The Learning and Teaching Podcast Discussion Club is like a book club… but with podcasts!

Instead of reading a book, you’ll listen (in your own time) to a podcast then you’ll join us for a one hour Zoom session on the first Wednesday of the month where we’ll discuss the ideas and issues raised in the episode.

Our next session will be on Wednesday, 3rd March, 2021 at 12 noon via Zoom.

This 19-minute podcast from Deakin University  reminds us that ‘data is new oil’ but that the REAL value of oil (read: data) comes from refinement (read: analysis), not extraction. In the age of the abundance of data, what are some of the practical uses of data analytics for teaching academics?  Among other ideas, the presenter suggests that data can serve as evidence for our recommendations to students, e.g., past students who did activities X and Y by week 4 tended to get higher results in this unit, etc.; and that data can help us identify and remove roadblocks for students.

Enter your email below and we will send you the discussion questions and the Zoom link.
