  • Program Book Abstract:Achieving a high response rate to online surveys is challenging for many institutions. Engaging Generation Y students requires a different approach due to the changing ways this generation communicates. This presentation reports on a push pull strategy implemented at Otago Polytechnic to boost response rates to online surveys with a focus on Generation Y who constitute the largest cohort of current students. A combination of changing communication methods to suit Generation Y students together with supporting teaching staff to engage with student feedback more effectively has resulted in a marked increase in participation rates by students.
