The Higher Education Commission is very pleased to officially call for evidence for its inquiry into data and higher education.

In this inquiry, the Commission will firstly assess current practice and innovation in higher education, looking at how institutions use data and technology today. It will then look at the future of higher education in a data-driven world, identifying the possibilities for the sector and making recommendations for where we could and should be in 5 - 10 years.

This will be a significant agenda setting piece that we hope will shape the debate around the future of higher education and influence policy and practice in the coming years.

Please use the questions provided in the attached document to frame your response to the call for evidence, but do not feel restricted by or compelled to answer every question. The Commission welcomes all types of evidence, from data including data analysis or internal studies your organisation has carried out, and personal or organisational views on these issues. Submissions of evidence will not be published and the Commission will seek your permission before quoting from evidence submissions in our final report.

The Commission’s secretariat will also be conducting informal interviews to inform the inquiry – please get in touch if you would like to discuss the topic in more detail.

The Commission has extended the deadline for evidence submissions to Friday 9 October. Evidence can be submitted to xanthe.shacklock@policyconnect.org.uk. For more information about the Commission or the inquiry please contact Xanthe Shacklock on 020 7202 8583.

The inquiry is generously supported by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and the Tec Trust Fund.
