We are excited to announce that Discourse Analytics will be a part of this year’s Educause Annual Conference, and we can’t wait to connect with you! Our session “Demographics vs. Behaviors: Why Mindsets Matter for Student Outcomes” promises to be a game-changer in the world of higher education and data-driven decision-making.
In an era where AI and data-driven insights are transforming higher education, we often rely on demographic data for predictive models. This session will challenge the status quo by emphasizing the importance of behavioral data and mindsets for truly understanding students and enhancing their learning journey. Join us for a deep dive into why behavioral data and mindsets matter and how you can implement it effectively on your campus.
Session attendees will:
- Challenge preconceived notions about using demographic data in predicting student outcomes.
- Discover how behavioral data provides profound insights into student mindsets, fostering better engagement in their educational journey.
- Gain an understanding of the mathematical, practical, and social implications of incorporating behavioral data into algorithmic models.
Our session aims to ignite a crucial conversation within the higher education IT community. As institutions increasingly adopt AI and data-driven approaches, relying solely on demographic data limits our understanding of students. In an ever-diversifying world, our students are unique, and their experiences transcend traditional demographics. Behavioral data offers a holistic view, defying traditional categories and enabling personalized support. We’ll explore practical implications, research findings, and market trends, leaving you with a fresh outlook on data use.
Our diverse panel, featuring a researcher, an administrator, and an industry expert, will share their insights, followed by an audience Q&A session.
Our expert panel:
- Dr. Dionne Curbeam, Chief Information Officer at Coppin State University
- Dr. Jaclyn Ocumpaugh, Associate Director of the Penn Center for Learning Analytics
- Alejandra Acosta, Director of Knowledge Sector at Discourse Analytics
Join us at the Educause Annual Conference for this thought-provoking session. We look forward to expanding horizons, challenging norms, and enhancing student outcomes through the power of behavioral data and mindsets. See you there!
