LASI Spain 2021

Learning Analytics Summer Institute Spain 2021 (LASI Spain 21) Hybrid – Barcelona, July 7-9 2021 Learning Analytics in times of COVID-19: Opportunity from crisis One year after the declaration of COVID-19 as a world pandemic by the WHO, the virus outbreak has changed the landscape of education. Instructors from educational institutions across different levels (K-12, Higher Education) had to shift to emergency remote teaching overnight. In most cases, this change has entailed (forceful) adoption of blended learning and online learning approaches. However, the benefits and adequacy of these approaches to the “new normal” also comes at a cost: as learning […]

Webinar: The fundamental advantage of temporal networks in collaborative learning (Mohammed Saqr)

The next SNOLA (Spanish Network Of Learning Analytics) webinar will take place on April 22nd at 16:00h. Enter this link to see more information. Overview: There have been remarkable efforts in studying collaborative, social and learning networks using Social Network Analysis. Such efforts have demonstrated the wealth of insights that network analysis could bring. However, the majority of network analysis research has used static networks, i.e., aggregated networks that compile interactions without taking time into account. Therefore, temporal networks have emerged as a subfield of network science that is concerned with the study of time-ordered interactions. As a paradigm, temporal […]

Learning Analytics track at TEEM 2020 conference

You can consult here the full call for papers for the Learning Analytics track at TEEM 2020 conference. Last editions of the learning analytics track, one of the conclusions of the track was that variety (of topics, techniques, data sources, contexts, users) was necessary for the field to expand and advance, at the peril of a fragmentation that now seems inevitable. The fragmented landscape of learning analytics has its own perks, though. Nearly eight years after the first Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference, we have now a clearer view of all the different aspects, technologies, algorithms and scope of application of learning […]

LA-SIG Webinar – Design principles for human-centered actionable learning analytics

The last webinar by Yannis Dimitriadis, entitled Design principles for human-centered actionable learning analytics, can be consulted here. Abstract Designing for effective and efficient pedagogical interventions and orchestration in complex Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) ecosystems is an increasingly challenging issue. In spite of the significant potential of Learning Analytics (LA) research, it is still unclear how can LA be designed to position teachers as designers of effective interventions and orchestration actions. This talk argues for Human-Centered Design (HCD) and orchestration of actionable learning analytics. It provides a review of needs and existing approaches for HCD in LA is provided, and it proposes […]
