SoLAR Webinar “Investigating persistent and new challenges of learning analytics in higher education” presented by Prof Hendrik Drachsler from the Open University and Goethe University. See link to register.

Abstract: In this webinar, Prof Hendrik Drachsler will reflect on the process of applying learning analytics solutions within higher education settings, its implications, and the critical lessons learned in the Trusted Learning Research Program. The talk will focus on the experience of research collective consisting of researchers from the Netherlands and Germany that contribute to the Trusted Learning Analytics (TLA) research program. The TLA program aims to provide actionable and supportive feedback to students and stands in the tradition of human-centered learning analytics concepts. Thus, the TLA program aims to contribute to unfolding the full potential of each learner. It, therefore, applies sensor technology to support psychomotor as well as web technology to support meta-cognitive and collaborative learning skills with high-informative feedback methods. Prof. Drachsler applies validated measurement instruments from the field of psychometric and investigates to what extent Learning Analytics interventions can reproduce the findings of these instruments. During this webinar, Prof Drachsler will discuss the lessons learned from implementing TLA systems. He will touch on TLA prerequisites like ethics, privacy, and data protection, as well as high informative feedback for psychomotor, collaborative, and meta-cognitive competencies and the ongoing research towards a repository, methods, tools and skills that facilitate the uptake of TLA in Germany and the Netherlands.
