6 Ways to Use Learning Analytics: A Functional Taxonomy

September 18, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Presented by Sara Hagen & Sarah Traynor

Why are people using learning analytics? What questions can learning analytics answer to help improve teaching and learning? What does learning analytics look like in actual courses?

Join us for an interactive session with Sara Hagen from the Collaborative for Engineering Education & Training (CEETE) and Sarah Traynor, from the School of Medicine and Public Health to discuss six learning analytics approaches. They will present a case study and share a functional taxonomy that helps to explain applied learning analytics, using numerous examples.

This taxonomy was explored and adapted by the Blended Learning Fellowship on Evidence-Based Teaching during spring semester, 2018.

This is part of a series of learning analytics events co-sponsored by the Educational Innovation (EI) Initiative and DoIT Academic Technology. To learn more about upcoming events, join our learning analytics listserv by emailing If you have questions, please email or call 265.0240.
