LAHE-7003 - Applying Learning Analytics in Higher Education

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 8

This course will expose the student to use and application of learning analytics in a very specific, micro level approach. This course will cite and discuss the historical application of learning analytics, from the early application of learning analytics in the SIGNAL studies by Purdue in 2006 to more recent applications going on throughout the country. Students will be exposed to the role of technology and learning analytics on specific student outcomes like retention memory, engagement, dropout risk identification and other targeting metrics through the review of prominent studies. Students will learn about how learning analytics is being used to improve curriculum and pedagogy as well as institutional accountability. Students will be introduced to learning analytics in current practice and how it can help administration, as well as be exposed to faculty, student, and administration perspectives regarding the process. Students will engage in a more detailed discussion of legal issues regarding learning analytics as well as other soft side dimensions of learning analytics that are needed at the institutional level such as ethics and data literacy. Students will be encouraged to plan a hypothetical learning analytics initiative based on the information they have learned.
