Hi everyone

I'll be doing all 8 Benchmarks!

It might sound ambitious, but we're a very small University, so there will be a lot of cross-over, and the same people responding to multiple Benchmarks, as well as the fact that I have a good handle on all aspects of the Benchmarking criteria from my central role, so I'm confident of being able to collate the institutional response from individual self-assessments.

I'm in the process of creating 8 surveys (using Qualtrics), which I will then circulate to relevant groups of people. Following the survey period, I hope to bring the groups together to discuss their responses collectively, BUT this will depend entirely on time/workloads etc.

At the University of Derby we will be doing benchmarks 1-6, just in the process of pulling the benchmark teams together now (groups of 5).
Cheers,
John

We had planned to do 3, but have now opted to do 2 - Benchmarks 1 and 2.   We felt they made a coherent pair, and were useful to focus on at the same time.  We have chosen them because the University is reviewing and rewriting its T&L Strategy, so the benchmarking and self-assessment findings will feed into that.

5 and 6, concentrating on staff.

Hoping it will be useful to start conversations about a more systematic approach to digital technologies training offer for staff. Also most of the technical services provided to support Technology for Teaching and Learning sits in our department which should make it easier to meet the deadline.

Hi,

Hi all

thanks to all those who have indicated which benchmarks you will be undertaking in this forum. I have set up a wiki to show you what this now looks like. For those who haven't yet had a chance to contributed to the forum, you can either do so, or enter your benchmarks directly into the wiki.

It all start to get a bit exciting as we see this coming together.

Thanks Michael.   Re the wiki - please can you correct Reading's entry?  We're doing BM 1 and 2 (not 2 and 5 as on the wiki).


It is getting exciting - just come back from the team assessment meeting for BM1.  The BM1 group have really enjoyed being part of this process and there is a good buzz and interest about what we are doing.

Cardiff University have completed all 8 benchmarks and will be uploading them on Monday. 

I'll look forward to meeting you all in Milton Keynes in a couple of weeks.

Best wishes
