Learning Analytics Community of Practice


A community of students, academic and professional staff who are interested in identifying and making use of data to inform best practice and evidence-based decision making in learning and teaching.


Monthly Meetings Face to Face and Via ZOOM

We have a core membership but are keen to have folks participate intermittently or even once or twice; bring your question along to a meeting and as a group we will work toward a solution.

  • Each agenda includes: discussion, problem identification, learning and solutions
  • Lunch and snacks provide an opportunity to reflect and share experiences
  • One project solution is usually published each year
