Analytics without Borders Event Report

January 7, 2018

Analytics without Borders, the first event of the second year of ASC (as well as the last event of 2017), had more than 70 attendees eager to learn about institutional data and analytics from a group of prominent faculty in senior administration roles. Judith Singer shared details on a few of the projects that she worked on in her role as a Senior Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity. Matthew Miller offered five intriguing provocations about using data in the University administration. Finally, Dean Xiao-Li Meng thoroughly answered a series of questions that were offered to the speakers before the event. The questions touched upon how institutional data together with analytics guide the decision-making process of academic administrators, types of analytics projects that they like to pursue, and commonalities between administrative and academic research.

If you'd like to watch a recording of the event or look through the slides, you can visit the ASC Group on HTP. If you are not registered yet, click "Request to Join" and wait a bit for us to respond. Then you will be able to use this link to download the video and speaker slides. 

The speakers had a plethora of interesting material to cover so the event went overtime and we didn't have a chance to have a post-event networking reception. We received feedback from many attendees that they would like have another event dedicated to just that, so stay tuned for details on a second-year ASC networking social!
