Annual Conference Session
Assessing students’ learning can be difficult for any instructor, but particularly for librarians who may only work with students for a single, hour-long session. However, with the rise of new learning technologies, instructors and librarians have access to a wealth of data about students’ behaviors and their learning. In this session, panelists from three different universities will discuss their experiences with learning analytics and student data in their campus contexts. Discussion will include practical considerations, benefits and drawbacks, and issues of critical consideration such as student privacy, ethical orientations, and inclusivity practices. In addition, participants will be asked how their efforts with learning analytics and privacy has or might affect their libraries’ approaches to developing students’ information literacy.
