About LEA

Learner Engagement Analytics (LEA) is concerned with combining different types of data in order to better understand, and take action to improve, the learning experiences of our learners. At Queen Mary this will include data generated by our Virtual Learning Environment (QMplus), learner information systems (eg MySIS), library systems and other sources related to learning and teaching.

Our Statement of LEA Principles

  • We will use Learner Analytics to help all learners reach their full academic potential.
  • We will be transparent about data collection, sharing, consent and responsibilities.
  • We will abide by ethical principles and align with our university strategy, policies and values.
  • Learner Analytics will be supported by focused staff and learner development activities.
  • Learner Analytics will not be used to inform significant action at an individual level without human intervention.
  • We will actively work to recognise and address any potential negative impacts from Learner Analytics.

What you can do

A Community of Practice (CoP) is simply a group of people who come together around a common interest. They discuss, share and solve problems through the creation of new knowledge. Whether you are already deeply engaged with LEA research or have just started to read about it and find it interesting, we already consider you an important part of the Queen Mary LEA CoP as we move to embed it at the university.

Get in touch

If you are interested in formalising your affiliation with our new LEA CoP and receiving invites to working groups, meetings and events, please get in touch.
