Whether we like it or not, analytics are deeply integrated into our education systems, shaping policy and investment, whilst also influencing student recruitment, progression and employment. For educators, it presents a challenge to make sense of personal feedback in class, from assessment scores, evaluation data, and aggregated usage data. In this Tweetchat, we want to explore what educators need for analytics: what data would be most useful, when should it be provided, and how could it be made available. Questions to be asked at intervals through the session include:
Q1. How do you use analytics in your everyday life?
Q2. How are analytics currently used by educators at your Uni’s (if at all)?
Q3. In what circumstances could analytics improve learning and/or learning behaviours?
Q4. What are the challenges of capturing meaningful data on student learning?
Q5. When should analytics be available to educators? Before, during or after class?
Q6. What would be an ideal situation for using analytics by educators at your Uni?
