Evidence for enhancement
The current Enhancement Theme reflects on data within the Scottish HE sector. The Enhancement Themes website has information on using data:
Defining and capturing evidence
Includes a higher education data landscape resource, which helps navigation around common data sets and their relationship to key quality activities.
Student engagement and demographics
Listening to and understanding different student perspectives in relation to supporting activities on retention and progression. Investigating methods institutions use to communicate student voice impact.
Optimising existing evidence
Focus on upskilling, aiming at increasing skills and knowledge in data and evidence use.
Exploring learning analytics
Exploring current thinking on learning analytics with the aim of sharing good practice in policy and practice development.
Where to find information to support annual quality processes.
