Data-informed Stories, Transformational Journeys: Indiana University’s 3rd Annual Learning Analytics Summit
“No one ever made a decision because of a number. They need a story.”
--Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2002
For those of us dedicated to transforming teaching, learning, and student success in higher education, Kahneman’s words certainly ring true, especially when we work with learning analytics. We need compelling stories to accompany our data analyses. Stories that inspire critical reflection about our students and their performance. Stories about the inequities in our college classrooms. Stories that encourage faculty to take action. And yes, stories that will transform the teaching cultures in our programs and departments.
Come and share your stories about how faculty are engaged with learning analytics at your school. Hear what stories others have to tell. Leave with ideas and action plans to take back home. Like past years, the summit will include keynote speakers, working groups, invited guest speakers, and multiple breakout sessions. The breakouts will provide opportunities for sharing work in both 20-minute sessions and shorter lightning round presentations.
This year's summit is virtual, and all events will be live, recorded, and available for four months after the summit.
