Supporting Students While Ethically Leveraging Data:
The Appropriate Use of Data for Learning Analytics Guiding Principles
Presented by: Beth Martin & Brian Yandell
Learning analytics practices continue to increase on campus – both centrally and locally. How does that affect instructors, instructional staff and students? Are you using learning analytics practices in your teaching? What data are you accessing that might help you answer questions you have about your course, your students and your teaching? Do you have concerns about the ethical use of student data? Beyond FERPA, what other considerations do you need to keep in mind in terms of handling student data?
Beth Martin (School of Pharmacy) and Brian Yandell (Wisconsin Institutes of Discovery) were on the ad-hoc Learning Analytics Data Use Subcommittee (LADUS), which was charged to establish guidelines for the use of data for learning analytics as an educational practice. Come find out more about these guidelines, which will serve as a foundation for future policy.
