LACE SoLAR Flare 2015 on Oct 9th

After a successful meeting of people interested in learning analytics last year, the Learning Analytics Community Exchange (LACE) project will be holding a another exciting SoLAR Flare event at The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK, on Friday October 9, 2015 from 9:30am to 4:45pm.

This is a networking gathering for everyone interested in learning analytics. Under the auspices of the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR) and organised by Europe’s Learning Analytics Community Exchange (LACE), this event forms part of an international series. SoLAR Flares provide opportunities to learn what’s going in learning analytics research and practice, to share resources and experience, and to forge valuable new connections.

The theme for this SoLAR Flare is “Research into Practice” with the day designed to maximise social learning including:

  • a chance to introduce yourself and what you want to know about learning analytics
  • plenty of opportunities to meet with peers and explore collaboration possibilities
  • the chance to hear — and share — lightning updates on what’s happening (volunteer to do one on the registration form)
  • time to explore the future of learning analytics

The day will also include opportunities to learn about how learning analytics are being put into practice in both formal and informal learning environments. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Chris Ballard, Innovation Consultant, Tribal Labs
  • Bart Rienties, Reader in Learning Analytics, The Open University, UK
  • Doug Clow, Senior lecturer at The Open University, UK
  • Patrick McAndrew, Director of the Institute for Educational Technology (IET) at The Open University, UK
