    "Awards for Excellence in Learning Analytics: Submissions
    The LA SIG operates an Awards program recognising excellence in the practical application of LA to enhance learning and teaching. A key driver for the Awards program is to create and share resources about effective LA practices. We want to give a voice to all who are working with LA to improve learning and teaching - whatever the scale of their endeavours. 

    To this end, all presentations from Award applicants are available below for viewing. (Submissions closed on 11 September).  We believe these presentations will form an important resource library around the use of LA in tertiary education across Australasia and New Zealand.

    You may view the awards submission criteria and other background information on the awards in the SIG Awards Program Information (PDF) and to find out more about LA-SIG activities, go here."

The Connected Learning Analytics (CLA) Toolkit - 0 views

  •  
    "Connected Learning is a modern pedagogical approach holding that knowledge and learning is distributed across a social, conceptual network. It holds that when people forge, negotiate and nurture connections for themselves (between people, information, knowledge, ideas and concepts), learning is more powerful and sustainable.

    Ideally, such learning could happen anywhere. People would create Personal Learning Networks within a Community of Inquiry. They would use whatever tools they consider relevant to this process, and connect with whoever they consider relevant to their network... However, this open connectivism is difficult to achieve in our current educational paradigms. How can we help people to teach "in the wild"? Learning Management Systems maintain a dominant position in the education sector, which means that technical support is generally provided only for those teachers who choose safety over openness."

Networked Improvement Communities: Bryk lectures Bristol 2014 | Learning Emergence - 0 views

    "'Making Systems Work - whether in healthcare, education, climate change, or making a pathway out of poverty - is the great task of our generation as a whole' and at the heart of making systems work is the problem of complexity. 

    Prof Tony Bryk, President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching,  spent a week with people from the Learning Emergence network, leading a Master Class for practitioners, delivering two public lectures and participating in a consultation on Learning Analytics Hubs in Networked Improvement Communities  (background).  A key idea is that in order to engage in quality improvement in any system, we need to be able to 'see the system as a whole' and not just step in and meddle with one part of it."

    "PRODUCTIVE PERSISTENCE: A "PRACTICAL" THEORY OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE STUDENTS SUCCESS
    The Carnegie Foundation's Productive Persistence initiative is a practical theory of the causes of successfully completing coursework at a community college-or, in our terms, the "drivers" of successful course completion.  The term "Productive Persistence" refers to both the tenacity to persist, and also the ability to use good strategiesto productively engage with the course materials. "

    Assessing learning dispositions/academic mindsets
    Mar 01 2014

    A few years ago Ruth and I spent a couple of days with the remarkable Larry Rosenstock at High Tech High, and were blown away by the creativity and passion that he and his team bring to authentic learning. At that point they were just beginning to conceive the idea of a Graduate School of Education (er… run by a high school?!). Yes indeed.

    Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 16.56.56Now they're flying, running the Deeper Learning conference in a few weeks, and right now, the Deeper Learning MOOC [DLMOOC] is doing a great job of bringing practitioners and researchers together, and that's just from the perspective of someone on the edge who has only managed to replay the late night (in the UK) Hangouts and post a couple of stories. Huge thanks and congratulations to Larry, Rob Riordan and everyone else at High Tech High Grad School of Education, plus of course the other supporting organisations and funders who are making this happen.

    Here are two of my favourite sessions, in which we hear from students what it's like to be in schools where mindsets and authentic learning are taken seriously, and a panel of researcher/practitioners

    "Accrediting associations have expectations that call on institutions to collect and use evidence of student learning outcomes at the programmatic and institutional to confirm and improve student learning.  This section of the NILOA website lists both regional accrediting associations and specialized or programmatic accrediting organizations along with links to those groups."

