Learning Analytics in Higher EducationNew Directions for Higher Education, Number 179
J-B HE Single Issue Higher Education 1. Aufl.
Gain an overview of learning analytics technologies in higher education, including broad considerations and the barriers to introducing them. This volume features the work of practitioners who led some of the most notable implementations, like: the Open Learning Initiative now at Stanford University, faculty-led projects at the University of Michigan, including ECoach and SLAM, the University of Maryland, Baltimore County?s Check My Activity and Indiana University?s FLAGS early warning system and e-course advising initiatives. Readers will glean from these experiences, as well as from a national project in Australia on innovative approaches for enhancing student experience, an informed description of the role of feedback within these technologies, and a thorough discussion of ethical and social justice issues related to the use of learning analytics, and why higher education institutions should approach such initiatives cautiously, intentionally, and collaboratively. This is the 179th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, it provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.
