Increasing the impact of learning analytics: from exploration to scalability

Jeudi 17 janvier 2019
Learning Analytics (LA) is concerned with understanding and capturing the learning process to optimize learning opportunities for students. The potential of learning analytics has been recognized, but questions regarding its impact remain. In her talk, Dr Poquet will discuss how the potential impact of learning analytics can be increased. To support this argument, the talk will first review the research published in 2011-2018 LAK conferences and Journal of Learning Analytics to explore how learning analytics has impacted our understanding of learning in theory or practice. The talk will exemplify studies included in the review with a particular focus on learning analytics practices for undergraduate students.  The talk will conclude with some examples of how such initiatives can be taken up systemically, through case studies from universities with different levels of learning analytics maturity.
