NEW webinar series ‘Data Storytelling’ with Selena Fisk

05/07/22

This two-part webinar series, hosted by Dr Selena Fisk, is for middle and senior leaders who are seeking to build the data- and evidence-informed culture in their school. The effective use of data in schools requires three key components: data literacy, data visualisation, and data storytelling, and through these sessions, participants will consider how they build their own skills in all three areas and the skills of others. Participants will also reflect on the ways that professional learning, teacher collaboration, peer learning, and action research can be authentically embedded in their school to promote data-informed practice.
