ASPECTS 8: Learning Analytics [TG1/ASPECTS8_Analytics]
Date(s) - 02/05/2019
3:45 pm - 6:00 pm
This workshop is part of the cpd25 Aspects programme, aimed at library staff looking to acquire additional skills and knowledge or staff working towards Chartership.
Learning analytics is an emerging area of interest in Higher Education. Universities collect a large amount of data on students and can use it to improve the student academic experience, address wellbeing issues and improve retention levels. It can be used by academic staff to provide more personalised learning experiences and it can be used by students to monitor their own academic performance. However, there are questions about ethics and data security that need to be addressed. Universities are making early moves into working with learning analytics and at this event, speakers from City, University of London and UCL will discuss current projects they are working on. We will also hear from a recent graduate from the Library School at City, whose dissertation investigated how library data (library management systems, e-resource systems and LibApps) could be combined to gain greater insights into user behaviour.
