LEARN Conversation Series
Our Learning Analytics Conversation Series uses an interactive format to bring experts from across the field together in conversation about cutting-edge topics, issues and challenges in learning analytics. Two invited speakers first each share a short overview of their distinct approach and work in the area. This creates a foundation for a moderated dialogue about commonalities, differences and emergent high-level principles. The end of the session reserves time to discuss questions from the audience.
Our Spring 2022 Conversations have already taken place. You can check out the recording and slides for Using Multimodal Learning Analytics to Address the Challenges of Online Collaboration and Bigger than Just A Course: Using Analytics to See and Improve Educational Degrees on our Past Events Page.
Stay tuned for the announcement of our Fall 2022 Conversations. If you have an idea for a topic, issue or challenge in learning analytics that would make for an interesting conversation, you can share your suggestions with us on this Google Form.
ACM Conference on Learning at Scale (L@S)
The ACM Conference on Learning at Scale (L@S) is an interdisciplinary and progressive event that brings together those interested in investigating large-scale, technology-mediated learning environments. L@S 2022 will take place at Cornell Tech’s Roosevelt Island Campus in New York City from June 1-3, 2022 with the theme of “Blending @ Scale." We are pleased that LEARN Core Faculty Xavier Ochoa is helping to organize this year’s event as one of the Program Chairs.
LEARN @ LASI22
LASI (the Learning Analytics Summer Institute) is an educational event designed to accelerate the maturation of the discipline organized by the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR). It will take place online from June 13 to June 17, 2022. LEARN organized two workshops and one training at LASI22.
Multimodal Learning Analytics for In-Person and Remote Collaboration
June 13, 15 and 17, 2022
2 - 4 pm PT
LEARN core faculty Xavier Ochoa will instruct this workshop targeted toward researchers that have some experience with traditional Learning Analytics and want to expand their capabilities to physical learning spaces. This workshop is a gentle introduction to Multimodal Learning Analytics (MMLA): its promises, its challenges, its tools and methodologies. It will include a hands-on learning experience analyzing different types of signals captured from real environments emphasizing strategies, techniques, and constructs related to collaboration analytics.
Human Centered Learning Analytics
June 13, 15 and 17, 2022
7 - 9 am PT
LEARN doctoral students, Juan Pablo Sarmiento and Fabio Campos organized this workshop to help anyone with or without experience in human-centered design learn how human-centered design methods can be applied to learning analytics contexts. Building from the growing interest in designing Learning Analytics (LA) systems with stakeholders, this workshop seeks to build on the momentum and share insights around the contributions that Human-Centered Design theory and practice make to LA system conception, design, implementation, and evaluation.
Power to the User: Using Participatory Design to develop Learning Analytics tools
June 14 and 16, 2022
12 - 2 pm PT
For a second year in a row, LEARN doctoral students, Juan Pablo Sarmiento and Fabio Campos will train beginners to human-centered design interested in developing Learning Analytics tools or implementating participatory processes on how to involve stakeholders in design processes to empower them and to render tools which are adjusted to their needs, routines and values. In this tutorial, they will present a number of processes, frameworks and examples for engaging in participatory design processes with students, faculty or administrators, emphasizing both opportunities and challenges. Participants will work with a current or past project to develop first steps to an outline for a participatory design process.
Other Learning Analytics Webinar Series
There are multiple excellent online events about learning analytics taking place on an ongoing basis. If you have other great learning analytics events you think should be added to this list, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
