  • To determine the problems or challenges that analytics might help solve
  • To determine what data we need to address these challenges

Non-UW event


Join us for "Emerging Technologies, Innovation, and Academic Transformation," the ELI 2012 Online Fall Focus Session, October 2–3. We all feel the need to innovate and transform our current practices to keep pace with a landscape that is rapidly evolving. While there is no shortage of innovations in teaching and learning, the process by which we discover them, select them for pilots, and consider them for full-scale implementation can be challenging.

Full program details are now available. Highlights include:

Educause report on doing analytics 'right'
