University of Gloucestershire
Park campus (main reception)
What issues need to be considered when rolling out learning analytics across your institution? How are students and staff using the analytics tools provided to them? What policies, processes and staff development need to be in place to make best use of data about students and their learning?
Three universities with institutional learning analytics projects will come together with Jisc to host a conference for UK higher and further education staff. The universities of Gloucestershire, Greenwich and South Wales will discuss the initial findings from their research projects into the effectiveness of their learning analytics initiatives, which are supported by Jisc’s learning analytics research group.
We’ll be joined for our keynote by Kevin Mayles, head of strategic analytics at the Open University (OU), who has been a pioneer in the institution-wide adoption of learning analytics at the OU since 2011.
The conference will take place at the Park campus of the University of Gloucestershire in Cheltenham with easy access from London, Birmingham, Oxford, Bristol and Wales by train, coach or car.
