Active teaching, broadly defined, is anything other than traditional lecturing, where there is only a teacher-centered "sage on the stage" and students are passive in their learning. Many people (correctly) assume that active learning has positives effects on student learning outcomes, but how do you give evidence to indicate the validity to this statement? In this talk, we will give a couple of examples of how we used learning analytics to show how technology enhanced active learning pedagogies, implemented in lecture or tutorial, may improve student learning outcomes.

Dr Henry Chan, Facilitator of CoP on Learning Analytics will also share his experience in using MS Forms for learning analytics purposes.

This activity is jointly organised by the CoP on Conducting Learning Analytics to Inform Teaching and Learning and EDC.
