CALL FOR PAPERS
Data Literacy for Learning Analytics Workshop
Learning Analytics and Knowledge 2016
26th April 2016
This interactive workshop session invites participants with diverse technical and non-technical skills to work together to consider how data literacy impacts on learning analytics, both for practitioners and for end users. Learning analytics outcomes can be targeted at a wide range of end users, some of whom will be young students and many of whom are not data specialists.
We invite both full papers and expressions of interest. Accepted long papers will be given a slot for presentation and will be published in the workshop proceedings. The expression of interest will be used to help us better understand the nature of workshop participants' interest in this topic.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Creating dashboards and visualisations for non-data experts
* Making data and algorithms visible as a way to improve collected data and improve peoples data-contributing behaviour
* Does increasing visibility of algorithms change learner behaviour?
* Gaming the learning analytics - do data literate learners start to play the system?
* Visualizing analytic processes for novice users.
Submission of Paper and Expressions of Interest: January 31st 2016
