Unprecedented amounts of data are collected by technology in education. Learning analytics reveals hidden insights from this information to optimise learning and its environments.

The cross-faculty Centre for Learning Analytics at Monash (CoLAM) is a world-leader in learning analytics – and a globally-renowned hub for educating students and professionals in this area. Gathering top expertise in education and technology from around the world, the Centre undertakes applied research to directly inform public policy and its implications for education practice.

The Hub for Educational Design and Innovation (HEDI) in the Faculty of Education is the home of passionate researchers and educators who are reimagining higher education and professional learning. The Hub’s mission is to improve the access, opportunities, experience and success of all learners. Scholars in the Hub achieve this by driving the innovative transformation of learning designs, technologies, environments and communities.

Reimagining Higher Education and Professional Learning

Conceptual PlayLab tests ground-breaking play-based models for teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics to young children. Funded by a $3.2 million ARC Laureate Fellowship, the project aims to create significant shifts in the ways STEM concepts are taught in early childhood in Australia, and around the world.
