Data collection, assessment, and analysis are key elements in guiding education abroad offices toward improvements and growth. Equally important is the communication of the results and findings from that data to stakeholders and collaborators. How does your office collect its data? How do you identify and leverage research relevant to your programs and practices? What methods can you use to effectively communicate your research findings?

In this NAFSA On-Demand e-Learning Seminar series, presenters share best practices and examples for collecting, analyzing, and applying data to improve programs, as well as how to communicate and demonstrate these findings to other stakeholders.
