What is a Focus Group?

WSU and Learning Futures regularly explore new software and technology options throughout the year. There is a product development lifecycle that runs from initial scoping through proof of concept, to piloting and institution-wide trialing and full-scale adoption.

As part of the product development lifecycle, we need to gather feedback and other recommendations from our key stakeholders—you!

These focus groups are an important tool for engaging with stakeholders to ensure the programs and tools we incorporate into our digital teaching and learning ecosystem meet student and staff needs.

Focus groups are information gathering sessions, not workshops. They are an opportunity for us to learn together about new and exciting software and other products, and they are an opportunity for you to contribute to the digital direction of the University. You can learn more about the focus groups on offer here:
