City wants to understand how students use digital technologies for learning to better support you with your use of technology and to improve the digital environment and services on offer. Share your experiences by completing City’s Student Digital Experience Insights Survey.

The Student Digital Experience Insights survey is a national survey to find out more about how you and your fellow learners use technology and how this affects your learning.  The University is running the survey because it knows that digital issues are important for everyone who learns and teaches here.

The survey will help:

  • Find out how you would like technology to be used in learning and teaching
  • Understand how you use our digital environment and services and how we could improve them
  • Target resources towards the issues that matter to you
  • Start a conversation with you about your digital skills, expectations and experiences

The LEaD team want to know how you have been using technology to support your learning over the pandemic, so that they can better understand what has worked well for you, what hasn’t and what they can do to make things better for students. It is important for you all to give your honest feedback so that the technology and services being implemented by the University are student-friendly and contribute to improving your student experience. I would encourage all students to complete this survey and take advantage of this opportunity to improve things at City!

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and as a thank you for your time, everyone who completes the survey will be entered in to a prize draw to win one of 6 £25 Amazon vouchers. All responses will be anonymous.

The survey is open now until Friday 30th April and you can complete it here.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought a sharper focus on digital learning and the digital challenges experienced by the City community. The survey provides us with a prime opportunity to gain feedback from our students on their experiences within the digital environment in order to identify the areas we can improve on and to understand how we can better support our students to develop the digital literacies they need to ensure success both in their academic studies and into employment.
