This dissertation is about a data team in a Teacher Education College in the Netherlands, and how a data team can contribute to de development of data skills, a more positive attitude towards data use and the use of data in practice. In order to study the research question, How does a data team contribute to the development of teacher educators’ ability to use data to improve their educational practice?, four studies were carried out. After and introduction, the dissertation consists of four studies. The first study deals with data use by teacher educators and, in particular, with the way in which future teachers learn how to use data, the way in which data are used by the teacher educators themselves, and which factors influence data use. The second study focuses on the way in which a data team within a teacher education college can provide a context for learning how to use data. The third study focuses on the factors influencing the depth of inquiry of the data team conversations. And finally, the fourth study deals with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes developed through data team participation and to what extent the data team members implement data use in their educational practice. The dissertation closes with an overview of the outcomes of these four studies and discusses the outcomes of these four studies, as well as the way in which the research was designed, and provides recommendations regarding educational practice, policy, and research.
