Learning analytics adoption – approaches and maturity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOther


The poster presents the change of prioritised approaches to learning analytics (LA) among higher education as their experience of adoption increases. The study examined
27 UK and European higher education institutions using the Epistemic Network Analysis technique. Results show that institutions with one or more years of experience with LA put
more emphasis on understanding learning or teaching phenomena, whereas institutions with less experience of LA focused more on measuring the phenomena. This implicates a change of conceptualisation among institutions as their experience with LA increases.
