Know your Data Workshop Series

The second phase of the Siyaphumelela (We Succeed) programme was launched in August 2020. Saide continues to act as a backbone organization for a network of 14 universities, working together to share experiences and innovative initiatives for improving student success at scale. One such initiative is a Know Your Data Workshop Series held between August to October 2020.

The Know your Data online workshop series provided an orientation to universities that joined the Network in 2020. In particular, its purpose was to fosters an approach to the understanding and use of the various categories of data that assist universities to better track and support their students.
