The Sixty Minute (Data Dashboard) Makeover – in 1 hour 30 minutes!

Data – it’s everywhere in higher education. From the REF to the TEF, in the DLHE, NSS, HE-BCI and POLAR3, as used in KPIs and collected by HESA*, as part of learning analytics, data-informed decision making and beyond.

This workshop session will take a look at where our HE data path has led us so far and considers the next step in the journey – Business Intelligence and using data for strategic planning. We’ll introduce the idea of a data dashboard, share examples of use and give an overview of the Jisc/HESA BI Analytics labs work. The challenge will then be to create our own dashboards in under an hour, working our way through from the research question and user stories to collecting data sources and designing the dashboard. It’s not necessarily going to be easy but it will be incredibly useful and lots of fun!

*All acronyms will be explained in the workshop. Bring your acronym buster!
