Since 2013, over 300,000 first and final year undergrads and taught postgrads have used StudentSurvey.ie to share their thoughts and feedback with their higher education institution.
But in that time what difference has StudentSurvey.ie made in your institution? How have the results been used to enhance the student experience across the 25 higher education institutions that take part?
In preparation for a new StudentSurvey.ie showcase, we are asking staff and student representatives to reflect upon 9 years of StudentSurvey.ie and how this major national survey has made an impact in your institution.
To help in this reflection, the StudentSurvey.ie Analysis and Impact Group prepared the StudentSurvey.ie Discussion Paper on Evidencing Value through Impact, which you can download HERE.
How to submit your case studies
Institutions can submit as many examples as they wish, and all submissions collected during the consultation will be included in the output.
Be as detailed and creative as you like! The submissions can be accompanied by photos, videos, staff and student testimonials, whatever helps you tell your story.
Submissions can be made via SurveyMonkey by following this LINK.
If you prefer, you can use this FORM and send it to the StudentSurvey.ie Project Manager directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All case studies must be submitted no later than 8 October 2021.
The last StudentSurvey.ie publication examining the impact of the survey results was in 2015, when the survey was only just taking root. You can download that report HERE.
We are excited to see how far along the participating institutions have come in that time and to showcase this progress, creativity and collaboration. We are planning a multimedia showcase, including a published collection of case studies, an online platform, and the case studies will feature in the StudentSurvey.ie Practitioners Forum 2021 (being planned for early November but this has yet to be confirmed).
Note: All group photos were taken before COVID-19 and the need for social distancing.
