June 26-27, 2012
The objective of this workshop was to review the effect of using data in influencing management of higher education institutions as opposed to basing decisions on precedent and norms which could be outdated and subjective. The workshop gave opportunity for the introduction of the notion of a national graduate survey at discursive level and brainstorm on the next phase of implementation. From the four presentations to initiate discussion, it was noted that while the management of universities appreciated graduate surveys, limited resources if any are allocated to their implantation. The workshop was targeted to mid-level management in position of deans and heads of department from six public Kenyan universities. Eight participants attended the workshop.
