Data Coach 2018-19 Program Flier  

Data Coaching

We’ve Just Certified 12 new Data Coaches!

The Center for Teaching Excellence, in collaboration with the Office of Institutional Research and the Office of Workforce and Economic Development, is offering this exciting professional development opportunity called “Data Coach”!

The Data Coach Program aims to build the research and data capacity of the College by providing faculty intensive training to become certified Data Coaches. As a Data Coach, faculty receive a minimum of 12 hours of training on how to access, analyze, and utilize data for program review, departmental planning, grants, and other college processes. They then “coach” their fellow faculty to get the most of the data available.

Group and Individual Data Coaching Sessions will be available in Spring!

In the meantime, check out our website to see who’s coaching this year.
