Supporting Data-Informed Decision-Making at MIT


Data Talks is an MIT-wide workshop series that aims to increase the capacity of staff who are charged with conducting analysis or evaluation. Workshops intend to increase awareness of data resources available and focus on the key elements of the process leading to data-informed decisions, from data collection to interpreting study findings.

This initiative stems from the cross-functional data/survey team, comprised of representatives from the Teaching + Learning Lab, Institutional Research, Registrar’s Office, Admissions, MindHandHeart, Office of the Vice Chancellor, Division of Student Life, Career Advising & Professional Development, Office of the First Year / Office of Experimental LearningStudent Financial Services, and Sloan School of Management.
