Ready to Rumble? Ethics of Learning Analytics


Primary Presenter: Janet Corral

Organization: University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Role: Professor of Educational Informatics

Track: Discussion

Topic: Student Assessment, Engagement, Success

Level: For Mere Mortals


Abstract: Learning analytics are being used in schools, universities, companies, and at state and federal levels to measure various aspects of learning and education success.  The expectation is that these tools will be used to personalize learning to better scaffold students and to make teaching and educational decisions.  Yet, no common ground exists on who holds what data, how, how long, and with what transparency, security or privacy. Bring your voice to the discussion in this point/counterpoint, the results of which will impact policies and procedures related to the ethics of learning analytics. 


Bio: Dr. Janet Corral is a professor of educational informatics at University of Colorado School of Medicine and keenly interested in how we prepare teachers, students, parents, administrators and vendors for the ethical use of learning analytics in ways that can improve learning. An invited keynote and well-travelled international speaker, Dr. Corral is known for her engaging style, insistence on audience participation, and for sharing resources with the audience and on social media to further strengthen the community. If there is someone who can make a controversial topic professional and fun to discuss, it’s her!
