New ITS advisory board to gain fresh insights from student community

Students are at the heart of everything we do, and a newly formed advisory board aims to increase student input into ITS projects.

Information Technology Services (ITS) has partnered with Student Affairs and the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology (EAIT) to create the Digital Environment Student Advisory Board. The student advisory board aims to collect and improve student feedback relating to each phase of an ITS project (idea, planning, design, development).

Every fortnight for several months, ITS will meet with 10 students across each faculty to discuss their digital experience. These students will also canvass the larger student community to obtain more diverse feedback. From identifying unsolved problems to testing newly released features, ITS will gain valuable insights to ensure we deliver real and desired value to UQ students.

It’s a fantastic two way street – the digital environment program benefits from regular student feedback, and the students learn about software-centric organisations and processes, while gaining valuable experience in user research techniques.
