Learning analytics have the potential to help us to identify and make sense of patterns in educational data in order to enhance our teaching, our learning, and the student experience. Since emerging as a distinct field in 2011, learning analytics has grown rapidly. Institutions around the world are already developing and deploying these new tools. In order to use analytics effectively, teachers need to take time to reflect on their aims and relevant skillsets. What does enhancement mean in different contexts, and how can analytics be used to help achieve that goal? In order to use these tools effectively, one of the things we need to do is to look into the future and consider the changes on the horizon. In her talk, Rebecca will talk about current developments in learning analytics. She will also introduce ‘Analytics in Action’ – a framework that can be used to introduce analytics to support enhancement – and will consider its implications from a teaching perspective.
