Learning Analytics Summer Institute 2017

This year’s field-building Learning Analytics Summer Institute (twitter #lasi17), organised by SoLAR, was once again hosted at U. Michigan with satellite LASI-Locals running internationally (e.g. for reference, here’s the 2016 program). I joined, with Andrew Gibson, where we made contributions on several fronts…

  • Opening keynote address Learning Analytics vs. Cognitive Automation (replay the talk below • PDF slidesreplay the other keynotes).
  • Andrew led training in Writing Analytics, explaining our approach to the design of natural language processing to enable instant feedback to students on their writing (workshop 4)
  • I ran a briefing on how the learning analytics community can think about the ways in which data and algorithms take on ethical dimensions (tutorial 8 slides below • PDF)

Video opens with a welcome to LASI from U. Michigan professor and SoLAR President Stephanie Teasley, followed by some incisive introductory comments on the state of Learning Analytics from UM Vice-Provost Academic Innovation James Hilton.
