Indiana University will be hosting its second annual Learning Analytics Summit on April 3-5, 2019, in Bloomington, IN. Sponsored by the Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS), this years’ theme is Engaging Faculty in the Research of Student Success. Registration is free but space is limited!
The purpose of the annual summit is to foster the widespread use of learning analytics by faculty, providing them with the support and tools they to conduct scholarly research about their students at the course, program and institutional levels. According to George Rehrey, founding director of CLASS, “When it comes to creating an overall data-informed citizenry on college campuses, we are taking a top-down, bottom-up and middle-out approach. This is because, like other BVA initiatives, we recognize that the department culture is the fulcrum for any sustainable change in higher ed., and for that culture to change requires the active engagement of faculty.”
There will be many opportunities to collaborate with colleagues in working session and showcase your contributions to the field, including short paper presentations, lightning round presentations, and a poster session.
Keynote speakers include internationally recognized scholar Dr. Tim McKay and Dr. Anna Drake Warshaw. McKay is the Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Physics, Astronomy, and Education and Director of the Digital Innovation Greenhouse at the University of Michigan.
Warshaw is the Director of Partnerships, Learning, and Evaluation for the University Innovation Alliance (UIA), the leading national coalition of public research universities committed to increasing the number and diversity of college graduates in the United States.
Poster and presentation proposals are due March 1, 2019. To learn more about the summit or to submit proposals for presentation, please visit lasummit.indiana.edu .
Indiana University is also leading the BVA’s RAC3. The Learning Analytics Fellows program engages faculty in use of big data and predictive modeling to further student success.
