FW: Transforming the Student Experience, free 1-day learning analytics symposium at Nottingham Trent University, 21st June 2017


Transforming the Student Experience: The role of learner analytics in the modern university

1 day symposium, Wednesday 21st June, 2017

Nottingham Trent University, City Site        



Dear colleague


We are hosting a learning analytics symposium on Wednesday 21st June at our City Campus in conjunction with our technology partners: Solutionpath.


This event might be particularly interesting to learning developers as much of our work focusses on the relationship between students' engagement with their course and progression and attainment. In particular, Dr Edwards' session will focus on key findings about the relationship between a learning development intervention and student engagement.


We will cover two key themes:

·         Key lessons learnt from Nottingham Trent University's experience of embedding learner analytics across the whole institution

·         New approaches to developing learning analytics from a range of sector experts


Our speakers include:

·         Keynote: Professor Eunice Simmons, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, NTU – Using learner analytics to deliver the University's strategic objectives

·         Mike Kerrigan, Strategic Data and Intelligence Manager, NTU – Using engagement data to identify students at risk: an equality & diversity perspective

·         Dr Rebecca Edwards, ABLE Project Officer, NTU - Using NTU's Student Dashboard to open new insights into successful students and successful staff interventions

·         Phil Richards, Chief Innovation Officer, JISC – The role of JISC's Learning Records Warehouse, the importance of data, and how JISC can support you

·         Steve Butcher, Head of Procurement, HEFCE – Flipped Learning

·         To be confirmed, Thomas International - PPA in education – applications, benefits, outcomes

·         To be confirmed, Government Behavioural Insights Team (Nudge Unit) – Small changes can make a big difference; the team's approach to understanding the drivers of behaviour and thinking differently about solutions


To book a place, please follow the instructions on this page


This event is run jointly between NTU and Solutionpath and forms part of our dissemination strategy for the ABLE and STELA Erasmus+ research projects.



Best wishes
