Part 2 of 2 for Using OnTask on personalise feedback and support for your course

Are you teaching in a large course? Do you find it a challenge to support all your students with timely and personalised feedback? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are invited to attend this workshop!

We especially invite staff who are looking to implement OnTask in the Spring semester, so that you will have the necessary course details to strategise OnTask feedback. 

In this 2-part online workshop, you will learn about OnTask, an automated feedback software application that:

  • Offers you a place to collate information about your students
  • Enables you to create text conditions to personalise messages based on the information
  • Sends the email to all your students.

Part Two of this workshop will be a hands-on session, taking you through the steps of setting up and creating conditions for sending personalised messages to your students. 

OnTask is the outcome of an OLT-funded project and backed by research. To date, impact studies are showing benefits for students, with regards to improvements in study habits and course performance. Students have expressed a greater feeling of belonging and support, and valued the care shown by instructors in their personalised feedback, as well as the timely information about their progress and performance over the course.

This event is facilitated by the Connected Intelligence Centre (CIC).

Lisa-Angelique Lim is a postdoctoral research fellow with CIC, specialising in learning analytics feedback systems, in particular OnTask. Lisa recently completed her PhD at the University of South Australia, where she worked closely with university academics to design and evaluate OnTask feedback in their courses.
