Can data help me better understand and support learners?

A UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY INNOVATION WEEK WORKSHOP

24 October 2016

Presented by the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation and the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies.

The emerging learning environments offer unprecedented opportunities to collect data about interactions with learners. Can this data help instructors innovate in their teaching? Can they increase their understanding and support of their students? The area of learning analytics focuses on how data can be used to improve the overall student experience. Although data is being used in other areas such as business or marketing, the uptake in educational institutions is slower than expected. In this hands-on workshop we will explore techniques often used to analyse student-learning data, and explore the process needed to translate such data into actionable knowledge. The activities in the workshop will be divided into the following modules:


  1. Connecting data to questions – Which aspects of a learning experience are suitable to be explore with the help of data? What questions can be answered based on data?

  2. Connecting with learning theory – How can theory guide the design of data-intensive learning experiences?

  3. Data-supported actions – What actions can be derived from the combination of data and educational theories?

At the end of the workshop, attendees should be capable of explaining how data can be used to guide or support personalised student support actions.
