Maynooth University’s Irish National Digital Experience (INDEx) Survey

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 16:45

The purpose of the INDEx Survey is to understand more about the digital experiences and expectations of students and staff who teach in Irish higher education. All students and staff who complete the survey will contribute to the evidence that informs important decision-making around digital teaching and learning within Maynooth University – and will influence the future enhancement of digital teaching and learning across the Irish higher education sector. The INDEx Survey is being coordinated by Ireland’s National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

All staff who in engage in teaching as part of their role are invited to participate in this survey. This includes all who teach students or staff as well as all who support learning and teaching, on campus and/or online.
The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete (about 20 short questions). The survey asks questions about your experiences of the institutional digital environment and your use of technology for teaching, learning and assessment. All questions are optional. Your data will not become part of the dataset for the study until you click YES on the consent form at the end of the survey, and then FINISH. You may withdraw at any point before this final step, simply by leaving the survey.

Your participation is completely confidential. The survey data will be analysed by researchers at Maynooth University and at the National Forum. The findings will be used to understand more about students’ digital engagement, experiences, and expectations so that we can work together towards enhancing digital learning and teaching.
