Things are ramping up to the 8th International Learning Analytics & Knowledge Conference (LAK18), which comes to Sydney next March, the first time it has been hosted in the southern hemisphere. LAK is the primary research conference in the field, and the official conference of the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR).
CIC’s Director Simon Buckingham Shum helped to found the first LAK in 2011, is a former Vice-President of SoLAR, and is serving as Co-Chair of the LAK18 scientific program. In addition, many of the CIC team are serving on the Program Committee, leading Workshops and presenting papers on how we design analytics with and for UTS academics (Simon Knight; Roberto Martinez-Maldonado; Kirsty Kitto; Andrew Gibson; Shibani Antonette; Sophie Abel, Vanessa Echeverria).
The hard work of finding the best work in the world through peer reviewing hundreds of submissions is now complete, and the program is starting to shape up. If you care about how the AI and Data revolution is impacting education, don’t miss this unique opportunity next March to connect with the world’s leading researchers and practitioners, right on our doorstep.
