Would you be interested in a tool that shows you which courses students in your program usually take as electives? How about a Canvas dashboard that shows you how your grades compare to the class average?
UBC is exploring how learning data and analytics tools can empower students and support their learning. To find out what tools would be most useful to students, the Learning Analytics Project is recruiting students to represent their peers as part of a needs assessment that will inform the development of data-driven tools for students.
Join the Learning Analytics Student Consultation Group
We’re seeking students to join UBC’s Learning Analytics Student Consultation Group. At each meeting, you’ll learn about UBC’s progress in developing learning analytics tools for students and will have an opportunity to provide feedback that will inform the development of tools that will be made available to all students across campus. Meetings are held every 1-2 months.
If you’d like to join the Learning Analytics Student Consultation Group, please fill out this form. You’ll receive meeting notifications, updates and the occasional requests for feedback on tools.
Not sure you have time to commit to more than one meeting? No problem! Students are invited to drop in to any and all consultation group meetings. Stay tuned for our next meeting date.
What is learning analytics?
Learning analytics is a relatively new field that involves the collection and analysis of educational data to support student success. Learning analytics tools for students can support evidence-informed decisions by, for example, providing information about students’ own engagement and performance in their online courses or the average time to degree completion in a particular program.
