Data analytics for learning – beyond learning data

On Wednesday 24th November at 11.00 am (UK) we’re hosting the latest in a series of open invitation conversations around themes of product management for learning and digital learning services. This time we are exploring data analytics.

So often the Cinderella of learning, is it time for data analysis to join the party properly and take its rightful place amongst the trendsetters? Or is the industry stuck in the assignment and completion tracking dungeon?

We have some ideas about how learning teams and services can think about data and analytics and how to extend our work ‘beyond learning alone’. Some key questions we’ll address are:

  • What are useful principles and approaches for data and analytics?
  • What other data sources are useful?
  • How best to gather them?
  • Where does data fit in design and solution development?

We know there is plenty of experience out there to share and some nervousness about ‘the numbers’. Join us to explore these themes, share your experience and questions about data in learning.

This is a free event. You can read about previous sessions on design and product management capabilities as a taster.
