How can education abroad offices collect and use data for decisionmaking? Successful use of data can be applied to program review, student assessment, and in predicting long-term trends.

In many cases, the data you need may already exist in your databases. Knowing how to mine that data so that it provides useful and instructive information is key.

Eliminate redundancy and the risk of using “bad” or unreliable data during the collection process. Presenters will share examples and best practices on tracking and converting data into useful tools.


After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Review key questions in collecting useful data;
  • Articulate how to collect data in a way that is sustainable and allows for longitudinal analysis;
  • Examine how to best mine for data;
  • Discover how to convert data into useful information; and
  • Learn best practices for productive discussions and partnerships on data with other offices.

This webinar will incorporate discussion on the practical matters of database options, reporting tool options, and helpful resources available to the nontechnical international education professional. Sharing NAFSA webinars is a cost-effective method of staying up-to-date on the hottest topics facing the field today. Invite as many attendees as you wish for the price of one registration!
