Understanding and Using Your Data on Adult Learners


In higher education, we often have more data than we know what to do with. Despite this, don't let important data about adult learners sit on a shelf!

In this webinar, Barry Darnell, Senior Director of Higher Education Initiatives at the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), will discuss:

  • How to move beyond data and toward assessment and reassessment of data, understanding aggregation and disaggregation as tools to measure equity storytelling with data.
  • What should you do with insights from data?
