Here’s the final agenda for the network event at Nottingham Trent University.  In the morning we’re looking at the learning analytics micro-project ideas and will decide on which ones to fund.

We then have a live link-up with one of the World’s leading experts in learning analytics, previously at California State University and now Blackboard’s Director for Platform Analytics and Research, Dr John Whitmer.
