Between the Chapters: Learning Analytics

For Between the Chapters episode for Chapter #21 (2014), Laura is joined by Anne-Marie Scott and Dragan Gašević to talk about learning analytics (LA). This conversation outlines a definition of LA, in terms of higher education — for practice, within products in ed tech, for online learning/teaching, and evidence-based research. There are so many interpretations as to what LA is, and we hope this episode unpacks the myths and misconceptions as to what metrics and data within learning and/or measurement science. For LA, it is important to talk about the use, ethics in data collection, and supporting learner agency talk about the use, ethics, and learner agency when examining learning, teaching, and design of both.
