Following on from successful meetings at the Open University and the University of Edinburgh, Jisc is hosting a new group for researchers who wish to stay updated on the latest learning analytics research taking place and pursue opportunities for collaboration.
This event is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union STELA Project KA3 562167-EPP-1-2015-1-BE-EPPKA3-PI-FORWARD.
The first meeting of the group will be hosted by Nottingham Trent University on 26th October and the Nottingham Conference Centre. Participants will have the chance to present their existing learning analytics research findings, details of current projects and future plans.
Please book your free place using the registration form.
We’ll then be delving into the 3 priorities that were identified during a gathering of researchers in Edinburgh in February:
- Student-facing learning analytics solutions
- Student well-being and mental health
- Learning analytics for curriculum enhancement
A further area has been added after discussions since about what people are most interested in:
- Developing the evidence base to support better understanding of the impact of learning analytics
We’ll be looking at how we can develop these areas collaboratively, how Jisc can help institutions with their research efforts, and identifying opportunities for funding and joint publications.
Our aim is to facilitate an informal grouping of researchers who wish to learn from and work jointly with each other to develop aspects of learning analytics to enhance learning, teaching and the student experience.
The draft agenda is below. Numbers are limited so please register early to ensure a place at the event.
