Welcome to the Design LAK16 workshop!

Where and when?  

25th of April 2016 , part of  the 6th International Learning Analytics & Knowledge (LAK16) Conference Edinburgh, Scotland.

What for?
This workshop is about the theory and practice of learning design for scaled courses like MOOCs.

It aims to take stock of the field, assessing where it is up to, and where it might go next.

In spirit it is research-based, future oriented, and aimed at establishing the learning analytics community as central to design for quality teaching and learning. Read more here
