Indiana University’s Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS) is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of its learning analytics grants. This year, a cohort of twelve instructors will conduct research projects using big data and student learning analytics to foster student engagement, retention, and success at Indiana University.
The From Insights to Action (FIAC) grant is designed for faculty teams to use data to create actionable plans to improve student success within a given department or program. The Learning Analytics Fellows grant is for any IUB faculty member, regardless of rank, to use analytical data to further student achievement and success at the course, program, or institutional levels.
This year’s winners include faculty from the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the School of Public Health, the School of Music, IUB Libraries, the Department of Second Language Studies, and the Department of Economics.
“This is by far some of the most ambitious research projects we have seen to date,” said George Rehrey, the director of CLASS. “We look forward to how these projects will improve student success throughout the university.”
CLASS funds faculty research annually through a proposal selection process. Since 2015, the center has funded 62 faculty members from 25 different programs who have conducted 70 research projects. In any given year, approximately 5 million records generated by 110,000 students are available to the fellows for their scholarly research.
