The 2011 Open Doors data will be released by IIE this coming Monday, November 14th. I attended the release last year at the National Press Club and it was a great experience. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend this year but I will be checking out the data and posting some thoughts to IHEC Blog.
When I first visit the Open Doors website I first turn to the student profile data within the study abroad section. I'm interested in seeing what progress, if any, has been made in changing the face of the U.S. study abroad population. To be sure, I spend a lot of time sifting through the data and crunch some of the numbers to provide additional insight not covered by IIE Research and Program Evaluation Services staff.
Where do you first turn when you check out Open Doors data?
