Apereo Webinar: Ethical Challenges in Learning Analytics

Should students be asked for their consent for their data to be used in learning analytics? What happens if they try to game the system? How can we avoid overly-simplistic metrics which reduce the individual to a number?
In this interactive session, Niall Sclater will outline some of the ethical challenges faced by the many universities which are now implementing learning analytics, and will propose some ways forward.
Niall is an independent educational technology consultant in the UK. He developed Jisc’s Code of Practice for Learning Analytics, and is working with Jisc to roll out learning analytics at universities across the UK. He is author of Learning Analytics Explained, to be published shortly by Routledge. His blog and publication list are at sclater.com.
