Strategically driving away from dismal graduate employability through university data analytics
Date of this Version
Extract: Currently in higher education, it is like there are two newly constructed parallel roads allowing us to move from Point A to Point B, only there is a berm between them. They would be so much more powerful and strategic if they were converged to a single road with two lanes. One of those roads is that of data analytics and the other is that of student employability activity. They are currently extending in the same direction, but seldom converging. We are currently at Point A where we do not know enough about our students and their learning activities and our graduates are suffering the lowest employment outcomes in twenty years. A well-constructed two-lane road of data analytics and strategic employability supports can get us to Point B with a quality student experience and heightened graduate outcomes.
