The Scottish Higher Education Enhancement Committee (SHEEC) agreed at its 18th September 2017 meeting that the new Enhancement Theme would be Evidence for Enhancement: Improving the Student Experience. It was proposed that groups of institutions would work collectively together as Collaborative Clusters on an area related to the Theme that would be beneficial to their own institution but has the potential to add value for the whole sector.QAA Scotland provided support for the facilitation of scoping activity workshops that brought institutions together with a shared interest in the key area of learning analytics. The purpose of these workshops was to create the space for institutions that are committed to specific areas related to the Theme to come together, and discuss in detail what areas of work they are keen to pursue in collaboration with other institutions.This presentation will report the collaborative cluster formed through these workshops, the work of these clusters, and outline the anticipated outcomes and impact as a result of this work.Key messages:1. Knowledge of the learning analytics collaborative cluster work to be undertaken in Years 2 & 3 of the Theme.2. An overview of strands of learning analytics work, their activities and anticipated outcomes.3. An understanding of how a scoping workshop approach can be used as a method to facilitate collaborative working.
