Where did they go? Graduate Destinations Survey Update

As of the 11th of August, only 14% of 2020 Graduates have completed the Graduate Destinations Survey. Can you help? If you, or someone you know, manages a social media or networking group with your recent graduates, you can help out by posting some information and encouraging involvement!

The Ako Marake | Evaluation & Student Insights Team has been collecting data on UC grads through the annual Graduate Destinations Survey (GDS). The survey invites all graduates to participate during the year following the completion of their studies.

The graduates are asked about any current employment, and/or further study, and also for feedback on the courses they completed and the skills they learned. Remember, the data collected from the GDS feeds into the Graduate Destinations dashboard, where you can find insights from previous years.

Need some text for your social media post? Here’s some we’ve used before!

Where have they gone? Graduate Destinations is coming!

Have you ever wondered what happens to UC graduates once they leave us? Look no further!

The Ako Marake | Evaluation and Student Insights team will invite all former students who completed a degree in 2020 to complete the Graduate Destinations Survey next week.

The Graduate Destinations Survey (or GDS for short) is one of UC’s longest-standing annual surveys. It asks recent graduates about their employment, any volunteer roles they hold, and whether they’re undertaking any further study. The GDS helps provide advice to current and prospective UC students around trends in the employment market, further studies, and salary information. It also provides information to help improve our programmes and student support services.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on the data, you can check out last year’s findings on ESI’s data dashboards here. Otherwise, keep your eyes peeled for the 2021 results due for release at the end of September.

For any questions, or if you would like ESI to come to speak to your team about this dashboard and others, please email Ellie Kay and Elyse Thompson at surveys@cantebury.ac.nz.

Course, Teaching and Teaching Assistant/Tutor Evaluation results are available now

Accessing your Course, Teaching and TA/Tutor evaluation results is easy! Ako Marake | Evaluation and Students Insights team has created a guide to help you access your evaluation results.

We invite you to actively engage in closing the loop on the course evaluation by providing brief written information to students on the comments made. This helps students see the value in providing feedback. Even though the students who have provided the feedback won’t directly benefit from this, future students will see that you take evaluation results seriously. This results in increased evaluation response rates, as students are more likely to feel their opinions are valued. You may wish to do this on LEARN, on the CIS or by other means. This template form can be used and then uploaded to LEARN.

Now it’s the time to put in your request for Semester 2 teaching evaluations or TA/Tutor evaluations in LEARN. To find out how to request an evaluation, follow the handy guide here. Please check out the 2021 Student Evaluation of Teaching calendar for the scheduled survey windows. Note, there is a deadline for requests on each survey window. Don’t wait till it’s too late to request for one!
