Jisc’s next learning analytics network meeting is in Newcastle at Northumbria on 19th September 2018. These popular events comprise a range of presentations and discussion sessions – and an opportunity to network with colleagues involved in learning analytics projects at other institutions.
The theme for this meeting is “measuring impact”, we hear from the work that Northumbria have done with their learning analytics pilot project and evaluation and their new Educational Analytics project which will begin this academic year. Carly Foster will discuss how they measured the impact to make changes to the way they are implementing analytics processes at Northumbria.
Kevin Mayles from The Open University has been journeying through learning analytics implementation over the past five years. His presentation will outline lessons learned during this process, what has worked and what has not. The presentation will include audience participation via interactive polling – bring a device (laptop, tablet or phone) to participate.
We will have a demo of the Excelsoft solution from Ramnik Singh who will explain how they’ve been using this with HE.
In addition Civitas Learning will be running some interactive workshops on Data readiness, Nudging and Interventions. So all in all we are going to be treated to a highly interactive and engaging programme and we’ll hope to see you there.
The agenda is below. Please register early to ensure a place at the event.
