Open Education programs of all sizes and contexts regularly require quantitative and qualitative data collection, analysis, and reporting in order to demonstrate their impact. This imperative goes far beyond cost savings; programs often measure (1) faculty and student opinions, (2) student enrollment, persistence, and performance, (3) the level of subject-area or departmental participation, (4) the success of a new outreach or professional development activity, (5) educational equity, and much more. In an emerging field, integrity, reproducibility, and clarity in open education data collection and reporting is crucial to a program’s success and sustainability. Moreover, our data enables us to widely share our stories in order to celebrate champions and draw attention to issues that deeply affect students.

This panel of Open Education leaders from institutions, state systems, and a global network will talk briefly about their past experiences in dealing with data, their current plans and strategies in collecting and managing data, and what the future of Open Education data could, or should, look like. Ending with a 25-minute Discovery-Action-Dialogue microsession from Liberating Structures through a collaborative Google Doc, the panel aims to balance panelists’ input with the experiences and knowledge of attendees.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify common practices in Open Education data management
  • Detect barriers to success in data collection and reporting
  • Understand new ways of approaching Open Education data, both current and prospective
