Event Description

Instructors strive to create effective learning spaces and opportunities where students engage with course content, actively participate in course activities, and connect with their peers. Using course data to evaluate and improve learning is a key aspect of learning analytics and can be a useful evidence-based approach for helping instructors succeed in achieving these teaching goals.

This online workshop will provide an overview of the emerging field of learning analytics, highlighting opportunities and areas in which learning analytics can support you and your students. As part of this session, you’ll gain experience using Canvas Analytics to observe and reflect on activity in your courses. You will also learn more about learning analytics dashboards and tools that can support you in analyzing and reflecting on teaching and learning activities.

The goal for this session is to highlight opportunities and areas in which learning analytics can support you, as an instructor, in improving teaching, learning, and engagement in your courses. This workshop will also provide an overview of current learning analytics research, as well as learning analytics tools that are currently available to UBC instructors through the Learning Analytics Project.
