Doing the right thing with analytics

October 26, 2020 2:19 PM

In the inaugural episode of the Educause Exchange Podcast, Associate Provost and Deputy CIO Bob Carpenter contributes his views on how UMBC should use analytics and predictive models to support students.  In this episode, entitled The Ethical Issues Around Learning Analytics(10 minutes long), he argues that we must not use learning analytics to foreclose opportunities to students.  We must act as an agent for the student, supporting them in the pursuit of their educational goals.  A student’s “grit” matters for their success; our models won’t always capture it.
