Request for participants in research: Student Perceptions of Learning Analytics
Curtin University collects a wide range of data from students (‘big data’) that can provide insights into student learning behaviours, student retention, and student experience. The collecting, analysing and reporting of data on learners with the aim of optimising learning through providing personalised feedback and support is referred to as learning analytics.
The aim of the proposed project is to inform the development and implementation of learning analytics at Curtin University through determining student attitudes toward big data and learning analytics. The results will help inform the University on how to use the big data collected to become a better, more effective place of learning that works to the benefits of students, staff, and community.
