Using performance indicators to assess institutional effectiveness in ELT – Vinicius Nobre

Abstract: In this webinar, we are going to look at the relevance of performance indicators in the decision-making process of ELT managers. We will start by discussing what makes a good performance indicator and the contexts in which they can be used. We will move on to look at the resistance that a manager can anticipate in the implementation process and how to benefit from the information gathered to enhance academic and overall performance.
