Indiana University is pleased to invite you to its 3rd annual Learning Analytics Summit. Led by the Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS) this year’s summit theme is From Insight to Action. The purpose of the summit is to cultivate a knowledge building community with a shared interest in in furthering faculty engagement with the widespread, sustained use of learning analytics.
This year’s summit theme will provide a forum for discourse about the changes, or anticipated changes that faculty, programs, and schools are making to further student success through the thoughtful application of learning analytics.
Our summit is premised on the idea 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 in many ways, they are also the ones most capable of making 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 at institutions of higher learning.
