Moving into Analytics: Practical Steps

Thursday, May 30 | 4:30PM–6:00PM | Grand Ballroom C/D
Session Type: Professional Development

As colleges and universities move toward greater use of analytics, they are frequently hampered by their existing data systems and organizational structures. Though there are technical considerations, often the most critical barriers involve organizational processes, policies, and communications—or the lack thereof. Creating a foundation for data sharing requires a collaborative effort across institutional units; analytics requires this foundation as well as attention to useful metrics. Participants will leave this workshop with "big ideas" about data sharing and analytics to apply to their own contexts. A basic familiarity with the emerging need for data analytics in higher education will be helpful.
