We have the data - we collect it from many sources and it tells us lots of different things. But what about if we were to provide innovative teaching and learning, and a classroom space that incorporates new technologies at its very heart, to track the impact on our students? Flipped learning excites and engages people, and builds learning communities. Our project will use learning analytics to follow our students progress through their course, when they are taught in this way, in a specially modified classroom. From their engagement with the VLE, to their use of the library resources, to attendance, retention and achievement, we will chart their learning journey. We will also use data and feedback from tutors on how the project has affected their teaching practice too, for a 360 degree view on how we can best engage and inspire our learners, in the digital age.
