Learning Analytics

In this session, Perry Samson, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences will discuss his analysis of data gathered in his Extreme Weather course through the LectureTools platform.  Preliminary analyses have identified relationships between how students choose to participate in the course (streaming lectures remotely vs attending face-to-face) and their performance in the course. Additionally, Prof. Samson has explored the relationship between students' self-reported physical health, emotional health and course performance.

In this session, Brenda Gunderson and Omar Chavez describe how they implemented E2Coach, a tailored communication system, in Statistics 250. Because of the size of the course and the on-line resources already in use in this course, this implementation generated ample data which have been explored to identify best practices for tailored communication in the educational setting.

How can we help students be better participants in Forums and other online discussions?  How can learning analytics assist instructors in designing better questions, managing time, and optimizing in-class interactions? What do we know about student learning outside of the classroom at U-M, and how can we use that knowledge to create better bridges with in-class practices? 

Audience listening to a presentationThese are some of the questions explored by the February Student Learning and Analytics at Michigan (SLAM) presentations. Open to U-M faculty, staff and students in any field, these lunchtime talks focus on ways to improve teaching and learning through innovative use of data about students, courses, and academic programs.

Featuring both Michigan faculty and visiting experts who have devised or utilized learning analytics tools to foster student learning, past presentations have featured topics ranging from student study practices to digital badging to MOOCs. The talks are sponsored by the Provost's Task Force on Learning Analytics, which was founded in 2012 to investigate the relationships between student preparation, teaching approaches, and student success in the classroom.
