Widening the Field and Sparks of the Future
This issue of the Journal of Learning Analytics comprises two special issue sections. The first of which presents five papers from the 4th International Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference held in Indianapolis. The second showcases the current or recent work of doctoral students who attended the 2nd Learning Analytics Summer Institute at Harvard University, Boston. The issue also includes two articles in the Hot Spots section, discussing the application of learning analytics initiatives in higher education institutions from different perspectives – broad-scale initiatives to individual course design. The breadth and diversity of the articles covered in this issue demonstrate how the discipline has matured and moved towards understanding student learning to inform pedagogical practice and curricular redesign coupled with strategies for the application and adoption of LA strategies across institutions
