Abstract

Many university programs are under pressure to create an
analytics-based evidence culture to demonstrate performance
excellence and justify their continued existence. How and where to begin are questions often asked by programs feeling that they have little data (or the right kind of data). The temptation is to work through methodological issues first; however, as experience at one Australian regional university demonstrated, this is the wrong place to start. A better place to start is knowing what the program is and what it is about and then placing this understanding in the broader context of university and sector regulatory compliance requirements and expectations. Presented here are the questions that were asked and a summary of achievements showing the student learning
and development assistance portfolio in a central Learning and Teaching unit was heading in the right direction.
