We're delighted to be hosting a week long series of events bringing together colleagues from across the university and leading researchers from the UK and Europe.

How long have you worked with the Centre?
I joined the team in 2016 to work on a cross-European project – SHEILA (Supporting Higher Education to Integrate Learning Analytics). Since 2018, I have started to work on two new projects: LALA (Building Capacity to Use Learning Analytics to Improve Higher Education in Latin America)and EMBED (Developing a European Maturity Model for Blended Education).
