The question “how can you drive Learning Analytics within your Institution” was the one I set myself to try to answer when I presented at the recent Gregynog Colloquium. The link to the slides illustrates how I tried to facilitate the audience to find an answer. The audience where IT Services staff from across various Welsh Higher Education Institutions.
The approach was to (i) make them aware on the cross institutional nature of Learning Analytics, therefore all stakeholders have a role, (ii) touch on how we all are change agents, (iii) and provide some practical steps to promoting the change?
As you’ll see from the slide deck, I drew upon a methodology we use to develop out use cases, and encouraged them to reflect on how their role fits within these use cases. The final step was to raise awareness of the factors which determine institutional readiness.
