Builds on work of the DERBI project – student enrolment (1st year JHS)
  • Service design & enhancement techniques e.g. blueprinting, story-telling, modelling
  • Current students – focussing on retention, progression and achievement
  • Project runs from 1 March 2011 to 31 August 2012
intended outcomes
Intended Outcomes
  • Scoping out of an IT solution to ‘traffic light’ students who may be in need of additional support ultimately improving retention, progression and achievement
  • Academic and support staff access to this information: not intended to be a student facing/self diagnosis tool – but that may come later
  • Supportive, university-led interventions
  • Review of support mechanisms and communications
methodologies
Methodologies
  • Project committee
  • Academic literature
  • Statistical research
    • Withdrawal calendar
    • Progression & completion statistics
    • “Risks” of changing study
  • Student personas and storyboarding
  • Service mapping
  • Face-to-face contact with students and staff
  • Sector practice and JISC clusters
academic background
Academic background
  • The concept of “engagement” is too difficult to pin one single definition to (Trowler, 2010)
  • “…one of the most significant periods of crisis for first year undergraduate students is at the immediate commencement of their studies.” (Fitzgibbon & Prior, 2006, p.18)
  • Dropping out is not always negative for the student; an institution’s perception of withdrawal is not always reflected in certain individual experiences (Quinn et al., 2005)
  • “Institutions often use assessment to explain why something has failed but pay little attention to explaining why something succeeds.” (Siegel, 2011, p.13)
bringing all of this together
Bringing all of this together…
  • Student Dashboard – both staff- and student-facing versions
  • Improving support mechanisms (formal and informal)
  • Identifying areas of good practice
  • Informing other projects where relevant
  • Ongoing recommendations to the University’s Executive
