The second meeting of Jisc’s learning analytics research group will be held at Keele University in Staffordshire on 24th January.
The aim of this group is to bring together 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.
We’ll be delving further into two of the areas explored at our first meeting at Nottingham Trent University: analytics to enhance the curriculum and to address issues around student mental health and wellbeing.
There have been several events recently which have taken these areas forward and we’ll be reporting back from them. For example we had a productive session in Cardiff recently which pushed forward the area of curriculum analytics.
We’ll also be announcing the learning analytics projects that Jisc will be supporting – and giving participants in the event the chance to suggest enhancements to those projects so they can be of maximum benefit to UK higher and further education.
Please book your free place using the registration form.
The draft agenda is below. Numbers are limited so please register early to ensure a place at the event.
