Utrecht University has incorporated Learning Analytics (LA) in its strategic plan: We will deploy learning analytics in order to further improve the quality of teaching, student counselling and guidance, and teaching materials. We will reinforce the relevant infrastructure and develop accompanying policy that takes the GDPR, privacy issues and ethical guidelines into account.

To realise these ambitions, a central team LA has been created. The team works on creating facilities to employ LA in a safe and transparent way, for example by developing a policy for LA and a general privacy statement for LA. To contact us, email
