UW–Madison’s Julia Rutledge, the director of the MS in Educational Psychology program in the School of Education’s Department of Educational Psychology, was a presenter at a roundtable session on learning analytics at the recent American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.
The session, titled “Graduate Programs in Learning Analytics (LA) Workshop,” focused on curriculum and instructional approaches to LA and how to improve existing programs.
The goal of the roundtable was to identify effective instructional strategies and share curriculum resources. Rutledge is quoted extensively in an article from North Carolina State University about the roundtable: “This was an important first step in building a network for learning analytics programs and our students,” says Rutledge. “It was encouraging to learn how each of our programs supports students in building ethical and equitable analytical practices. I am excited for how the learning analytics field will benefit from our socially — and computationally — responsible graduates.”
