The University of Otago shares their experience of using data to remove barriers and provide support for disabled learners so they can succeed in tertiary education.

Data and technology are key capabilities that a tertiary education provider needs to get right to enable all learners to succeed, whatever that looks like for each learner. The University of Otago presented their experience at a sector knowledge-sharing session in late 2023.

We are pleased to share a recording of their presentation:

The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) outlines the session and introduces the Data and technology learner success capability.

The University of Otago discusses how they apply insights from the data they collect to understand learner experiences and needs, then how they use this data to ensure suitable resources are available for disabled learners.

Learner Success Capability Session series to continue in 2024

We will continue to host Learner Success Capability Sessions this year alongside the sector. These sessions aim to bring together tertiary providers in the spirit of learning, knowledge sharing and collaboration, and to enhance individual, group and organisational development.
