learning analytics, SLATE, community of practice


This Community of Practice presentation explores some of the foundational concepts related to learning analytics. We discuss how the analysis of learner data can be used to help instructors take a proactive approach to learner assessment, feedback, and guidance; an approach that aligns and inspires data-informed decision-making, informing future pedagogical action and intervention in the spirit of continuous enhancement. This scholarly presentation defines Learning Analytics; identifies the tools available in SLATE that produce actionable learner data; and discusses the ethical implications of measurement, collection, analysis, and reporting of data about learners.
