Workshop | Tuesday, May 7 at 10:45 am – 12:00 pm | LIB 312

Learning Analytics is a rapidly emerging field centred around data-driven decisions to improve teaching and learning. Information from learning data can come from any of the tools used in a particular classroom and this information enables instructors to assess their own teaching methods. Analytics can also surface specific areas of challenges and successes for students. In this session we will review current research and provide an overview of the UBC Learning Analytics innovation pilot. We will also focus on identifying opportunities and areas in which learning analytics can support instructors in improving teaching, learning, and engagement in your courses.