    Welcome to the Program Evaluation Standards, 3rd Edition

     

    Standards Names and Statements

    Errata Sheet for the book

     

    After seven years of systematic effort and much study, the 3rd edition of the Program Evaluation Standards was published this fall by Sage Publishers: http://www.sagepub.com/booksProdDesc.nav?prodId=Book230597&_requestid=255617. The development process relied on formal and informal needs assessments, reviews of existing scholarship, and the involvement of more than 400 stakeholders in national and international reviews, field trials, and national hearings. It's the first revision of the standards in 17 years.

    This third edition is similar to the previous two editions (1981, 1994) in many respects, for example, the book is organized into the same four dimensions of evaluation quality (utility, feasibility, propriety, and accuracy). It also still includes the popular and useful "Functional Table of Standards," a glossary, extensive documentation, information about how to apply the standards, and numerous case applications."

About | SNAPP - Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice - 3 views

  •  
    "The Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice (SNAPP) tool performs real-time social network analysis and visualization of discussion forum activity within popular commercial and open source Learning Management Systems (LMS). SNAPP essentially serves as a diagnostic instrument, allowing teaching staff to evaluate student behavioral patterns against learning activity design objectives and intervene as required a timely manner.

    Valuable interaction data is stored within a discussion forum but from the default threaded display of messages it is difficult to determine the level and direction of activity between participants. SNAPP infers relationship ties from the post-reply data and renders a social network diagram below the forum thread. The social network visualization can be filtered based upon user activity and social network data can be exported for further analysis in NetDraw. SNAPP integrates seamlessly with a variety of Learning Management Systems (Blackboard, Moodle and Desire2Learn) and must be triggered while a forum thread is displayed in a Web browser."

Learning process analytics - EduTech Wiki - 1 views

    "Introduction

    In this discussion paper, we define learning process analytics as a collection of methods that allow teachers and learners to understand what is going on in a' 'learning scenario, i.e. what participants work(ed) on, how they interact(ed), what they produced(ed), what tools they use(ed), in which physical and virtual location, etc. Learning analytics is most often aimed at generating predictive models of general student behavior. So-called academic analytics even aims to improve the system. We are trying to find a solution to a somewhat different problem. In this paper we will focus on improving project-oriented learner-centered designs, i.e. a family of educational designs that include any or some of knowledge-building, writing-to-learn, project-based learning, inquiry learning, problem-based learning and so forth.
    We will first provide a short literature review of learning process analytics and related frameworks that can help improve the quality of educational scenarios. We will then describe a few project-oriented educational scenarios that are implemented in various programs at the University of Geneva. These examples illustrate the kind of learning scenarios we have in mind and help define the different types of analytics both learners and teachers need. Finally, we present a provisional list of analytics desiderata divided into "wanted tomorrow" and "nice to have in the future"."

About | Learning Emergence - 0 views

  •  
    CORE IDEAS
    We decided on the name Learning Emergence because we are very much learning about emergence and complex systems phenomena ourselves, even as we develop our thinking on learning as an emergent, systemic phenomenon in different contexts.

    We must shift to a new paradigm for learning in schools, universities and the workplace which addresses the challenges of the 21st Century. Society needs learners who can cope with intellectual, ethical and emotional complexity of an unprecedented nature.

    Learning Emergence partners share an overarching focus on deep, systemic learning and leadership - the pro-active engagement of learners and leaders in their own authentic learning journey, in the context of relationship and community. We work at the intersection of (1) deep learning and sensemaking, (2) leadership, (3) complex systems, and (4) technology:

    National Survey of Student Engagement
    What is student engagement?
    Student engagement represents two critical features of collegiate quality. The first is the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities. The second is how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to get students to participate in activities that decades of research studies show are linked to student learning.

    What does NSSE do?
    Through its student survey, The College Student Report, NSSE annually collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college.

    NSSE provides participating institutions a variety of reports that compare their students' responses with those of students at self-selected groups of comparison institutions. Comparisons are available for individual survey questions and the five NSSE Benchmarks of Effective Educational Practice. Each November, NSSE also publishes its Annual Results, which reports topical research and trends in student engagement results. NSSE researchers also present and publish research findings throughout the year.
