Presentations

We are actively seeking to present our IMLS-funded work and related research at professional and scholarly conferences, as well as at institutional and organizational meetings. Forthcoming and past presentations are listed below with brief abstracts and links to slides when available.

Forthcoming

Jones, K. M. L., Perry, M., Goben, A., Asher, A., Briney, K. A., Robertshaw, M. B., & Salo, D. (2019, April). In their own words: Student perspectives on library participation in learning analytics initiatives. The Annual Meeting of the Association of College and Research Libraries, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Libraries are pursuing LA insights to evaluate the impact of library services, collections, and spaces on student learning. But as institutions continue to surface granular data and information about student life, the risk to student privacy grows. This presentation addresses what students think of learning analytics and how such practices intersect with their privacy expectations based on qualitative data originating from eight institutions who conducted interviews with undergraduate students.

Past

Perry, M. R., Robertshaw, M. B., Asher, A., Briney, K. A., Goben, A., Jones, K. M. L., Salo, D. (2018, December) Library participation in learning analytics initiatives: Library and student perspectives. Library Assessment Conference, Houston, TX, USA.

This presentation will discuss the initial findings of a survey of the Association of Research Libraries member libraries on policies and procedures around LA initiatives and data. It will also share initial findings from phase one of the Data Doubles three-year research project.

Goben, A., Perry, M., Asher, A., Briney, K. A., Jones, K. M. L., Robertshaw, M. B., Salo, D. (2018). Library participation in learning analytics initiatives: Library and student perspectives. OCLC Americas Regional Council Conference, Chicago, IL.

This presentation will discuss the initial findings of a survey of the Association of Research Libraries member libraries on policies and procedures around LA initiatives and data. It will also share initial findings from phase one of the Data Doubles three-year research project, which addresses questions about how LA initiatives align with and counter to student expectations of privacy, and how libraries might maximize the benefits of learning analytics while respecting student privacy expectations.
