Practical, repurposable tools to help you use data

Date: March 11 - 2019

As part of the current Enhancement Theme, QAA Scotland is hosting a series of monthly webinars aimed at helping you use data to enhance the student experience. Facilitated by a range of sector leaders and experts, these valuable sessions consider the use of different types of data (both quantitative and qualitative) in a range of contexts.

The webinars are proving to be of interest to a wide range of staff and students, and have attracted interest from all over the world. However, we designed them specifically for those in teaching leadership roles within the Scottish higher education sector.
