    Factors Influencing University Student Satisfaction, Dropout and Academic Performance: Equity (NCSEHE)

    This NCSEHE funded study, Factors Influencing University Student Satisfaction, Dropout and Academic Performance: An Australian Higher Education Equity Perspective, looks at the determinants of student satisfaction at university, with a focus on equity group differences. The influence of student satisfaction on being at risk of dropping out of university, actual university degree dropout, and academic performance at university are also examined. Students from equity groups, particularly non-English speaking background students and students with disability, have lower levels of satisfaction across various satisfaction dimensions. Further, students from equity groups have poorer academic scores and are more likely to be at risk of university dropout, with health and financial reasons identified to be important determinants for leaving university. These findings support the need for multi-faceted initiatives to support higher education students from equity groups. (Ian W. Li and David R. Carroll, University of Western Australia)

    Webinar: New and under-used strategies for accessible graphics in higher education

    This webinar was hosted by ADCET and the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND) in March, 2017. The presenter was Leona Holloway. 

    As part of a two year project, Leona Holloway and her project team worked closely with vision impaired students in higher education, disability advisors, academics and accessible formats producers. They found evidence that vision impaired students are missing out on important information conveyed in graphics and that this is affecting their education experience and their choice of study and career paths. Through a series of pilot studies, they explored a wide range of strategies to improve this situation, with a strong focus on practical implementation. In this webinar, they will draw from their findings to offer insight on:

    • identifying which graphics need to be made accessible
    • new technologies that students can use to gain independent access to graphics
    • choosing the most suitable techniques and technologies to make graphics accessible
    • resources to help implement solutions
