This year we are focusing on ‘enhancing data certainty’ and on the event’s programme page, you’ll see sessions that will provide informative debate and significant value.
The two-day conference is a great opportunity to discuss the topical issues around data and its use in shaping the future of education. We have a fantastic line-up of sessions hosted by sector experts from the universities of Huddersfield, Derby, Bath, Westminster, Durham, Manchester, BPP, The Open University, South Wales and more. We also have some excellent keynote speakers which include:

Data Matters is aimed at data professionals, higher education practitioners and professional services staff working in areas such as strategic planning, academia, student experience, careers and quality.
It is also a CPD accredited event, which means you can add the learning time towards your individual continuing professional development goals. There will also be lots of opportunities to network online and make valuable connections with your community.
We at Jisc are hosting this event in partnership with HESA and QAA, gathering the know-how of the UK’s higher education data, quality and digital experts.
