Find out why Learning Analytics is a potential Game Changer. Join us at the CiTEL Learning Analytics Symposium (31 May and 1 June 2019) where you will hear from leaders in the field of learning analytics from across the secondary and tertiary sectors who will share cutting edge research and future directions for educational analytics.
Keynote Highlight with Prof. Shane Dawson
“Learning Analytics – Making Sense of Muddy Waters
The so-called digital revolution has vastly impacted upon and changed how industries such as publishing, banking, travel, media and communications, and retail operate…Education is no exception. The adoption of learning technologies, personal and mobile devices provides for new modes of education delivery and increased opportunities for formal and informal collaborations. As teachers and students engage more with these tools we are seeing a parallel rise in research associated with learning analytics, data mining, and learning sciences. Learning analytics in particular has had strong resonance in the education sector (including teachers, students, policy-makers and administrators). As such, the field has been frequently touted as a potential ‘game changer’ for education for its capacity to provide new insights into student learning progress.”
Other Symposium Program Highlights include insights into whole-school implementation of data analytics, using NAPLAN and other data to enhance student learning, and student use of learning analytics Dashboards. Round table sharing-practice discussions will create the opportunity for classroom practitioners and learning leaders to share ideas, ask questions and to explore the current use of educational analytics in the secondary sector.
