*Call for papers: LAP workshop*

*Graz, Austria, 18-19 October 2016*

*i-KNOW conference*

You are invited to submit a paper or demonstration to the *workshop on
Learning Analytics in Practice: Challenges, Visions, Solutions* ( that will be held on
the 18-19 October 2016, during the i-KNOW conference at Graz, Austria.

Learning analytics and educational data mining have become mainstream
research topics, with Workshop Topic: Educational technologies are
advancing rapidly; new solutions and online platforms appear every day.
Mobile learning, learning on demand and media rich curricula are recent
buzz words describing the “techno-pedagogical” state of the art. And not
least, the research and development community is encircled by the hovering
spirit of “big data”, learning analytics and educational data mining. In
educational practice, there is an increasing conceptual change towards a
formative evaluation and support of learners and a strong orientation to
competencies and meta-competencies such as the so-called 21st century
skills. There is no doubt, that the pace and mode of learning must adapt to
ever fast changing societal challenges.

The first objective of this workshop is to bring together people working in
learning analytics generally, open learner models, and learning dashboards,
to raise awareness of projects and approaches across research areas, that
are relevant to learning analytics for learners. The second objective of
this workshop is to initiate a state of the art review on learning
analytics for learners for the Journal of Learning Analytics, to be
co-authored with key participants at the workshop. This will aim to cover
the themes in the first objective, but may be adapted to incorporate
expertise and interests of workshop participants. The third objective of
the workshop is to identify the visions and challenges for applying recent
technologies in educational practice – today and tomorrow. Ultimately, the
outcomes of the workshop shall establish a practical guide for educators
making the most of the digital information they have or can get about their
students’ learning.

All submissions must be done via Easychair (

*Important dates*:

Deadline for submission: 31st July 2016

Acceptance notification: 22nd August 2016

LAP Workshop and i-KNOW conference: 18-19th October 2016
