How Far Have We Traveled? Evidence that Learning Analytics Improves Student Success
Indiana University is pleased to invite you to its 5th annual International Learning Analytics Summit. Led by the Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS), the summit is free to attend. The purpose of the summit is to cultivate a knowledge building community with a shared interest in furthering faculty engagement with the widespread, sustained use of learning analytics.
The summit is the meeting place for those of us who believe that faculty involvement with the use of learning analytics is critical to the establishment of a data-guided culture within higher education. With their expert knowledge about their students, disciplines, courses, and programs, instructors of all ranks are in the best position to take advantage of the new insights learning analytics can provide and make changes based upon those new insights. This can provide all higher education stakeholders with a better understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and choices students face as they travel on their individual pathways toward receiving a college degree.
Through keynote talks, presentations, and working sessions, we will address both the opportunities and barriers of providing learning analytics, data dashboards and predictive models to faculty of all ranks at all institutions of higher learning.
This year’s summit theme is How Far Have We Traveled?Evidence that Learning Analytics Improves Student Success. This theme will shape conversations about how far the field of Learning Analytics (LA) has progressed in just the past decade or so. We anticipate that speakers and presenters will address LA projects and initiatives that have moved the needle on student development, retention, and graduation, as well as the formative and summative assessments of teaching and learning.
