The objective of the project is to review and redesign student processes to better meet the needs uncovered through public consultations. A specialized support team is working in collaboration with students, process owners, managers, professional staff, and support staff using user-centred methodologies to design value-added processes that take maximum advantage of the digital while answering users’ requests for human interactions.
During the initial research and consultation phase of the Digital Strategy initiative, a number of key findings clearly indicated that users are frustrated with some of our processes and have a growing expectation toward the use of digital tools and platforms. We understand that our policies and processes are a reflection of the essence of our institution and the review/redesign of our processes is one way that we plan to better address students’ needs.
In nearly all cases, the community believes that the focus should be on making better use of existing technology rather than adding more technology.
