Instructors strive to create effective learning spaces and opportunities where students engage with course content, participate in course activities, connect with their peers, and are invested in learning. Using course data to evaluate and improve learning is a key aspects of Learning Analytics and can be a useful evidence-based tool for helping both instructors and students achieve success in their teaching and learning.

This workshop will provide an overview to the emerging field of learning analytics. It will focus on OnTask, an analytics tool that enables instructors to give targeted, customized messages based on the metrics that they set for their courses. This allows instructors to provide students with timely and personal feedback that can scale to large courses.

This hands-on workshop will also review current research and provide an overview of UBC’s learning analytics pilot. The facilitators will explore opportunities and areas in which learning analytics can support you, as an instructor, in improving teaching, learning, and engagement in your courses.
