LAK 2018 workshop involvement of stakeholders for learning analytics at scale

On March 6, 2018 the workshop “Involving stakeholders in learning analytics: opportunity or threat for learning analytics at scale?” was held at the Learning Analytics & Knowledge Conference in Sydney, Australia. Based on 4 paper presentations, the attendees discussed the strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities of the involvement of stakeholders for learning analytics at scale.

The full output report can be found here

Strengths

Weaknesses

  • Once their concerns (privacy, ethics) are addressed, students and teachers generally support learning analytics initiatives.
  • Given the academic nature of universities, learning analytics pilots are generally easy to start.
  • The more complex a university’s IT infrastructure and landscape, the more difficult it is to scale learning analytics interventions that are integrated with the landscape.
  • Commitment of the executive board is necessary to gain the necessary resources to scale up learning analytics initiatives.

Threats

Opportunities

  • National action plans for learning analytics are easier to initiate and execute when universities share common organizational structures and IT landscapes.
  • Diversity in university governance, structures, and IT landscapes poses a challenge for national approaches to introducing learning analytics at scale.
  • International projects are hampered by different privacy laws in different countries.
