Over the previous 3 months, new unit and course monitoring dashboards have been developed using resources provided by the Structural Adjustment Funding (SAF) initiative. The dashboard design and development has been undertaken by CIU in close collaboration with staff from the PVC(A) Office, Office of Planning and Quality, Unit/Course Coordinators and UNE school academic co-ordinator/managers. The development is a key component of our plans to foster ongoing improvement of information provided to academic coordinators and management for effective monitoring and review of units and courses at UNE.
There are two new dashboards:
1. The Unit Monitoring Dashboard provides interactive information to support existing Unit Monitoring activities and includes commendations, action plans and student survey information at school, discipline and individual unit levels. NOTE: The Unit Monitoring Dashboards replace the Unit Monitoring Reports released for each trimester once unit grade and survey information had been finalised.
2. The Course Monitoring Dashboard provides information across a course lifecycle:- from the application phase, then through progress, grades and completion along with course survey results covering student satisfaction, further study and employment. Demographic and cohort analysis has been provided throughout the lifecycle.
The Dashboards are NOW AVAILABLE for use by UNE staff.
The Dashboards can be accessed by any of the following methods:-
A. Select the “Corporate Intelligence” link (bottom right) on UNE Staff Website page: http://www.une.edu.au/staff. On the page that opens, select the option “Academic Quality Management: Course and Unit Monitoring”. Logon when prompted using your UNE logon and password.
B. On the UNE Corporate Intelligence Centre: https://sps.une.edu.au/sites/biteam/ci-centre, select the option “Academic Quality Management: Course and Unit Monitoring”. Logon when prompted using your UNE logon and password.
C. Go directly to the Corporate Intelligence Webpages http://planning.une.edu.au and select the option “Academic Quality Management: Course and Unit Monitoring”. Logon when prompted using your UNE logon and password.
These dashboards, where possible draw information from source systems on a daily basis and at significant stages in the academic cycle (i.e. start and end of trimesters) to ensure information is up to date as possible. The dashboards are designed for staff to interact with information presented to identify patterns of success and aid analysis of areas for concern or improvement. Multiple instances of the dashboard can be opened on a single system using the standard internet browser window and tab functionality so unit and course health can be readily compared and analysed.
The dashboards operate within UNE supported Web browsers (Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Firefox) on both PC and Mac.
