Guidelines for Running a LASI-Local

Designing your LASI-LOCAL. Design your local event to meet the needs of your context. Most events have been face-to-face, but in past years have included 100% online, and 50/50 blended. They may scale from nations/regions/states, to a small group in your institution translating the big ideas into practical implications. It may be a small discussion group, to an event with your own speakers, agenda-setting workshops, hands-on tutorials and panels. So think glocal, and think about the mix that will work for you and your community.

LASI’s are about field-building, so your LASI should not be a mini-conference, but more training oriented, optionally with a keynote speaker to give a big picture. A member of SoLAR Exec may be available, at least for a remote video keynote.

This is a fantastic platform for you to take a leadership role, and catalyse educators, technologists, researchers, enterprise and policymakers around shaping the next generation of learning infrastructures to truly serve the needs now facing the education sector, and learning more broadly.

You can run your LASI during the week of the US LASI to harness the energy of concurrent events, or at a better time for your community.

LASI will make recordings of sessions available on the SoLAR YouTube channel, aiming for a turnaround of a day or so (details to be confirmed).
