New technologies are all the rage. Today’s tools claim to drive retention and student engagement. But are we getting the data we need? How can data truly ignite actions that improve educational effectiveness? This workshop will help educators work smarter, not harder by teaching them how to get the three types of data they need to track student knowledge gain, apply actionable analytics in the A&P classroom, and predict trends in a larger population of students. We’ll cover all the basics, from generating quantifiable learning objectives to analyzing student performance. Come ready to proof out your best teaching practices!
