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, Sakinah Alhadad 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.


Open invitation to attend the LA-SIG’s first webinar of 2019

The Learning Analytics SIG will be conducting its first webinar of the year on the ideas discussed in the blog above and how the field of learning analytics has developed over the years. Future directions and challenges will be addressed by the session’s presenter, Dr Cassandra Colvin from Charles Sturt University. Cassandra will overview the field of learning analytics, chronicling its development to date, and, through a series of provocations, challenge us to (re-) consider its future possibilities, particularly in light of our own professional contexts and disciplinary knowledge.

The webinar will take place on Friday 12 April at 11am AEST Wednesday 1 May at 11am AEST and you can register for this event here. Pre-registration will allow us to send you a brief reminder prior to the event.
