EUA supports new survey on how universities use learning analytics

20 October 2016

Current discussions on learning and teaching innovation often refer to learning analytics as a game-changer in the field, as methods of online student data analysis hold great potential in addressing challenges faced by European higher education institutions.

A new survey, supported by EUA and conducted in the framework of the SHEILA project (Supporting Higher Education to Integrate Learning Analytics), aims to provide clarity about this potential by asking universities to what extent they use and/or they are considering to use learning analytics and what their experiences have been. 

Institutions that want to participate in the survey, and use the opportunity to reflect on their use of learning analytics, are invited to fill out the project survey questionnaire. This will take about 25 to 30 minutes and should be done by 4 November 2016.

The SHEILA project intends to map the use of learning analytics and to assist European universities in becoming more mature users and custodians of digital data about their students as they learn online. The project consortium, led by Edinburgh University, will build a policy development framework that promotes formative assessment and personalised learning by taking advantage of direct engagement of stakeholders in the development process.

The project is funded under the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme and will run from 2016 to 2018. EUA supports the project as an associate partner and as part of its digital agenda.
