Playboy Models, Statistical Models, Metrics, Rubrics, and Data-Driven Education Reform: The Crisis of Leadership in Higher Education and What it Means for the Arts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Worshipping at the altar of “the data” is something I see every day. The arts, always under siege for a variety of reasons, are particularly vulnerable in regimes of bottom-line thinking. We don’t really make anything after all, so what good must we be? If the only information that matters comes in the form of numbers on a spreadsheet, how do we quantify creativity, collaboration, and communal experience? How do we argue it matters at all? And there's a new form of manager/executive/ leader emerging from this way of thinking. This new type of leader has no tools at his/her disposal other than numeric ones. All must be reimagined and redefined by the simple, clear-cut, dispassionate use of the numbers. In a time when the only things that count are what you can count, what are we to do?
