Learning Analytics courses and degree programs both on- and offline have begun to proliferate over the last four years. Tens of thousands of students registered for online courses such as DALMOOC (Siemens, Rose, Gasevic, & Baker, 2014), BDEMOOC (Baker, 2015), and Learning Analytics Fundamentals (Siemens, Dellinger, Lang, 2018) there has been considerable excitement around the growth of new degree programs such as the MSc in Learning Analytics at Teachers College, Columbia (Teachers College, Columbia University, 2015) and the strong analytics focus of the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh (The Moray House School of Education, The University of Edinburgh, 2015), and also the addition of two new learning analytics degree programs, the EdM in Learning Analytics at Northeastern (2017) and the Graduate Certificate in Learning Analytics at Brandeis University (2017) and the graduate certificate in Advanced Analytics in Higher Education at ASU Online (2018). As well as an explosion of individual courses including those at the University of Michigan (McKay, 2016), The University of South Australia (Rogers, 2016) 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 (Society for Learning Analytics Research, 2016) as well as professionally- minded projects such as LACE (LACE Project, 2016). As such, the growth of the field is clearly happening not just through research, but through the classroom.
We invite you to join us for a half-day workshop on building the Learning Analytics Curriculum.
