The White Supremacy of Library Learning Analytics

I’ve removed this post because it is problematic. I want to thank my colleagues of color for pointing this out to me and educating me.

  • It is a privilege to not see white supremacy in learning analytics research.
  • I jumped into an ongoing conversation without recognizing the work of peers, mostly people of color, who are already working in this area. Just because ideas are new to me does not mean that they are new. (I’ll point you to the work of Yasmeen Shorish if you want to learn more.)
  • I posted something that needed further reflection because I got excited to put something on my blog. Essentially, I tried to get a cookie when no cookies were deserved.

Thank you again to those willing to take time to educate me. I will work to be more thoughtful in the future.
