Edinburgh, UK, 26 April 2016
You are invited to submit a paper or demonstration to the 1st international workshop on Learning Analytics for Learners (http://css-kmi.tugraz.at/mkrwww/leas-box/lakws16/home.html), that will be held on the 26th April 2016, during the LAK conference at Edinburgh, UK.
This workshop will bring together researchers in learning analytics and open learner modelling to discuss and focus research towards learning analytics for use by learners, to further their learning. Workshop themes will include: learning analytics dashboards for learning; open learner models; and use cases and applications in learning analytics for learners. Sessions will include interactive presentations of accepted papers, demonstrations and discussions focussed around the workshop themes. We aim to raise awareness of research in related fields, and help participants build on these and each other’s research. A primary goal is to foster new research collaborations.
The first objective of this workshop is to bring together people working in learning analytics generally, open learner models and learning dashboards, to raise awareness of projects and approaches across research areas, that are relevant to learning analytics for learners. The second objective of this workshop will be to organise a state of the art review on learning analytics for learners for the Journal of Learning Analytics, to be co-authored with key participants at the workshop. This will aim to cover the themes in the first objective, but may be adapted to incorporate expertise and interests of workshop participants. Finally, we aim to continue supporting research on learning analytics for learners in future workshops, and would like to gather suggestions for key topics for the next LAL proposal. This will allow us to foster and stimulate ideas in areas of interest to participants that may not yet be mature enough for inclusion in the review article or workshop proceedings.
