Aims and Objectives
With the introduction of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018, renewed focus has come on the capture and use of data, and this SIG would explore the issue from the platform of a pan-European network. The SIG aims:
To build a pan-European network of members engaged or interested in Learning Analytics in dental education
To explore best practice in using Learning Analytics to support learning
To engage students in the discussion of how their data can be best used to support their learning
To engage teaching staff in exploring how Learning Analytics can help them teach efficiently and effectively
The SIG objectives are:
To collate evidence of Learning Analytics systems and usage across Europe
To create an online network to facilitate discussion and information exchange
To create a student forum on Learning Analytics
To publish the outputs of the survey for wider dissemination
To collate guidance for Dental Schools based on the work of the SIG
