This is the follow-up survey to the ACODE Benchmarks for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Inter-Institutional Benchmarking Summit

Participant Information

Recently you institution participated in the ACODE Benchmarking Summit in Canberra. As a follow-up to this activity we now want to extend our understanding of how your institution used the benchmarks in the following areas:

- The benefit that you gained from undertaking the self-assessment.
- How many staff were involved.
- If there was sufficient coverage in the benchmarks.
- How you see this tool being used going forward.
- The relevance of the Benchmarks to your institutions current status in TEL.
- Did you feel you where the right person to do this on behalf of the institution.
- The evidence for the self-assessment was easy to find.
- The performance indicators used where clear defined enough to allow you to make a clear judgement as to what data would fulfil it.
- To what level this exercise will stimulate change at your institution,
- Relevant to your decision making capacity within the institution to see change occur.

There are three types of question in this survey, ones requiring either a text response, a yes/no response, or a response based on a 5 point scale, from strongly agree to strongly disagree, and based on a statement.

Confidentiality
 
Although the survey asks for your name and institution, this data will be separated from a data contained in the main body of the survey for reporting purposes, and you will not be identified in anyway in, or through this data. The only people who will see this will be the Benchmarking Facilitator and the ACODE Secretary. However, this information is required if Facilitator need to follow-up with you to clarify any of your responses, and/or if you have agreed to provide further information at a later date.
