Good Cop versus Bad Cop: What Will They Make of Learning Analytics?

Date Thursday, Dec 7  Time   –    Room Charlottenburg 2

Learning analytics is about collecting, measuring, analysing and using data related to students’ online behaviour. The focus in conventional learning analytics is often on the “what”; a quantitative measurement of learner performance. This session will make the case for an alternative, supplementary method, which focuses on the “how”; a more qualitative measurement of the learning process of the student. Based on empirical data from online courses, two speakers will engage you with their biased view on learning analytics. All with the aim of increasing our insights into learners’ learning processes.
