The University of Edinburgh hosted the latest meeting of the Jisc Learning Analytics Network last week. I gave a short presentation highlighting some of the challenges we are facing here at GCU in terms of getting work around learning analytics off the ground.
We are struggling a bit in terms of getting time and support to move forward, however the Jisc Effective Analytics solution could potentially be a very timely stepping stone for us in this respect. I’m hoping we will be able to bid to be one of the case studies for this work.
All the presentations were very informative, The University of Edinburgh are doing some great work in this area. Once again showing what a difference investment and clear leadership around online learning and teaching, not just infrastructure can make. It’s so refreshing to hear about work that is not obsessed with retention, or as Wilma Alexander called it the “deficit model”.
If you are a GCU member of staff and are interested in developing approaches to learning analytics, or just finding our more about it, please get in touch with us in the Blended Learning Team in LEAD.
Below is my presentation.
