Welcome to the February 2017 edition of the AAIR Newsletter.
The AAIR website is in the process of being redesigned and we invite our members to take this short survey about the monthly newsletter and your information needs as a member.
Here are your editors’ picks of some of the most noteworthy articles and reports this month:
Because we are all institutional researchers, you might find yourself resonating with what’s included in the Duties and Functions of Institutional Research list developed by our US counterpart, the Association of Institutional Research (AIR).
For fellow planners, what the Inside Higher Ed has put forward in their article, Hope and Denial are Not Strategies may ring uickuite true for you as well.
Using student surveys as a measure of quality always sparks a good conversation. Another topic that always spark good conversations is of course, world university
rankings. Check out the series of special reports on rankings by University World News.
It seems there is just no escaping the news on Donald Trump these days. From travel ban to the brand new order to freezing student exchange and abolishing the Environmental Protection Agency, Trump was everywhere. Speculation continues as the world watches and ponders the future of higher education in the USA.
And of course, lots of interesting initiatives are always happening in the learning analytics, online learning, business intelligence and big data spaces. Take for example, the development of a first online-only postgraduate university in Africa and increasingly, the expectation that technology should simply be “anytime, anywhere”.
