Data-Driven Teaching in the Age of Evidence

Monday, June 27, 2022

4:00 -5:00 pm CDT


Higher education is fully immersed in an era that stresses the importance of data-driven decisions and results. According to Beach, Sorcinelli, Austin, and Rivard (2016), this new age is influenced by "heightened stakeholder interest in the outcomes of undergraduate education and characterized by a focus on assessing the impact of instruction on student learning.” This presentation will provide examples of evidence-based, high-impact practices (HIPs) that faculty can implement in their courses. In addition, an overview of evidence-based instruction and its benefits will be provided.

Currently, he is part of a workgroup through the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD).
