Learning Analytics (Late) Summer Institute

September 28-29, 2017

Hosted by: Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology (SLATE) 

University of Bergen, Norway

We hereby invite PhD-students, academics, researchers, educators, shool/university leaders, learning entrepreneurs, and other learning professionals with interest in the Learning Analytics field to participate in our local LASI event.


The LASI-Nordic draws together the Nordic learning analytics community to learn from experts, to share research and experience, and to investigate if there is a Nordic approach to learning analytics.  Over two days there will be keynote talks, hands-on workshops, tutorials, panels, and a firehose & poster/demo session, in which to participate. First and foremost, however, LASI-Nordic 2017 will be a chance for participants to share, discuss, and shape how the Nordic countries use/want to use Learning Analytics to improve learning and teaching. Furthermore, the aim is to facilitate collaboration and sharing of knowledge on learning Analytics within the Nordic community, and determine if there is interest in developing a Nordic Special Interest Group (SIG) on Learning Analytics.

What is a LASI ?

Sponsored by the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR), the Learning Analytics Summer Institutes (LASI) have become established in the last years as an awareness-raising, capacity-building, international network of events, where researchers and practitioners can meet to learn new methods, to share their work, and envision the future.

This LASI is part of the Learning Analytics Summer Institute run by the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR).
