Course-level data, including enrollment and success rates disaggregated by demographic factors, can provide insights into areas needing attention, identify opportunities for developing more inclusive teaching practices, and used to evaluate the effectiveness of innovations. In this interactive webinar, we will present examples of using data to investigate questions related to participation and success of different populations of students. We will then explore, with participants, strategies for addressing issues raised by the data (e.g. enrollment concerns, courses that are barriers for students). We will also share how we have worked with our institutional research offices and maintain student privacy. This data-centered approach can be useful in considering how to attract students to geoscience and help them thrive, particularly those from groups underrepresented in the geosciences.
