  • Webinar: Better DataViz with the software already on your desk?

    Webinars

    March 28, 2019

    I’ll bet you have a lot of data. Data about student enrollment, participation, satisfaction, learning and experiences. Data that would undoubtedly help your institution better understand who is participating in programs and services, who is not, what students are learning and where there may be opportunities for improvement. Charts and graphs - when designed effectively - can aid us greatly in communicating success, failure and opportunities. Too often we lose opportunities to tell great stories because we use software defaults, want to show “all” the data, and end up producing convulated visuals that obscure what we really want our audience to know. This session will highlight 5 specific types of visualizations (all in Excel), and 5 overall good dataviz practices that can improve messaging, clarity, and audience understanding of your programs and services.

  • Webinar: Decolonizing Assessment

    Webinars

    May 7, 2019

    Assessment continues to be a hot topic in student affairs. We need data to support the stories we tell about the impact of our work. But as we learn more about Reconciliation, we are also learning how our current best practices are implicitly colonized. We started a conversation last year to being talking about how assessment is colonized, and this webinar is meant to continue that learning. Join our panel as they continue to consider and discuss the process of decolonizing our existing assessment practices in student affairs.
