COVID-19 Update: Due to closures, the 2020 Data Institute was suspended at Spring Break. When a plan to reopen facilities is established, we will resume the 2020 cohort and allow the current participants to complete their research projects. If remote working is extended through the Fall semester, then we will regroup the program and complete using a remote workshop model. At this time we do not have plans to recruit a 2021 cohort for this Fall.
The Data Institute is a professional development program for full-time faculty and staff of Lone Star College.
The purpose of the Institute is to enhance the data research and analytics knowledge and skills of Lone Star College faculty and staff through a rigorous, project-based curriculum. The 12-session program is offered each year starting in the Fall and participants are selected through a competitive application process.
The primary goals of the Institute are to:
Enhance participants' research and analytics knowledge and skills.
Enhance familiarity with IRís services, data sources, and data tools.
Build a cohort of trained researchers to lead projects and assist college decision-makers.
Increase the quantity and quality of research at Lone Star College.
Have participants complete a simple, insightful research study from problem definition through communication of results including, research design, data collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation.
