Abstract

The focus of the presentation is to explore the impact of student academic learning support programs or activities on student success at University of Southern Queensland. Student academic learning support programs are constantly challenged because they are often the first to be culled or reduced; particularly, in times of economic downturn or tight budgeting. This presentation will showcase a data framework that might be applicable to other similar student academic learning support or student services program that are seeking to determine what and how their programs contribute to student learning outcomes. The data framework is underpinned by a theoretical , multiple case study that used mixed methods research to explore the extent of and relationships among a number of student academic learning offerings, developed and delivered by Learning and Teaching Services (LTS), a centralised learning and teaching unit, on student success. The study explored a number of retention outcomes as defined in the risk assessment framework of the newly established Australian regulatory body, Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). Currently, LTS, in collaboration with Sustainable Business Management and Improvement (SBMI), another centralised unit that provides the University with information and assurance services at the strategic and regulatory levels, are building a prototype data analytics dash board as proof of concept of the data framework.
