Evidence for enhancement: The Role of Learning Analytics
Rivers Suite, Craiglockhart
Wednesday 18th April, 0930-1230 (lunch included)
Learning analytics refers to the analysis and reporting of data about the progress of learners and the contexts in which learning takes place. Across the sector efforts are being made to explore its potential uses and risks, and how this can inform decisions that will actually benefit students and enhance learning. We would like to invite you to this event which is the start of an institutional conversation around what Learning Analytics means within the context of our own priorities and challenges. Come along and help us frame the pedagogical, technical and governance aspects of a University Learning Analytics service.
The event is facilitated by Information Services, DLTE, and Planning & Business Intelligence, and our focus is on engaging with the breadth of the University. We will be joined by Kevin Mayles, Head of Analytics at The Open University and we will benefit from his insights from leading the implementation of their institutional strategy. Places are limited so register early, or contact Martha Caddell (DLTE) or Stephen Bruce (IS) for event information. There are also further details on the staff intranet of the University’s Learning Analytics project and our participation to the QAA Scotland Enhancement Theme.
