"Using Institutional Data to Inform the Post-2020 Future"
Please join us for a discussion on “Using Institutional Data to Inform the Post-2020 Future.” Using brief data vignettes from Institutional Research surveys conducted pre-and post-COVID, this session aims to contribute to Serie Center conversations about what a “new normal” might look like at Macalester in the semesters ahead. In some cases, IR data point to pre-existing challenges to student success that may have been magnified by COVID, particularly around student workload, mental health, equity, and shifting student expectations among entering first years. In other cases, IR data point to the value of particular aspects of the Macalester experience that were reaffirmed in novel ways this past year, especially around place-based residential living and learning as well as inclusive pedagogical practices. Finally, IR will reflect on what a “new normal” might look like in our office as well. The presentation of these data vignettes will leave time for and invite discussion. If you would like, you can subscribe to the Serie Center Events Google Calendar and add events of interest to your own calendar. An email with the link to join the event will be sent via cst-news.
