LASI 2015 Bilbao: Learning Analytics Summer Institute
Tuesday, 19 May 2015

The Learning Analytics Summer Institute 2015 Bilbao will take place in June 22nd and 23rd, 2015.

Learning Analytics (LA) is included in one of the objectives of the eMadrid network. Learning Analytics (LA) is a research area that brings together experts in very diverse subjects (educational technology, artificial intelligence, education, data mining or psychology, etc.) with managers, administrators, politicians and companies related to formal and informal education. Making the most of the increasing amount of data students and teachers leave when they interact with learning technologies is one of its main goals. However, LA has also created high expectations about the possibility of adapting the student learning path, developing recommendation systems, personalized learning and formative assessment. In summary, there is an interesting debate about the impact of LA in education.
