Scaling up learning analytics aimed at the Higher Education sector

Wednesday 20 January 16:30 - 17:00 at the Bett show

The session led by LACE partner Dr Doug Clow from the Open University will address the difficult question of moving beyond small-scale pilots to seriously use data to improve student learning. This interactive workshop will provide tools and frameworks to help participants analyse what else is needed, building on experiences of successful large-scale learning analytics activities.

Towards a Manifesto for Data Ownership

by Kirsty Kitto

"We need to create data pathways. In a data ownership model, a person should be able to take their learning data with them for life, and it needs to make sense throughout their life. We owe this to our students, as it would allow them to make use of their own learning data in ways that we cannot even envision yet."

Recently added is a Projects category to collect activities in learning analytics that are interesting to the community, but not directly evidence for or against the propositions.

Learning Analytics in the Norwegian and Danish school system

by Jan Hylen

Schools are, compared to higher education, very dependent on initiatives from governments and governmental agencies. In the near future there will not be any developments regarding the use of learning analytics in schools unless there are national initiatives regarding standards, funding and knowledge sharing. In order to mirror the developments in Europe regarding learning analytics in schools we have asked a number of countries to share their plans and experiences for the coming years, starting with feedbacks from Norway and Denmark.

Join us as an Associate Partner

LACE Associate Partners work with us in various ways, ranging from joining the discussion and writing blog posts to contributing evidence about learning analytics or collaborating on a White Paper.

We are encouraging individuals and organisations to join us.
