For the past year now, I’ve been contemplating running a community analytics course (I’ll probably change the name before @Bas_van_Leeuwen hits me with a hammer).
Generally speaking, I think we do a terrible job with community analytics today. We have bad tools, use them badly, and tend not to understand the results we get anyway. I suspect there is a big opportunity here.
However, it’s also pretty technical, needs a decent grasp of some core theories, and it’s going to require more time than our standard courses.
So a few questions here:
Do you think this kind of course is a good idea? (i.e. would you be interested in taking it? )
What specific outcomes would you love to see? What would be a game-changer for you?
What tools/techniques would you most like to learn?
What would else be useful to know?
Any help would be warmly appreciated.
