Demystifying The Arcane World of Learning Analytics:
Using Data from the Tools You Use Every Day to Design More Effective Learning Experiences

Time: 12:30-1:30pm
Location: LK130
Speakers: Pauline Becker, Britt Carr, Sharon F. Chen, Michael McAuliffe, Erfan Mojaddam, Irina Russell, Darren Salmi, Jessica Whittemore

The  EdTech tools you use every day collect data that can be used to inform your teaching. Learning analytics is “the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning  and the environments in which it occurs” (Wikipedia). To many, learning analytics remains an arcane science without a concrete sense of immediate applicability. In this panel, faculty and staff will show current examples of how learning data from Canvas, Ilios, Tableau, Nearpod, Mediasite, and other tools are being used to help design more effective learning experiences. We’ll also show our vision for tools in development and discuss common barriers to use and student privacy concerns.
