Is Academic Development Ready for Academic Analytics?
Session Time and Location
Academic analytics have become increasingly important as universities grapple with challenges of student success (Campbell, DeBlois, and Oblinger, 2007). This workshop will briefly outline the process used for initiating an institutional academic analytics project at Dalhousie University. This workshop will use cases to engage the workshop participants in key conversations around: the ethical use of analytics data, and using analytics data to inform both individual course redesign and program level curriculum renewal. Finally, the workshop will end by exploring strategies to ensure the readiness of academic developers who might be tasked with supporting the use of academic analytics.
