“Can we improve student engagement through the use of learning analytics?” Dublin e-Learning Summer School (20th June 2019)

I had the pleasure of running a workshop at the 17th Dublin eLearning Summer School “Developing all learners: Big Data in Higher Education”. My session followed on from some really interesting short sessions about different learning analytics practices. I love the constant state of experimentation we have in this field.

My essential thesis is that the field of learning analytics is hitting some serious challenges: the early promise of the technology isn’t living up to expectations. I feel this is primarily because the technology needs to be far more completely integrated into institutions’ learning, teaching and support practices and doing so isn’t easy.
