Description: The integration of innovative technologies in higher education has brought about significant changes in teaching and learning methodologies. Among these technologies, big data analytics has gained prominence due to its potential to improve the quality of education. Underpinned by the Technology-Organization-Environment (TOE) framework, I will describe the technological, organizational, and environmental factors that influence the readiness and use of big data analytics in higher education institutions. I will share the results of interviews with individuals from higher education institutions about the potential barriers and challenges that institutions face in successfully implementing big data initiatives. Finally, I will describe how the findings of this study will contribute to the literature and inform practice by addressing the gap in empirical evidence in the context of Canadian higher education.
