Shane Dawson Interview – Learning Analytics Needs a Solid Evidence Base


In this short interview Shane Dawson, from the University of South Australia, talks about how the field of learning analytics is developing especially in the area of privacy and ethics where new policies are being written and adopted. In the future he believes there will be more personalisation and implementation of LA at the whole institution level. Building a “solid evidence base” will be a key part of consolidating the field. This interview was recorded at the LAK15 conference by Tore Hoel, Hendrik Drachsler and Maren Scheffel and is available on the LACE YouTube channel.
