How do we communicate results from data collected through surveys and interviews to improve international education programs and services? How can we best share these results with either scholarly or practitioner/policy-oriented audiences to advocate for implementing necessary change to lead to desired outcomes and achieving strategic goals? This course will provide strategies to help you effectively convey your findings from program/staff/student assessments and evaluations and other research efforts to different audiences, whether through publications or presentations.
As Part 4 of the 4-part Series on Data-Driven Decision Making, this e-Learning course provides participants with answers to questions such as:
- How can I present my data to policy-makers and practitioners who were not involved with the project?
- How do I communicate with different audiences if I am relying on a single dataset?
- How can I share my data and analysis to effect change and reach strategic international education goals?
After attending this NAFSA e-Learning course, participants will be able to:
- Use data to advocate for international education at institutions, organizations, and with policy-makers;
- Explore opportunities for collaboration with other key stakeholders to advocate for meeting strategic goals and priorities;
- Use data to improve programs and services; and
- Leverage findings to advocate for international education with various stakeholders.
