3 Barriers to Data Management in Higher Education Programs
Data is one of the most valuable assets any higher education program has today. Unfortunately, many schools are underutilizing this resource because their systems don’t play nice with each other, they’re not able to collect enough data to make it valuable, and they’re not sure how to ensure everything is secure.
Fortunately, these barriers are being knocked down as technology solutions improve. Read on to learn more about three of the most common barriers to data management and how programs are overcoming them.
Barrier 1: Using Data
Barrier 2: Trustworthy Data
Barrier 3: Making Inputs Easy
Solution: Program Management Software for Field Education and Accreditation
There is one solution that answers many of these common challenges programs face: program management software that simplifies internships and assessment in support of accreditation. For instance, Tevera makes field education as well as accreditation and assessment easier by storing all of a program’s related data securely and making it easy to use.
Embracing new technology can eliminate redundancies, speed up inefficiencies, and create more value for all stakeholders by making the data more easily accessible.
Data management is crucial to the future success of any higher ed program. However, it’s an enormous challenge, especially if you’ve been using outdated technologies up until now. Fortunately, software developers are making new technologies easier and easier to use, making the onboarding process a smooth and painless experience.
It’s also crucial to choose a software that speaks your program’s language. If the tool doesn’t speak the language of the helping professions, like counselor education and social work, you run the risk of doing double work to decode the data that comes out of the system. Using a system that is aligned to the specifics of your industry will save you time and add value to your data.
