************************************************
Dear Learning Analytics enthusiasts,
On the 30th of June until 1th of July, the 2nd Learning Analytics Summer
Institute in the Netherlands (#LASI-NL) will be organised in conjunction with the
Computer Assisted Learning Conference CAA2014 (http://caaconference.co.uk/).
After a very successful LASI-Amsterdam in 2013, we wish to foster the Dutch
Learning Analytics community and their research efforts with this local event. The
event is part of a global network of LASI events
(http://www.solaresearch.org/events/lasi-2/lasi2014/) that will be hold at that time in
different locations over in the world.
Several key researchers from the European projects such as the FP7 Projects LACE
(www.laceproject.eu) and WatchMe (http://www.project-watchme.eu) as well as the
Open Source community Apereo Foundation (http://www.apereo.org/) will present
their approach and research agenda towards Learning Analytics. Furthermore, we
will have some collaboration between the CAA conference and the local LASI event
through a Special Track of Learning Analytics in e-Assessment and a panel discuss
on the future of e-assessment in times of Learning Analytics.
We expressly invite people that are new to the field to engage with the Dutch
research community around Learning Analytics. LASI-NL tries to bring researchers
together in a two-day summer school to foster synergies between national and
international research efforts in the field. You are invited to join and exchange your
expertise and experiences and contribute constructively to the Learning Analytics
community.
The two days will be split into two different topics:
1. Practitioner day (30th of June). This track is looking at barriers to adoption,
stakeholder requirements, instructional design and methods.
2. Data Wrangler day (1st of July) is focused on the pragmatic issues for practitioners
in the field such as insight over tooling, what are the standards needed to
build infrastructure within a University and a workshop on getting data out of
your LMS (e.g.: BlackBoard) and using.
