ON PERSONALISED LEARNING: ‘We, as a community of researchers, have not been good at recording some of the very valuable contextual data.’

‘I think it’s potentially really exciting what we could do with learning analytics; i don’t think its exciting at the moment in the main.’

‘A lot of things described as learner analytics are data analytics’

ON DATA: ‘People are a little bit rabbit in the headlines at the moment.’

ON EU: ’We get a significant percentage of our funding from the european union.’

‘We want to work with our European Colleagues as we have a long history of working with them.’

‘We have to think about it very carefully. It is a worry.’

ON AI:
‘I think there are some problems with people’s perceptions of what robotics might do.’

‘I think the future will be one where we work alongside artificially intelligent partners.’
