Tan, Michael; Lee, Shu-Shing; Ng, Zhi Ying – Learning: Research and Practice, 2017
While the Silicon Valley aphorism would encourage all involved in design to 'fail early so that one can succeed earlier', such a concept may be hard to translate to classroom instructional strategies, especially due to the negative connotations of failure in school settings. Failures in design serve a somewhat distinct purpose from failures in…

Reimann, Peter – Learning: Research and Practice, 2016
This paper argues that learning analytics (LA) can make contributions to learning research, in addition to aiming for improvements in learning and teaching practices in a solely applied sense. Indeed, there is potential for transforming learning research if certain approaches developed in LA were used more extensively to study learning. The…
