Achieving the Dream’s Postsecondary Data Partnership Courses Are Back!
PDP Users Can Register Now for Free Fall Courses
Achieving the Dream (ATD) is helping Postsecondary Data Partnership (PDP) users get the fall off to a great start with the return of its popular free online PDP courses. The courses are designed for two- and four-year institutional users with PDP dashboards across student services, academics, institutional research/effectiveness, and other areas.
- Accelerator Onboarding Course (Oct. 23–Dec. 8, 2023)
This course prepares participants to complete the nuts and bolts of a comprehensive PDP data submission that will maximize dashboard functionality, inform better decisions, and use data to advance equity. Register by Oct. 15 here.
- Using PDP for Data Discovery & Decision Support Course (Oct. 2, 2023–Nov. 17, 2023)
This course uses intersectional data to explore previously unanswerable questions, identify gaps, assess progress in closing gaps, and leverage the PDP to support decision-making. It is not simply about how to operate the dashboards but, rather, focuses on how to use the metrics in the dashboards to drive change. Register by Sept. 22 here.
