Are Indigenous students adequately represented in unit feedback surveys at CDU?

Are Indigenous students adequately represented in unit feedback surveys at CDU?


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Penny Szybiak Director, Planning and Performance, Charles Darwin University

Date: Jun 25, 2018

Time: 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 7468
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open to the Public - All Welcome - Please Share

Abstract: In a new Indigenous HE funding environment, where program funding is increasingly being linked to the delivery of student outcomes, universities, like Charles Darwin University, will need to broaden the evidence base available to help measure and formulate support programs, to ensure they are delivering the desired outcomes.
Student surveys of their teaching and learning experience are one piece of evidence that could be used in this context. However, Indigenous student’s cohorts are small in comparison the broader university student body, and the extent to which the sub-set of students who most need support to succeed and/or be retained are represented within the survey data.
Therefore, this research aims, via an analysis of CDU MyView data from 2015 to 2017, to understand whether Indigenous students are adequately represented in the survey when whole of University data is being analysed. It also aims to understand if there are enough Indigenous student responses in the survey data to allow for statistically reliable analysis and decision making focused on just the Indigenous student cohort. And finally whether the same can be said for the Indigenous student cohort that is un-successful or not retained through to completion.

About Penny Szybiak: Penny is the Director of Planning and Performance at Charles Darwin University (CDU) and a student in the Master of Public Policy also at CDU. Her team is responsible for administering and reporting on the MyView survey of a student’s teaching and learning experience. Her team is also responsible for providing CDU’s community of policy and program managers with the evidence base required to measure and formulate programs which improve student outcomes at the University. She has more than 10 years’ experience in the Higher Education sector in an Institutional research capacity, and is a member of the Executive Committee for the Australasian Association of Institutional Researchers (AAIR). 

RSVP by Friday, 22 June 2018 via Outlook or thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au
