Event description

Description

Join us on Monday, February 25 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the West Conference Room (4th Floor) of Rackham Graduate School (915 E Washington St) for AIM Analytics as we welcome in Ryan Baker, Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.

AIM Analytics is a bi-weekly seminar series for researchers across U-M who are interested in learning analytics. The field of learning analytics is a multi and interdisciplinary field that brings together researchers from education, learning sciences, computational sciences and statistics, and all discipline-specific forms of educational inquiry.

Title: Some Challenges for the Next 18 years of Learning Analytics

Abstract:

After nine years of learning analytics conferences, we have accurate models of constructs many didn't think we could model, dashboards and interventions and (some) evidence they work, and scaled solutions that are being used to change student outcomes. Learning analytics has been unusually successful in a short time.

Let's pat ourselves on the back. And after that, let's reflect.

We have solved some challenging problems. So, what's next?

Where should we go -- and are we actually going there?

I have a few thoughts. And a few concerns.

In this talk, I'll discuss a few hard problems that I see looming in the path of an optimally beneficial learning analytics; some of the big goals I think we can strive to achieve; some of the grand challenges we will need to --and I think can -- solve; and perhaps most importantly -- how we'll know if we've gotten there.
