The 2020/21 Technology Initiatives round is now open.
The Technology Initiatives (TI) portfolio consists of major IT-related projects that receive significant annual funding and support from the university executive.
The Technology Governance Committee (TGC) would like to invite staff to submit suggestions for new initiatives to be funded in 2020/21.
TI projects innovate, improve process and support compliance across many areas of the university, including Research, Learning & Teaching, and our core administration activities.
The TI portfolio has been the vehicle for some of the most significant new system implementations and process improvements delivered at Charles Sturt.
- Workflow: Change of Grade: Allowing online submission, tracking and assessing of change of grade requests with grade updates automatically recorded.
- Assessment Scheduling & Student Support Tools (ASSiST): Providing students with tools to gauge and organise their workload, and request alternative assessment submission dates and support.
- CSU Recruitment Website Redevelopment: Resulting in a major improvement in the usability and personalisation of the site, helping to ensure prospective students can find relevant information.
- Converged IVT and Virtual Classroom Implementation
- Academic Integrity Policy Renewal
- TEQSA and ESOS Legislative Compliance
- Course Design, Accreditation and Publication Investigation/Implementation

The majority of these projects were born from initiatives submitted by university staff. This represents one of the strengths of the process. It provides the opportunity to harness ideas from the university community.
