Target Audience: Students
This is a one-hour workshop to meet with external consultants to discuss the use of learning analytics at Strathclyde.
More details about the project can be found here.
"Learning analytics" is a new term referring to the use of data to help students improve their learning. By analysing data from students' activity on Myplace, the use of library resources and other sources of information, there is the potential for personalised support to be provided to students . And by finding patterns in the data, the University can better understand and optimise the teaching and Â learning environment and identify interventions and behaviours that help students to do well.
This is a new area with exciting possibilities, but there are tricky issues to consider, such as the ethics of using data about students' online activity.
The University of Strathclyde is currently involved in a project to understand how learning analytics might be useful here. We are looking to get feedback from students on the opportunities and challenges for this work.
