ASCILITE 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 Simon Welsh, Shane Dawson, Grace Lynch, Negin Mirriahi and Abelardo Pardo.

Membership of the LA SIG is open to all, including non-ASCILITE members. To be kept up to date, complete this simple form. You can contact the LA SIG Committee via this email address:

  • Share ideas, ask questions and participate in conversations via our LA SIG Google Group.
  • Be a part of our SIG events and Awards program.
  • Use the LA resources and contacts.

Awards for Excellence in Learning Analytics

sig-awardThe SIG operates an Awards program to recognise excellence in the practical application of LA to enhance learning and teaching. A key driver for the Awards program is to create and share resources about effective LA practices. We want to give a voice to all who are working with LA to improve learning and teaching – whatever the scale of their endeavours.

The LA SIG Awards Program was launched in 2015 and the submissions for 2015 and 2016 can be found here.

We believe these presentations will form an important resource library around the use of LA in tertiary education across Australasia and New Zealand.

2017 Award Applications

Applications for the 2017 Awards will open in July 2017.  Details of the 2016 Awards can be found in the Awards Program Information Guide.

The SIG team continues to look forward to another fantastic crop of entries in 2017 and wish you all the best with your submissions.
