SPEC Survey Webcast on Learning Analytics

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 @ 1:00 pm1:45 pm

Learning Analytics, SPEC Kit 360

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is offering a series of webcasts that present the findings from the latest SPEC surveys and allow webcast participants to discuss trends with the survey authors. A 45-minute webcast will follow the publication of each SPEC Kit in 2018.


The next webcast in this series will cover the Learning Analytics survey (SPEC Kit 360), which explores how ARL member institutions are navigating the balance between gathering and managing data in support of learning analytics initiatives while attending to the profession’s ethics commitments.

The webcast will review survey findings reported by ARL member libraries in May 2018. The survey authors will:

  • review learning analytics participation by ARL member libraries and the supporting policies, procedures, and partnerships for this work;
  • provide a snapshot of the types of data used in learning analytic initiatives undertaken by ARL member libraries;
  • share highlights of data management practices from ARL member libraries; and
  • review recommendations and best practices from authors.

The webcast will also include a discussion of trends and conclude with a question-and-answer session. Read the freely available SPEC KIt 360 in advance and have your questions ready.
