Indiana University-Indianapolis and research collaborators at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Northwestern University, Oregon State University, Indiana University-Bloomington, and a site facilitator at Linn-Benton Community College will conduct a student-centered, three-year research project to study student perspectives of privacy issues associated with academic library participation in learning analytics initiatives. Learning analytics (LA) is the process of measuring, collecting, analyzing, and reporting student data to understand and optimize learning. Through its research, the team seeks to discover how LA initiatives align with and run counter to student expectations of privacy. With these insights, the team will then explore how libraries might maximize the benefits of LA while respecting student expectations.
