Kent State University’s Department of Residence Services is hosting a Google+ PowerPoint presentation that will be streamed live on YouTube, featuring Darlena Jones, Ph.D., director of education and program development at EBI MAP-Works, on Oct. 17 from 10-11:30am. The event, titled “Moving from Data to Knowledge: Using Assessments to Improve Student Success,” will take place in Tri-Towers Studio A, and the university community is invited to attend this presentation.

The presentation will expose faculty and staff to the idea of knowledge management and consist of real data to discuss how to use predictive analytics to narrow a wealth of information into actionable knowledge. It will provide practical examples of assessment-in-action.

“Dr. Darlena Jones will provide an in-depth, comprehensive presentation on assessment that will underscore the importance of why assessment is so critical in the higher education community today,” says Charles Holmes-Hope, assistant director for residence education. “This will allow staff and faculty members to learn more about assessing their data, develop the right questions to get the outcomes we so desire to enhance student success.”

Since arriving at EBI MAP-Works, Jones has led the assessment team by developing more than 50 national benchmarking assessments. She also is an accomplished presenter, speaker, leader and educator, and has delivered more than 200 presentations and workshops at international conferences focused on assessment strategies, program improvement and student success.

EBI MAP-Works empowers higher education professionals with the platforms, programs, information and support they need to continuously improve the quality of the college student experience.

The event will be streamed live on Charles Holmes-Hope’s YouTube Channel. Those who are attending are asked to arrive 10 minutes early.
