MIC students have consistently engaged with StudentSurvey.ie over the years yielding above average response rates.

 

Survey Working Group

In 2018, the Quality Office in MIC embarked on a campaign to raise awareness of the results of StudentSurvey.ie and to invite members of our academic community, Director of Teaching and Learning, Director of Student Life, and MISU representatives to form a survey work group with the intention of exploring in-depth the results from StudentSurvey.ie.

The group met in November 2018 and set out its objectives. These include to analyse and utilise student survey data to inform quality enhancement at student, staff and institutional level.  The initial task identified by the group was to perform an analysis of MIC StudentSurvey.ie data (2016 -2018). In particular, the individual questions that contribute to the indicators; student-faculty interaction, effective teaching practices, quality of interactions, supportive environment.

 

The results were presented to the group in March 2019 and following discussion, the group have drawn up a number of key recommendations that were reported to senior management for consideration.

While the work of the group is still in its infancy, bringing together relevant stakeholders with a clear set of objectives has allowed for a more diverse and informed approach to understanding what our students are telling us and how best to respond.
