Invitation to PhD course in Learning Analytics

May 25, 2022

SLATE invites applications for a PHD course in Learning Analytics. The course will run from 29 August - 5 December, parallel and in collaboration with an identical course at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), and University of Copenhagen (UCPH). 

The course aims to provide a sound ground for the understanding of the LA area of research and practice. The course will address the taxonomy of learning analytics and related terms such as educational data mining and academic analytics. It will also present the theoretical background behind learning analytics and the concepts of the big data paradigm shift. The LA process and procedures will be discussed in detail, including data gathering, analysis and generation of insights. The key ethical and privacy issues will also be covered. The practical aspect of the course will enable the students to practice the use of different LA methods, including epistemic network analysis, social network analysis, process- and sequence mining, as well as basics of visualisation.

Registration deadline: 15 August.
