University Technology Leader of the Year
Jenny Paulsen is a deputy chief information officer at the University of South Florida. Paulsen recognizes that being a savvy analytic consumer requires data literacy. She partnered with ASR Analytics to develop a data literacy program that inspires and enables self-service analytics and expands data expertise at USF. The team created a comprehensive program for beginner through advanced capacities, deploying courses in an online interactive platform. Users receive immediate feedback on their progress and badges for mastery, and work with real data examples to reinforce learning. Improved data literacy at USF reduces reliance on IT for reporting and promotes effective decision making in support of student and institutional success.
