Using data to promote student engagement

7 June 2017

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

The increasing availability of data about the interactions that occur in a technology-mediated learning experience offers the opportunity to explore new ways to support students. However, having a comprehensive set of data points is far removed from effective support actions. Learning is influenced by a large variety of factors and variables. Research areas such as learning analytics need to take into account theoretical as well as contextual factors to achieve improvements on a learning experience. In this talk we will explore how this connection can be established and discuss current research initiatives in this space.
