Pembrokeshire College, the first case study college and our prime early-adopter, now with over 50,000 interactions, is developing its use of VocalEyes ensuring that new students are kept up to date with decisions already made as well as generating new ones. Pembrokeshire College is also using VocalEyes to help staff become more involved in the day to day running of the college.
Students have started a plan to run surfing lessons after a surf school was suggested and highly-rated.
Staff ideas for the last day of term included holding a ‘choir in a day’ event; running craft activities and simply closing the college on Christmas Eve. However, the most popular idea was to wear a Christmas jumper and donate £1 to the college’s chosen charity (The Air Ambulance). Staff will have an informal get-together over mince pies, coffee or mulled wine having decided, collectively to forgo the free Christmas buffet that had been provided in the past.
Earlier in this academic year, a new student discipline policy was introduced as a result of an idea generated by a staff member on VocalEyes. In the previous academic year, staff made suggestions for cost and efficiency savings with a reported value of £28,500.
