Students involved in this project will form the core membership of a working group investigating stakeholder perceptions of data/learning analytics within Manchester Met. They will conduct independent literature reviews and small-scale investigations into the current ethical debates around the use of data in educational settings. They will then form a core membership of a working group investigating multiple stakeholder perceptions of data/learning analytics within Manchester Met.
Students will need to attend an initial workshop on learning analytics, and then further meetings as members of the learning analytics working group. There will also be an opportunity to present findings at the RAISE 2020 Conference in September 2020.
