W7 Using Data to Promote Effective Educational Development Planning and Practice


  • Bonnie Mullinix, Walden University
  • Carol Hurney, Colby College
  • R. Todd Benson, Harvard Graduate School of Education

This workshop engages participants in considering what data is most useful to informing educational development practices. Grounded in strategic planning constructs, participants will examine how national datasets inform assessment and program development (e.g., FSSE-Faculty Survey of Student Engagement and COACHE-Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education). Participants will analyze a dataset from POD/COACHE partnership that includes items designed for educational developers. Additionally, participants will explore institutional and center data sources that support assessment and planning efforts. Finally, participants will review recent tools (e.g., syllabus rubrics, classroom observation protocols, and other instruments) that can complement their data portfolio.

Audience: Administrators (Assoc. Deans, Deans, Vice Provosts, Assoc. VPs); Center Directors; Experienced Educational Developers
