Learning Analytics courses and degree programs both on- and offline have begun to proliferate over the last three years. Tens of thousands of students registered for online courses such as DALMOOC and BDEMOOC, there has been considerable excitement around the growth of new degree programs such as the MSc in Learning Analytics at Teachers College, Columbia and the strong analytics focus of the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, as well as an explosion of individual courses including those at the University of Michigan, The University of South Australia and others. These efforts are building on the longstanding teaching of influential material at Carnegie Mellon University and the lasting success of the Learning Analytics Summer Institutes. The growth of the field is clearly happening not just through research, but through the classroom and we should be thoughtful about how these efforts impact the field as a whole .
We therefore invite you to join us for a half-day workshop on building the Learning Analytics Curriculum.
