The 12th UK Learning Analytics Network meeting is being hosted by the University of Greenwich on Thursday 23rd November 2017.
Our theme this time is around data for learning analytics: preparing your data sources, thinking about the implications of the forthcoming European GDPR legislation, and understanding how predictive modelling on the data works.
Prof David Maguire, VC of Greenwich and Chair of Jisc will introduce the day. We’ll have updates from Jisc colleagues on the Jisc Effective Learning Analytics project, a session on GDPR and consent from Andrew Cormack, and a panel session on “getting your data right for learning analytics”. Also, Kerr Gardner will introduce an interesting new development: extracting data from Turnitin for learning analytics.
Our final session is an update on Greenwich’s own learning analytics project which will provide useful guidance for other institutions.
As usual there’ll be plenty of opportunity for networking with people from elsewhere who are implementing learning analytics.
You’re advised to book early as there are limited places available and the event is likely to be oversubscribed.
