Apologies for cross-postings

As we received multiple requests to extend the deadline of the workshop, we have extended the deadline for the submission of papers to the XLA workshop until 7 July 2019 12 pm CET.


XLA19: First workshop on generating explainable and actionable insights for learning analytics, organized at the 14th European conference on technology enhanced learning



Currently, the Learning Analytics (LA) domain is maturing and often provides insights in, and recommendations of, learning and teaching behaviors. Nevertheless, these insights by itself are not enough. Before the insights can actually impact learning, they have to be interpretable and actionable. To be interpretable, the outcomes of the data analysis, visualization, and/or algorithms have to be tailored to the end-users. While advanced visualization and/or machine learning techniques might create accurate and trustworthy insights and recommendations, they will not be per se trusted by the user. Opening the black-box of learning analytics to the user, in a user-tailored fashion is the first step towards obtaining interpretable insights and explainable recommendations. Approaches for obtaining transparency, trustworthiness, persuasiveness, and effectiveness are key.

The goal of our workshop is to build a strong research capacity around approaches to generate and explain actionable insights for learning analytics. The longer-term goal is to to advance the research and practices around the creation of actionable insights and explainable recommendations in the domain of Learning Analytics.
