Description:
Workshop ???Efficiency in Education and the use of big data??
Location:
Leuven, Faculty of Economics and Business, Naamsestraat 69, Belgium
Subject:
This workshop aims to investigate and connect two related issues: - Efficiency in education: We welcome papers that examine innovative methodologies and/or applications in the field of efficiency in education. Obtaining more efficiency and productivity can be the mean for devoting resources to the quality of activities and outputs, improving the satisfaction of citizens who receive the services, and guaranteeing more effectiveness and equity for the public sector as a whole. - The use of big data: The traditional administrative datasets are today ???big?? in the sense that the single organizations, in many sectors, periodically fill very detailed questionnaires and databases with not only structural and ???hard?? information, but also with soft data about managerial practices, quality of outputs and inputs, etc. We welcome papers that propose methodological advancements or empirical applications for measuring the efficiency of public organisations?? activities and outputs, taking advantage of the availability of big data.
