HERDSA Webinar - Looking under the QILT: using QILT data in higher education research
Thursday 2nd June, 2022 1-2pm AEST

Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) includes four national surveys across the higher education student life cycle. The Student Outcomes Survey (SES) which looks at the experience of current commencing and completing, undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students, the Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) which looks at graduate outcomes 4-6 months after course completion, the GOS-Longitudinal (GOS-L) which follows up GOS respondents about three years later and the Employer Satisfaction Survey (ESS) which looks at data from the supervisors of GOS respondents. For this webinar Lisa Bolton, Director of QILT Research and Strategy, will explain the QILT surveys and how institutions can access the QILT survey data for higher education research. Professor Denise Jackson (Edith Cowan University) will then present a case study of her research which used QILT data to evaluate progress in developing employability and to determine influences on graduate employment.
