Since September 2018 I’ve been working as Associate Director (Interdisciplinarity and Advanced Training) with the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS). This graduate school unites sixteen universities across Scotland to be the UK's largest facilitator of funding, training and support for doctoral students in the social sciences.
SHEILA project MOOC
The 3-week MOOC based on the findings and research outputs of the EU-funded SHEILA (Supporting Higher Education to Integrate Learning Analytics) project will begin on Tuesday 20th November 2018. The course will address areas of concern associated with the use of learning analytics such as responsibility, privacy, consent, accountability, adaptibility, interoperability, and personalisation. It will also discuss the benefits (optimising learning strategies, personalising feedback) of integrating learning analytics in higher education.

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).
