CAUDIT Members are surveyed annually to determine the Top Ten Topics affecting the strategic application of digital capabilities in support of their organisation's mission.
The CAUDIT Top Ten is a vital tool highlighting the most significant areas of interest and opportunity for ICT leaders in Australian and New Zealand higher education and research sectors.
The CAUDIT Top Ten forms part of CAUDIT's Strategic Plan.
The 2018 CAUDIT Member Representative's Top Ten, along side their 2017 rankings, are:
Supporting Student Success
Improving student outcomes through an institutional approach that strategically leverages technology

Developing and implementing a fit-for-purpose, whole of organisation strategy for the institution’s digital future
Supporting innovative approaches to teaching and learning through appropriate applications of technology

CAUDIT develops a short narrative which accompanies each topic to provide some context and background and you can download this for the current and past years using the links below. You will note that we changed from a focus on 'issues' to 'topics' in 2017 in order to better reflect the positive way each area is viewed.
