  • 1. A Synthesis of Modelling Tools for Educational Management Systems Design ALT-C 2013: Technological Developments for Strategy and Institutional Practice Professor Tony Toole Faculty of Applied Design and Engineering
  • 2. ALT-C 2014: Technological Developments for Strategy and Institutional Practice An Overview of Management Modelling The purpose of management modelling is to encourage and contribute to a systematic and structured approach to management systems planning. It aids the planning process by presenting existing and proposed management systems in an easily assimilated way. The models are designed to assist systems thinking by providing routes through the planning process that generate consistency and lead to realistic and achievable solutions.

  • 5. ALT-C 2014: Technological Developments for Strategy and Institutional Practice Soft Systems Modelling The Soft Systems Modelling approach encourages constant reflection on how things happen in real world situations. It doesn’t so much describe how the information management system actually works, but how the stakeholders think it works, how they think it should work and how they would personally like it to work. Root Definition of the problem Conceptual Model of the solution Designing a realistic and workable system
  • 6. ALT-C 2014: Technological Developments for Strategy and Institutional Practice Case Study: Student Attendance Monitoring Root Definition of the problem: The creation and implementation of an information management system that accurately and consistently records and reports on the participation of students in planned learning activities. Conceptual Model of the solution: 1. A data capture system that records individual student attendance at scheduled, location specific, learning activities; 2. An online information management application that receives attendance data and presents it for management use at module, course, faculty and institutional levels; 3. The management of data capture being the responsibility of the individual session tutor and that automatically populates the online management application; 4. The student attendance information being used at tutor and course team level to trigger student support actions where problems are indicated; 5. The student attendance information being available to appropriate levels of management for internal and external performance reporting.
