What sorts of data might be necessary for higher education institutions to support their operations? What is currently available? And what kinds of new data might be needed?
To answer these questions,
The faculty/staff of the Lebanese University are invited to join Centre MINE seminar organized by HECD, “Data for Decision Making Seminar: Managing the Postsecondary Education to Workforce Pipeline” which is scheduled on Thursday 22nd October 2020 at 3:00 pm Beirut time.
Higher education institutions need data to inform their operations and ultimately report their progress. It is assumed that there are extant management information systems, which, in their design, focus on the exigencies of managing higher education institutions including student enrollments and their “flows” through the education process. An underlying premise of the seminar is that while preserving the systems’ original administrative objectives, the information contained in them may be repurposed around better understanding the flows of students through the institution and, in combination with other information resources, including new and yet-to-be-developed ones, into the labor market, the so-called “Postsecondary Education to Labor Market Pipeline”. The seminar will provide information about similar exemplary efforts, present some “lessons learned” and present the initial steps of a data integration strategy.
To help prepare for the seminar, Dr. Jay Pfeifer is providing us with one page briefer which includes some references that you may find informative (it will be shared with registered staff).
Target audience: Academic and Administrative Staff
Anyone interested can register by accessing the link below by Tuesday 20th October.
