The Jisc Student Digital Experience Tracker is a survey tool that enables higher education institutions to explore how students use and feel about the digital tools, environment and support these institutions provide. The Tracker offers organisations valuable insight into how students are experiencing digitally enhanced learning, and provides an opportunity for them to engage students in the design of their curriculum and the digital environment. This international survey also provides benchmarking data for each participating institution against their sector average.

A number of universities from Australia/NZ participated in the Tracker in 2016/2017 (including La Trobe, Adelaide, UniSA, RMIT, Otago, VU). The 2016/17 international report is available to download from the Jisc website and Digital Literacies ANZ will be having a webinar in October about the Tracker experience and outcomes in Australia in 2016/2017.

Jisc will be running the 2018 tracker survey from October 2017  –  April 2018; if you are interested in participating, please complete the expression of interest form available from http://bit.ly/trackersignup18  before 31st October 2017.
