Free ticketed event
The workshop consists in three modules:
1. A case-based approach on our institutional experience adopting a learning analytics tool. Apart of having a conducted discussion, we want to talk about the gains and losses in doing so. Not everything is perfect.
2. Participants will have the chance to use a demo in order to identify opportunities of using this type of tool in their institution.
3. Participants will be guided through a card-sorting activity to evaluate the design and to provide feedback in order to improve the tool from a UX point of view – Does it work for me? How would I use it? My dream platform would be…
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Recognize an opportunity to adopt a learning analytics solution for quality assurance,
Test and evaluate an existing learning analytics solution for supporting curriculum improvement.
Reflect on the need of a learning analytics solution for supporting quality assurance within their institutions.
