Study Abroad Workshop - Reporting

Knowing where you’ve been is important when you want to know where to go next. When trying to create or change international initiatives, the key to setting attainable goals lies in collecting the right information and then knowing how to analyze it. The TDS Reporting Workshop is a 4 hour intermediate-level workshop designed for clients who specialize in study abroad, already have a basic understanding of querying and reporting in TDS, and who want to dive deeper into analyzing their data.

This workshop will be a mixture of lecture, demonstration, discussion, and hands-on development. Terra Dotta staff will review and demonstrate TDS advanced queries and reporting functions, while a Terra Dotta client will lead a discussion of practical examples of using TDS data to tell your story.

Participants should bring their laptop and be ready to actively work on their own production site. This is a hands-on workshop!
