Learning Analytics is currently a buzzword in Higher Education and encompasses the analysis and visualisation of big data. Current interest results from the growing access to data, the many software tools available to analyse this data and the use of data for decision making and especially for informing the design of learning interventions for students struggling with their studies. This year’s CPUT Teaching and Learning with Technology Day will feature a key note by Mr Dolf Jordaan, who will reflect on the University of Pretoria’s experience with introducing learning analytics to support their learners. He will provide an overview of current applications and uses of learning analytics and how it can help institutions of learning better support their learners. Furthermore during this event, you will be introduced to our new DVC Knowledge and Information Technology Services, Prof Louis Fourie, who will present his ICT vision for CPUT; the importance of multilingual education will be highlighted with a presentation by Dr Philip Lewis from Stellenbosch University, who uses technology to teach his medical students in isiXhosa; and Lovemore Nalube from the CPUT web office will round up the keynotes, by showcasing our own CPUT mobile app.
The day will also serve as a platform to showcase, share, inspire, train and engage in some of the most innovative practices and experiences using technologies in teaching and learning at CPUT. Practices and experiences are not limited to the topics covered in the key notes – please come and share with your colleagues how you have innovated your teaching and learning using technology.
If you would like to present during this event, please email email@example.com before Friday, the 3rd of October 2014.
