On Monday this week 2nd year PhD student Simon Knight co-chaired a full day workshop at the International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) in Boulder, on Learning Analytics for Learning and Becoming in Practice. The workshop website (including all accepted papers) is available hosted by KMi here and provides further information regarding the themes of the day, as well as a static copy of collaborative notes taken during the course of the workshop.

The day brought together a set of experts in the fields of learning sciences and learning analytics, alongside early career researchers and practitioners, to discuss how developing analytic techniques might relate to learning theory around notions of 'practice' and 'process'. The workshop provided a bridge between learning analytics and the learning sciences, and was the first learning analytics workshop at an ISLS conference. It's hoped the conversations will continue, including in a special issue of the Journal of Learning Analytics.
