This course helps pre-service teachers to develop knowledge and skills associated with numeracy and learning analytics to better understand students and respond to their learning needs. Pre-service teachers will explore and reflect upon the importance and pervasiveness of numeracy within their specialist subject areas. They will learn to use a range of data sources and relevant literature, in tandem with learning analytics, to understand the diverse learning needs and numerical capabilities of students. In the process, pre-service teachers will identify, analyse and respond to their own numeracy learning needs. Finally, knowledge of learning analytics will be used to interpret assessment data to evaluate students' learning and modify teaching practice.
