International Workshop on Orchestrating Learning Analytics (OrLA):

Learning Analytics Adoption at the Classroom Level

In conjunction with LAK 2018 at The University of Sydney, Australia

March 5, 2018


A workshop for researchers, teachers and technology developers that are involved in the adoption of a novel learning analytics solution in a particular context.

Adopting learning analytics solutions in a real setting requires effective identification and communication between different stakeholder communities (including researchers, teachers, students and technology developers). In this half-day collaborative workshop we will look at how LA innovations impact, or are conditioned by, everyday practice at the classroom level (“orchestration”). We will examine examples of LA adoption efforts, discuss them through the lens of classroom orchestration, and further develop frameworks and guidance on what are the knowledge gaps and how mutual understanding can be supported.

We are now accepting submissions about examples of learning analytics adoption and conceptual frameworks to understand such adoption! However, both participants with a paper submission and other members of the LAK community interested in adoption of LA are very welcome in the workshop. Come and participate!
