Building Your Data Confidence
In an era of data-driven decision making, what does it really mean to strategically use data to support your work? Join Kim Kiesewetter of WiLS for a two-part series on research and data specifically tailored to library workers.
Part 1: By March 15, watch an archived one-hour webinar and read two reports on the foundations of research and data.
Part 2: On Tuesday, March 16, from 9:00 AM - noon, participants will join together for an interactive virtual workshop to dig in and explore your library's "data ecosystem.” The workshop begins with participants finding and using library data and ends with building together a scenario that illustrates how to apply data locally.
Application is required. Due by 5:00 PM, Wednesday, February 3, 2021
No prior data knowledge is required. There is no cost to applicants chosen to participate in the training.
From the Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) Team:
"This free webinar series, which is open to anyone (not just RIPL alums), features five sessions from the 2020 event, remade into 90-minute live webinars and 60-minute follow-up recorded lessons for those who want to dive deeper into the topics. So, if you missed one of these sessions in December, now is your opportunity to take it in a live setting.
Similar to the RIPL 2020 event, these will NOT be webinars where you listen to a talking head the whole time; instead, please come ready to participate in a variety of interactive learning activities, some of which will occur in small groups in breakout rooms.
Here is the schedule – go to https://ripl.lrs.org/ripl-data-boot-camp/ to learn more about each webinar and register:
