The goal of this series will be to advance the major ideas generated in the “data-smart action groups” that were convened at the 2017 University Data Summit, and to secure funding that will make the proposed solutions in to a reality.
In this second University Data breakfast meeting will continue to advance previous ideas and discussions regarding the development of a data-driven, real-time, academic engagement and student success platform that can be used by the collaborative teaching and learning community at Illinois.
We plan to submit a proposal to secure funding for a funding a major initiative to gather and use data from Illinois learners that can be used to evaluate academic progress, guide learning strategy, promote learning effectiveness, direct support and assistance, inform program design, and ultimately, to optimize University operations that impact academic health, wellness, and success in this population.
Outcomes: the outputs from this meeting will be used to create a funding proposal that can be used to explore interest from potential funding sources (e.g. private foundations).
