In this virtual workshop, Jason McKnight (Assistant Director of MindHandHeart) and Kate Doria (Assistant Director of Institutional Research) introduced MIT’s Pulse Survey Project and describe 3 approaches for exploring the data. Participants were given the general background about the project before diving deeper into some of the findings and outcomes.

This event marked the beginning of the AY20-21 Data Talks workshop series, organized by TLL’s Melissa Barnett and Ryan MacDowell in collaboration with offices across MIT.
