Thought Exchange

Thoughtexchange is a virtual tool that we will be using throughout the UAT process. It allows users to share feedback and respond in real time. It is easily accessible from desktop and mobile browsers or through an app. With this tool you can share your thoughts, questions, or comments in response to open-ended questions, independently and confidentially. You can also read and rate thoughts shared by other participants, and discover what matters most to the group.

Pulse Surveys

Pulse surveys provide an opportunity for us to check-in with you and take the overall pulse of our university community during this time of academic and administrative transformation. This survey consists of 11 questions and will be sent out on a monthly basis to a random selection of 700 University of Alberta employees. Your feedback will help guide our approach throughout both the Service Excellence Transformation and Academic Restructuring initiatives.

Digital Feedback

Anyone at any time can provide feedback or ask a question using this form or by emailing uat@ualberta.ca. Answers to frequently asked questions can be found here and feedback collected is shared with both AWRG and SET teams.
