Data Talks, offered by the Teaching+Learning Lab, is an MIT-wide workshop series stemming from a cross-functional data/survey team comprised of offices across OVC and the Institute. It aims to increase the capacity of staff who are charged with conducting analysis or evaluation. The next workshop is Representativeness & Response Rates on February 20, led by Melissa Barnett (TLL), exploring the relationship between survey response rates and survey representativeness. The last workshop of this academic year is Storytelling with Data on March 19, led by Sue Acton (CAPD) and Kate Weishaar (First-Year Experience Program), exploring the mechanics of storytelling with data and examining a strong example from within OVC. All MIT staff are welcome to register.
