What are learning analytics and how can I use them to facilitate student learning?

Joel Howell and Association Professor Lynne Roberts

Are learning analytics just another data set the University wants you to manage, or can it be a positive force to inform educational practice? Curtin University is currently exploring learning analytics and the creation of ‘dashboards’ of key data for both students and staff.

This presentation will provide an introduction to learning analytics, explore some of the questions that big data generates for both students and staff, and provide insight into the current state of play at Curtin. Additionally, Joel and Lynne will provide an overview of their research into learning analytics. The presentation will be interactive and aims to generate a conversation in the Faculty of Health Sciences about what kinds of data is required to facilitate student learning.

Information on how to register will be forthcoming. For more information contact Helen Flavell.
