The summer meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists group has the theme 'Learning Analytics: Using data to improve the learner experience'.
The data we collect from learners can be really powerful in helping us to shape and improve learning and educational institutions and organisations are pushing to use learner data more effectively. But, how can we use this data most effectively? How much can this really tell us about the learner experience? What are its limitations? What are the ethical implications of collecting and using this data? How should the introduction of the GDPR on 25 May 2018 influence how we store and manage this data?
During the event we hope to explore these questions and more, discussing how learner data, big and small, can be used to help us improve learning and teaching. Whether it is data from a single activity which helps us to focus teaching resources and respond to the student voice or on a larger scale, where data across platforms comes together to aid retention and achievement, data becomes a valuable asset for both the tutor and learner.
