EDUCAUSE defines analytics as the use of data, statistical analysis, and explanatory and predictive models to gain insight into and act on complex issues. The data used in this process include a vast mix of information, from student behavior to departmental spending and everything in between. The use of these data for predictive analytics presents complex ethical questions that institutions need to consider as part of their analytics initiatives. Join these higher education leaders as they discuss the ethics of analytics and what it means for your institution.
