A new subscription to the Education Advisory Board (EAB) IT Forum is offering higher education-specific information technology resources to UW students, faculty and staff. For no individual charge, users with a UW NetID can access the service for white papers, webinars, peer articles and other research resources, as well as for in-person consultation, in topic areas such as data governance, measures and metrics, analytics, and student success.
“EAB is an excellent resource, with a long history of specializing in IT for higher education,” said Anja Canfield-Budde, Director of Enterprise Data & Analytics (EDA). “With their deep expertise, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel to solve institutional IT challenges. I wholeheartedly recommend their resources.”
The EAB is made up of 650-plus researchers, consultants and technologists, serving over 1,000 colleges and universities across North America. Earlier this year, UW-IT data leaders provided input to EAB on the paper, A Common Currency: Achieving Excellence in Data Governance and Adoption of Analytics. Read the paper (PDF) on the UW-IT intranet.
“As we continue to grow our ‘data culture’ at the University, we can rely on EAB for expert advice and collaboration opportunities,” said Canfield-Budde.
