October 10, 2020
Based on an NSF-funded workshop, Drs. Teasley (School of Information) and Kelly discuss learning analytics goals and research priorities for the coming decade. They report on a research agenda that would strengthen the connection between learning analytics and recognition of learner competencies. This could have a transformative impact on the relationship between higher education and employment. The agenda will also generate significant new research questions leading to insights about learning and the data science techniques for analyzing learning.
