WHY DATA MATTERS: FOR STUDENT SUCCESS IN A POST PANDEMIC WORLD
THE UKZN TEACHING & LEARNING OFFICE (UTLO) CORDIALY INVITES YOU TO A: WEBINAR
Topic: WHY DATA MATTERS – FOR STUDENT SUCCESS IN A POST PANDEMIC WORLD
ABOUT THE SEMINAR:
Analytics is not simply data summarizing and reporting. A pandemic research study looked actions taken across the United States during the pandemic to support, assist, and retain students in crisis.
This work was a shift from past analytics practice and from using historic data as source predictions.
Findings told us much about current students in college, and the types of support that make a difference in student success.
This study makes a case for how higher education must embrace analytics if we are to support our current student populations.
