Call for Participants

By Samantha Ahern, on 19 November 2018

Participants required for the following study:

What synergies or conflicts exist between current Higher Education Institution Learning Analytics and student wellbeing polices?

As part of an ongoing response to increasing concerns around student wellbeing and mental health UUK, in their September 2017 #StepChange report, recommended the alignment of learning analytics with student wellbeing. However, is it currently possible for these to be aligned?

The aim of this study is to identify the key characteristics of existing policies relating to student wellbeing and learning analytics across the UK Higher Education sector, and the synergies or conflicts that exist between them. This will help to establish whether, at present, learning analytics and student wellbeing initiatives are sufficiently aligned, and if amendments are required to aid alignment.

The study is looking to recruit HEIs who would be willing to share their institutional policies related to student support and wellbeing, and where applicable learning analytics.

For details of the study please view the study’s Information Sheet.

If you would like your institution to participate in the study please complete and return the Registration Form by Monday 21st January 2019.

Participating institutions will be requested to share their policies by Monday 21st January 2019.

Please return competed registration forms either via email (s.ahern@ucl.ac.uk) or by post to the address below:
