Event Details

Join us in the Berrill Theatre and online on Tuesday 30 January, 6:00 - 7:00pm for the Inaugural Lecture of Professor Bart Rientes: The power of learning analytics to give students (and teachers) what they want!

We are delighted to invite you to Professor Bart Rienties’ inaugural lecture, The power of learning analytics to give students (and teachers) what they want! in which he will focus, in particular, on how his research in learning analytics aims to understand how we can provide a better learning experience for each student based upon big and small data.

Bart Rienties is Professor of Learning Analytics at the Institute of Educational Technology (IET) at The Open University. He is programme director Learning Analytics within IET and head of Data Wranglers, whereby he leads of group of learning analytics academics who conduct evidence-based research and sense making of Big Data at the OU.

As educational psychologist, he conducts multi-disciplinary research on work-based and collaborative learning environments and focuses on the role of social interaction in learning, which is published in leading academic journals and books. His primary research interests are focussed on Learning Analytics, Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, and the role of motivation in learning. Furthermore, Bart is interested in broader internationalisation aspects of higher education. He has successfully led a range of institutional/national/European projects and received a range of awards for his educational innovation projects.

Bart is World Champion Transplant cycling Team Time Trial 2017, the first academic with a transplant to be promoted to full professor, and a keen explorer of life.

In The power of learning analytics to give students (and teachers) what they want!, Bart will describe how his research into learning analytics is enabling him to predict which learning strategy might work best for each student, and provide different, unique experiences for each depending on what they want. In particular, he will explore how student dispositions like motivation, emotion, or anxiety encourages or hinders effective online learning, and how we may need to adjust our approaches depending on individual differences.
