Learning Analytics: understand learning and support the learner
Mathieu d'Aquin lecture, Wednesday 2nd May 1300-1400
G011 Hardiman Research Building
In this presentation, organised by the University’s Research Data Working Group, Mathieu d'Aquin will explore the growing area of learning analytics: the application of data analytics approaches to data from learning activities.
The presentation will look at typical applications, for example, to identify students at risk and find ways to support them better.
Mathieu will also describe more complex examples from the AFEL (Analytics for Everyday Learning) EU project, which looks at personal learning analytics for online, self-directed learning.
