SMP 2/21/15 | Hail to the Data: What We're Learning from Learning Analytics | Speaker: Timothy McKay
At the University of Michigan today, many interactions among teachers and students are mediated by technology. Students use clickers in class, do homework online, write and revise papers and project in the cloud, and produce video of presentations. This 'digital exhaust' gives us unprecedented opportunities to understand teaching and learning and improve student success. A new field of Learning Analytics is emerging to take advantage of this opportunity. Professor Timothy McKay’s presentation will introduce this topic using examples from a variety of local projects.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street parking structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
