3:50 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: Teachers, We Hear You! How to Create System Conditions for the Sustainable Uptake of Learning Analytics and Increase Stakeholder Buy-in
To sustainably adopt Learning Analytics, there must be a strategic capability that orchestrates the setting for the analysis of complex data and an implementation capability that integrates data and tools with educator practices. More than 87 percent of teachers claim analytics can be a powerful instruction tool in the classroom. These tools are essential drivers that will push/pull the educator’s adoption of Learning Analytics from “interested” to “implementation”.
- Let’s sift through the teacher’s real needs in order to increase their adoption of LA frameworks in teaching.
- Selecting the best method for presenting complex sets of data to reduce resistance to adoption
- Can you explore how analytics tools can form actionable feedback for teachers?
- Making iterative changes to the teacher’s need to change their mindsets, uplift capability and drive development
2:30 PM How to Co-Create Analytics with Students, Teachers and the Experts using 5 Practical Principles
There are three stakeholders in the future of learning analytics: learning analytics experts, teachers and students. However, while innovations are quickly growing within the group of learning analytics experts, there are ongoing challenges to translate research ideas into real action.
Without support from teachers and students many learning analytics initiatives are likely to be left behind and discarded. To ensure this does not happen, we need collaborative design processes, such as co-creation, to actively involve teachers and students and ensure that learning analytics meets the needs of its users.
This workshop will outline practical principles that can be used by learning analytics experts, university administrators, and those new to learning analytics to understand how learning analytics interventions and platforms can be supportive of co-creation across stakeholders. From this workshop, participants will be able to design and analyse interventions across the principles and help their institution improve future efforts.
- How to create interventions that include teachers and students in meaningful ways
- Understanding five key principles of cocreation design
- Interactive case studies that give participants examples to identify how to improve design and implementation processes
- Fostering stakeholder buy-in, what issues need to be addressed and what can we do?
