EduData Summit is a premium event focusing on data and its impact on the higher education sector
Humankind is generating data at an accelerating rate. Data and its applications are fundamentally changing the way we view and interact with the world. It can be confounding or empowering; frustrating or liberating; undermining or reinforcing.
For educators it is no different, endless spreadsheets and dashboards are being called upon to direct how, where and what our young people learn; how, where, what and with whom our researchers conduct their work.
If you’re a “datahead” you need to learn how to draw out the right stories from your data; if you’re not, you may need to develop an understanding of how to penetrate all the charts and numbers and ask the right questions.
From rankings to accreditations, QA to KPIs, performance management to bibliometrics, the EduData Summit has been established to help develop understanding and share best practices in this first event to explore how data can help make universities better.
