Digital technologies have fundamentally altered the way we communicate, live, learn and work. They have broken down barriers and given rise to new opportunities and challenges.

Taking a holistic view of the student experience, UQ must develop an integrated learning environment that combines our physical and digital landscape, delivering powerful learning opportunities for our students to thrive.

Information Technology will work on the following initiatives to achieve this goal:

  • Champion the University’s digital presence.
  • Prioritise teaching and learning above all else.
  • Invest in IT infrastructure renewal to enhance UQ’s online experience.
  • Provide students with a powerful, online learning experience.
  • Strive to maintain accessibility standards (WCAG 2.0).
  • Enhance the UQ digital environment.
  • Record lecture content by default.
  • Develop further Massive Open Online Courses and Small Private Online Courses.
  • Analyse and synthesise critical analytical data that leads to informed decision-making.
  • Demonstrate the benefits for the student experience under a ‘one UQ’ approach for printing.
  • Partner with business units to automate student-facing processes.
