Penn State Institutional Research Interest Group

Data Utilization in Support of Adult Learners

Thursday, February 23, 2012
1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
508 Rider

Panelists: Martha Jordan, Director of Admission Services and Adult Learner Advocacy; Jennifer Moore, Market Research Manager; Rachel Stover, Associate Director, Outreach Educational & Institutional Analytics

The goal of the event is to help the audience members understand some of the specific ways that we have sought to utilize external and student data sources to better understand our adult learners, as well as their educational needs and preferences. The panel will consist of an administrator responsible for championing adult learner needs across the University, and two members of the Outreach Educational & Institutional Analytics and Market Research teams providing some case studies of how adult learner-specific questions have been addressed, and making audience members aware of the tools and other resources available to them for creating similar types of studies.

Penn State provides the service University-wide, and participants shouldn’t need to install or purchase anything. After you’ve registered, you will receive the information you need to connect.
