About the Learning Analytics SIG

The ASCILITE Learning Analytics Special Interest Group (LA-SIG) aims to develop awareness and resources about Learning Analytics (LA) and its application to learning and teaching. We focus on facilitating networks and sharing practices among the LA community across Australia and New Zealand.

The LA-SIG Committee is comprised of Hazel Jones, Casandra Colvin and Linda Corrin. The focus of this group is on enabling practitioners to use Learning Analytics to inform their teaching practice with reference to Learning Design. It will complement the work being undertaken through the Society of Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR) and associated groups such as the Australian Learning Analytics Summer Institute (ALASI) and various State Learning Analytics Working Groups.

You will find further information on the SIG in the LA-SIG menu, including webinar recordings, resources and ways to get involved.


View Recording of LA-SIG’s first webinar of 2019

The Learning Analytics SIG conducted its first webinar of the year on 1 May 2019.  In the session, the ideas discussed in the blog post here were covered along with how the field of learning analytics has developed over the years. Future directions and challenges were addressed by the session’s presenter, Dr Cassandra Colvin from Charles Sturt University. Cassandra provided an overview of the field of learning analytics, chronicling its development to date, and, through a series of provocations, challenged participants to (re-) consider its future possibilities, particularly in light of their own professional contexts and disciplinary knowledge.  You can access the session recording here,
