Fellowship on Learning Analytics – Spring 2020

Learning analytics (LA) tools offer data that can contribute to improving teaching and learning. Instructor voices are instrumental in providing input into the evaluation of potential new LA tools for UW-Madison. The spring 2020 Fellowship on Learning Analytics will develop and apply a process to evaluate and choose learning analytics tools based on pedagogical needs, and in alignment with UW-Madison’s goals.

The Fellowship on Learning Analytics, sponsored by DoIT Academic Technology, will focus on the following outcomes:

  • Identify questions you might have about your students, your course or your teaching that LA approaches can help answer.
  • Identify data literacy needs applicable for using learning analytics tools.
  • Prototype and refine a pedagogical framework for evaluating LA tools.
  • Evaluate LA tools currently available or under consideration for campus implementation.
  • Develop communication strategies to engage with colleagues and represent instructional needs relevant to learning analytics in a course or program.
