Participate in the Student Digital Experience Tracker

The Student Digital Experience Tracker is a survey and student engagement process designed to help you learn more about students’ experiences of digital learning.

The Student Digital Experience Tracker allows universities to:

•             make better informed decisions about the digital environment

•             target resources for improving digital provision

•             plan other research, data gathering and student engagement around digital issues

•             demonstrate quality enhancement

We will be holding a webinar on Tuesday 21st November at 13.00 CET (12.00 UK and Portugal) to provide more information for European universities thinking of joining. Participation in the webinar and this year’s Tracker process is free of charge.
