New Website to Empower Student Choice

COPHE Members have welcomed Education Minister Christopher Pyne’s announcement today of an innovative new website that will enable students to compare the quality of teaching and learning in higher education institutions and study areas around Australia.

The Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching — or QILT — website replaces the MyUni website. It is based on thousands of surveys about students’ experiences and graduate job outcomes. New results will continue to be added over time ensuring the information available through QILT remains relevant and current.

This release only includes university information from 2013, but processing of data from private institutions is going well and COPHE has been assured they will be included in the January release. As the information is based on surveys, for data to be included, there has to be at least 25 responses to ensure validity.

QILT is the first data collection that gathers survey data for all students in higher education. It provides the information that students need to ensure they can make better choices about the courses and institutions that best meet their needs.

Visit the QILT website and give it a try at www.qilt.edu.au. At the moment, the QILT website houses data from the University Experience Survey (UES).  Data from the 2015 Student Experience Survey (SES) will be added to the QILT website in early 2016 to coincide with the release of the SES National Report.

QILT has everything covered - It is excellent and a big win for Chris Pyne who pushed for it.

Griffith VC Ian O’Connor, who led the working party that oversaw the product development, should be proud of this open access, publicly-funded product that makes it possible for people to actually compare courses at a range of universities, and in different disciplines.

Users can compare different study areas at up to six institutions at once, on median salary, full-time study, employment outcomes, experience of newly qualified graduates, skills development and student support. The data is drawn from high-quality sources, the graduation destination survey and the university experience survey.  http://campusmorningmail.com.au
