The journal is the official publication of the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR). With an international Editorial Board comprising leading scholars, it is the first journal dedicated to research into the challenges of collecting, analysing and reporting data with the specific intent to improve learning. “Learning” is broadly defined across a range of contexts, including informal learning on the internet, formal academic study in institutions (primary/secondary/tertiary), and workplace learning.

Sandbox:Phase Five Evaluation Evaluation phase takes place once the course has successfully come to an end for the first time (sometimes this phase might happen while the course is running depending on the urgency of the issues and demands/feedback from students). In order to prepare the course for the second offering, the course development team will meet again to evaluate the course based on the first offering, the student evaluations, peer feedback, instructor's notes and reflection, feedback provided by the course instructor/course author and the team.

Learning the Corporate Culture Learning the Corporate Culture Contents: Back to Career Contents Page To use a simple analogy, fitting into a company's corporate culture is like buying a new pair of shoes.

How [unfavorable] student feedback improves Online Courses I look forward to the end of each course session when I get to analyze student comments and criticisms – which I do with great zeal. No doubt like anyone else, I enjoy reading the positive responses which can be uplifting and encouraging. But, it’s the constructive feedback I dissect to determine how we can improve our courses. I’ve learned that a key factor in gathering ‘good’ feedback is to develop a ‘good’ feedback form – one that is customized to the online experience. And, the questionnaire needs to be modified on a consistent basis as courses evolve and change – online courses are not static, nor should the questionnaire be. In this post I’ll share questions we’ve used to solicit ‘good’ feedback, and how it has helped improve our courses, and I’ll close with a list of resources for creating effective feedback forms in online learning environments.

Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy ILA Overview (information-learning theories and model) The ILA allowed students to learn about Australian Colonisation following a guided inquiry approach. The goal of the unit was to allow students to formulate a deep understanding of the subject area by way of research. This style of research has many benefits as highlighted by Kuhlthau (2007).

Threshold concepts Most of our planning for teaching is pretty crude. It's worse than that, it's hopeless. We—and particularly our managers—like to pretend that it isn't. We (they) devise fancy forms for "Schemes of Work" and "Lesson Plans" full of "SMART" objectives and incomprehensible coded cross-references to the syllabus. But we know that however carefully we have "planned", by the third week there is only the most tenuous connection between the reality of student learning and the fantasy of our teaching plan.
