Sheila MacNeill: “Making sense of Learning Analytics” at Talis Insight 2015


Sheila wears several hats. In no particular order: Learning Technologist, Academic, trustee for ALT, Blogger, owner of several pairs of shoes… and the list goes on. We were delighted when she accepted our invitation to speak at Talis Insight 2015, and bring her perspective on Learning Analytics. As I have with all other speakers, I requested Sheila to share a title and synopsis for her session. So here it is:

Let’s start at the very beginning: making sense of the sound of learning analytics.

In this presentation Sheila will reflect on the challenges around making sense of the “noise” around learning analytics.  Where do you start when you are trying to  develop institutional support for learning analytics? Where is the beginning of the journey – unlike the song there is no doh, ray, me to easily follow.  Sheila will share some of the experiences, approaches and prototypes that have been developed over the past year at GCU.  

Sheila’s session commences at 3:25 PM on Day One, 15th April 2015. Following her session, she will be joining a panel facilitated by Richard Maccabee from ULCC. She will also be joined by Mark Stubbs (Manchester Metropolitan University), Niall Sclater (consultant to JISC)  and Adam Cooper (CETIS).
