This session focused on ‘Learning Analytics’ and was led by Barney Dalgarno.
The readings below formed the basis for discussion and further thinking about this topic:
Dawson, S. (2009). ‘Seeing’ the learning community: An exploration of the development of a resource for monitoring online student networking. British Journal of Educational Technology, 41(5), 736–752.
Kennedy, G., Ioannou, I., Zhou, Y., Bailey, & J., O’Leary, S. (2013). Mining interactions in immersive learning environments for real-time student feedback. Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 29(2), 172-183.
‘Think piece’ by Alan Bain accessible at http://www.csu.edu.au/division/landt/dialogue-about-learning-and-teaching/think-pieces-2013/abain2013, provides a critique of pedagogy neutral (or absent) applications of learning technologies and by implication some applications of learning analytics.
