#174: The Data-led University: Making Sense Of The Numbers
Welcome to the third episode of The Edge: Innovation and Intelligence Imperative, a series from The Edtech Podcast, supported by Salesforce.Org. This series is all about the leaders in higher education doing things a bit differently. You can find the last episode of the series here.
What’s in this episode?
This week’s episode is all about Data. We’re in a LIVE discussion with University leaders covering the role of data in teaching, research and student support. We look at how data can be an impetus to positive change, what data blindspots to avoid, and how to make sure that you are asking the right questions to get the best from data.
You can follow the conversation using #EdtechEdge and #edtechpodcast
We hope you enjoy listening to the possibilities of data and the things we should consider as we work in and around it!
