Fellowship Of The Learning Activity Learning Analytics (FoLA2)

Fellowship Of The Learning Activity Learning Analytics (FoLA2)

Game, open access, Project, Workshop — March 27, 2020
In the last years, research to connect learning analytics to learning design has been on the rise, but there still are a number of steps that need to be taken in order to make a workable connection between learning analytics and learning design. To improve the quality it is important to capture andstructure the design choices and to retrieve data on the behavior, the effects and the opinions about the designed learning activities. In an effort to get (1) input on the learning design choices of learning activities and (2) bridge the gap between learning analytics and learning design, a board game has been developed. The Fellowship of the Learning Activity is a serious game that captures and systematizes the learning design of learning activities. Additionally, the game brings awareness…

Workshop Trusted Learning Analytics

Workshop Trusted Learning Analytics

Workshop — July 1, 2019
Im Rahmen des hessischen Projekts Digital gestütztes Lehren und Lernen in Hessen (digLL) hat das Innovationsforum Trusted Learning Analytics (TLA) am 1. Juli 2019 einen Workshop im Hause des DIPF | Leibniz-Institut für Bildungsforschung und Bildungsinformation durchgeführt. Elf Teilnehmer aus sechs hessischen Hochschulen und der zentralen digLL-Servicestelle haben intensiv über Möglichkeiten und Hindernisse einer Einführung von Learning Analytics an hessischen Hochschulen diskutiert. Schnell ist deutlich geworden, dass sowohl bei Lehrenden als auch bei Lernenden ein großes Interesse an den Möglichkeiten von Learning Analytics besteht, die Vorbehalte gegenüber einer breiten Datensammlung und -auswertung aber mindestens genauso groß sind. Dementsprechend ist die Einstellung der Datenschutzbeauftragten der Hochschulen gegenüber solcher Vorhaben sehr zurückhaltend bis ablehnend. Da die Teilnehmer des Workshops diese Einstellung teilen, wurde besprochen, wie datenschutzgerechtes und somit eine Trusted Form von Learning Analytics gestaltet werden…
