The impetus for the initial iteration of PATS were the national results for the Course Evaluation Questionnaire (CEQ), which indicated that disciplines such as Engineering and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) were not performing as well as other discipline areas on the good teaching scale.
- 2009 – Initial pilot of PATS in Monash Faculty of IT (results & experiences)
- 2010 – ALTC Teaching Fellowship open to all Monash academics. Staff from 7 faculties participated in semester 2, 2010 and semester 1, 2011 (results & experiences)
- 2012 – Council of Australian Directors of Academic Development (CADAD) funded project to trial PATS across 5 Australian higher education institutions (results & experiences)
- 2013 – OLT National Senior Teaching Fellowship funded program to expand the number of Australian higher education institutions using PATS.
In semester 1, 2013, 8 institutions are participating. If you would like to discuss opportunities for involvement of your institution, please contact us.
