Effective Systems of Evidence-Led Improvement: How to Make Your Colleagues Love the Data?

Brief Description

The assumption that better student performance data invariably leads to improved student outcomes does not, unfortunately, hold true in many schools and colleges. Often, many challenges get in the way of improving student outcomes. There are specific challenges in using data to empower teaching effectiveness on an ongoing basis. Getting the right insight at the right time from data requires a commitment to both informational and organizational change. This presentation explores some lessons learned from our experience. The goal is to provide participants with some insights for making data work in higher education settings. The presenters hope to foster a lively discussion on the feasibility of evidence-based improvement strategies in the context of resistance to change.
