Running the Data Doubles project can be a challenge at times because the team has to coordinate activities across eight different universities. Some of this is university bureaucracy (doing that many IRB applications!) but some of it is internal to keeping the project running smoothly. One of the keys to Data Doubles’ success is actually […]
As promised, we continue to update our OSF project space with more materials for others to use in their research on students privacy and learning analytics. We just added three new bibliographies.
On behalf of the Data Doubles team, collaborator Abigail Goben presented “In Their Own Words, Student Perspectives on Privacy and Library Participation in Learning Analytics Initiatives” as a Library and Information Technology Association session at the American Library Association Conference in Washington DC.
Kyle Jones, a collaborator on the Data Doubles project, has published three new peer-reviewed journal articles in recent months. Each article addresses various aspects of student privacy in relation to emerging learning analytics practices.
Representing the Data Doubles research team, Andrew Asher gave a presentation entitled, “Do students care? Student perspectives on personal data use in library learning analytics,” at the 10th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

The paper, which can be found in the […]
Data Doubles team member Kristin Briney recently published the article “Data Management Practices in Academic Library Learning Analytics: A Critical Review” in the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication. The article takes a critical look at the data practices in published learning analytics studies from academic libraries. While there are several publications about the ethics […]
The beginnings of the Data Doubles project began with the team’s collaborative work on a SPEC Kit survey for the Association of Research Libraries. The team is happy to announce that the SPEC Kit is now published and an informative webinar is upcoming.
American Libraries has a new article about learning analytics, the collection of data for use in enhancing learning environments, and its potential perils. Though universities have been compiling statistics on students for some time now, such as with retention and residency rates, learning analytics explore a new frontier.
