Food for Thought: Demystifying University league tables

Posted by rmt22 at May 10, 2016 04:55 PM |
The Food for Thought sessions are a series of lunchtime talks aiming to get staff thinking about areas of the University that they may not be familiar with, and shed light on some of our more complex areas.

League tables are one of the key ways that students, particularly international students, choose which university to study at. But their workings are opaque at best.

In this lunchtime session, Brendan Fawcett and Lisa Cunningham from our Planning Office will demonstrate the interactive information dashboard that they use to understand performance. The session will also introduce the different methodologies used by the three key domestic league tables at both the University and subject level and will explain where the data comes from.

Book your place at the talk, which takes place on Tuesday 17 May between 12.30 and 1.30pm in Ken Edwards Ground Floor Lecture theatre 3, and then get involved in the post-event discussion on Yammer.

Food For Thought is a monthly lunchtime talk, open to all staff. The talks are an opportunity for you to come and hear about a range of topics from across the institution, broaden your own knowledge and meet colleagues from around the University.
