How does post-secondary education influence students' career confidence? How does career intention influence students' academic success? And what role do career aspirations play in students' education decisions?
Based on new research conducted with more than 11,000 post-secondary students in 2018, this presentation will dig deep into the relationship between career development and post-secondary studies.
Are you overwhelmed by your data? Do you need more resources but are unsure of how to successfully demonstrate that need? Do your stakeholders receive spreadsheets and numbers instead of the meaningful data stories?
This presentation will highlight some themes and best practices for approaching data such as:
- clean data & data definitions
- using data to develop compelling business cases
- developing benchmarks/performance indicators
- trend identification
- examining data to discover the right questions to ask
- shifting from data dumps to data storytelling
We'll also share the shift in culture the University of Toronto Scarborough Arts & Science Co-op department created to develop data curiosity across the team. And we’ll talk briefly about pivot tables and data visualization, because they are awesome.
Some of our success stories demonstrating impact that we’ll share are related to:
- using data to develop stronger faculty relationships
- creating successful budget business cases
- developing term benchmarks for recruitment activity
- changing our processes based on learnings from our data
