This open textbook is a curation of resources related to recent learning analytics (LA) initiatives at Sheridan College, exploring LA from philosophical, methodological, instructional, and ethical points of view,
Sheridan’s work in LA aims to leverage learning data to help foster a culture of care and bolster the success of students. While these resources are grounded in the work at the College, it is our hope that they will support and inspire educators with tools and guidance on how to use data to inform and enhance teaching and learning.
In the pages that follow, you will find background information related to LA, recordings from Community of Practice meetings, interactive infographics, links to current research, guiding documents, and reflective worksheets.
