Canvas Analytics Exploratory Community of Practice

About Us

An exploratory professional learning community (PLC), organized by Teaching & Learning Technologies (TLT) that seeks to (1) identify and discuss ways that learning analytics are being utilized in Higher Education; and (2) explore potential research efforts & projects using Canvas Analytics. The Canvas Analytics CoP meets monthly from March –December 2018 to examine current projects at Emory University and other schools dealing with: institutional trends & changes, student engagement, and student learning. In January 2019, our group can decide to dissolve, or extend the meetings with a new 2019 charter.
