Launch of Irish National Digital Experience (INDEx) Survey

14th October 2019

The Irish National Digital Experience (INDEx) Survey will be launched on Monday 14 October 2019 in the Lighthouse Cinema, Dublin, at 10-30-12.00. This national event will mark the start of the INDEx Survey, Ireland’s first ever survey of the digital experience, expectations and engagement of two key groups – students and all staff who teach in Irish higher education. The INDEx Survey gives the 29 participating higher education institutions a rare opportunity to contribute to the evidence that informs decision-making around digital within their institutions.

The INDEx survey will:

  • explore the perspectives of all staff who teach on the institutional digital environment and use of technology for teaching, learning and assessment
  • identify and highlight what makes a difference to students and staff who teach with respect to digital infrastructure, digital skills, digital tools and digital literacy· understand more about students’ digital experiences and expectations
  • gather feedback and empirical evidence from students and staff who teach, together and in a spirit of partnership, as a basis for future strategic decisions about digital initiatives and investments, i.e. “building our future together”
  • enable international benchmarking with other countries who have completed a similar survey (UK, Australia, New Zealand).

This national launch event marks the start of the survey campaign countrywide, which will be open for responses, from students and staff who teach, during October/November 2019. Each participating institution will choose its own three-week window within this period to run their survey on campus.

A national steering group led by the National Forum, including nominated representatives from across the sector, will oversee the implementation of the survey at institutional level.
