    Abstract

    This poster presents a summary of an Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching strategic commissioned project titled Learning Analytics: Assisting Universities with Student Retention. The project was descriptive and exploratory, with data collection occurring between July, 2014 and March, 2015. A mixed method design was employed. The project occurred at a time when many institutions were actively exploring their options so a primary focus was on highlighting crucial issues in relation to learning analytics implementation. Following the data collection phase, a framework and accompanying set of discussion questions were developed to emphasise the importance of systematic discussion in making sense of and harnessing the opportunities afforded by learning analytics for student retention purposes.
