Abstract

In an increasingly digital and globalized world, there is growing pressure on higher education institutions and organizations in both the public and private sectors to provide learning and professional development that can be delivered and supported online. This article explores the potential of learning analytics as an evidence-informed strategy to minimize learning failures in professional learning. Using policing in England and Wales as a case study for discussion, the article identifies how learning analytics can be used to design effective learning programmes based on the preferences and engagement of professional learners; track user experience and learning performance; and facilitate a tailored approach to learning tuition and support. The article makes a broad contribution to both contemporary academic debates related to police reform and professional development, as well as broader perspectives related to learning technologies and analytics.
