Learning Analytics and Data Coaching for Equity in Teaching and Learning

Academic and teaching staff are critical partners who are vital to creating a robust campus community of practitioners who are committed to understanding and employing student and course-level data in ways that support student learning and success. At many institutions, faculty, department chairs, and teaching and learning staff are often not directly included in these data communities and lack access to the training and resources necessary to design meaningful educational experiences that support equitable learning and outcomes for minoritized student groups. APLU provides academic and instructional data coaching to instructional designers, department chairs, and faculty in a one or two semester-long engagement. Each participating institution must include a cross-functional team with faculty who select a critical area of redesign in a gateway or introductory course. Teams will learn from APLU, exemplar faculty and instructional designers, and educational experts how to use learning analytics, student data, and course-level data to inform and improve teaching and learning, to adopt and implement equity center teaching practices, and to assess and continuously improve upon course delivery. Join us and learn how you can utilize data to make meaningful changes in the classroom and create more equitable student outcomes on your campus and in your classrooms.
