TITLE: Translating Educational Data into Meaningful Practices: Insights from the field of Learning Analytics
WHEN: Thursday 25 November, 12:00-13:00
Meeting ID: 631 2552 9816
Since the last decade, higher education has moved online and institutions have had access to more student data than ever before. A proactive move before the recent pandemic where online and virtual learning environments had functioned as primarily digital repositories of educational resources, employing student data to improve learning experiences and environments was disseminated in 2011, so-called Learning Analytics. For 11 years, the emerging of Learning Analytics has evolved into a mature research field and practice.
In this talk, I will share with you some facts about the field in 4Ws, Where it originates from? What theories have influenced the field? How does it translate students’ data into useful practices (empirical evidence)? and What concerns have been raised through such usage?
