Symposium to show how data plus design equals student success

Emory Report | Feb. 17, 2015

Using educational data to promote student success in a number of ways is the focus of a one-day symposium hosted by Emory on Friday, Feb. 20.

The 2015 Southeast Educational Data Symposium (SEEDS), at the Emory Conference Center, will bring together 50 participants representing 20 institutions and every university level including graduate students, staff, faculty and executive leadership.

Emory’s Library and Information Technology Services, the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence, and QuanTM are sponsoring this symposium in partnership with the Society of Learning Analytics (SoLAR). Presentations will examine the use of data to inform decisions about learning environments and instructional design.

Carolyn Rosé, an internationally recognized scholar in learning analytics from Carnegie Mellon University, is the keynote speaker. Her speech will be followed by four panel discussions and lunchtime roundtables. Topics for discussion will include academic analytics and student success, integrated tools and data visualization, learning at scale, and learning analytics and instructional design.
