“From learning to classroom analytics”: 1st international workshop of the TELS chair

The workshop “From learning to classroom analytics” will be held on November 16 and 17. This International Colloquium is connected to the Chair Technology-Enhanced Learning Spaces (TELS) funded by I-SITE ULNE and aims to increase cross-border collaborations on research projects related to Learning Analytics and Learning Spaces. 

The objective is to make the connection between both concepts as we should broaden the scope of analytics, modelling not only the learners interactions with the digital tool/technology, but anything that may happen in this specific ecosystem called a classroom or learning space by using multimodal analytics. For this reason the Colloquium is entitled “From learning to classroom analytics”.

The event wants to bring together researchers from 3i partner institutions and institutions in the cross-border region working on learning analytics and learning spaces. This event aims to make the connections between all of the projects and create a strong network on learning space & analytics within the region and we hope to set up new collaborations (e.g. European research projects, symposium at EARLI conference).

The event foresees to schedule enough space for discussion about further collaboration. The first edition is a invite only event, but we hope off course that we will be able to organize this event on a yearly or biennial basis, including an open call for contribution in the following years.

We feel honoured to present two international keynotes at our event who will share the latest insights on classroom analytics and multimodal learning analytics.

Lille Learning Lab inauguration

Inauguration of the Lille Learning Lab spaces on September 22 at 5pm!

The open house, originally scheduled for September 22-24, will be held at a later date due to the global shortage of electronic components.

International colloquium on learning spaces and learning analytics

This first international colloquium is a concrete expression of the dynamics aiming to encourage the emergence of new joint projects between the ITEC research team and the I-SITE research projects. 

Participation in this first international conference will be open to all. It will be launched by an international speaker. ITEC researchers and those working on I-SITE funded projects on learning spaces and analytics will be invited to present and share their research. This event is intended to occur on an annual or biennial basis, including an open call for papers for future editions.
