Colorado State University (CSU), University of Northern Colorado (UNC), and the University of Colorado (CU) are joining forces to host a local Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI-Local).

CSU’s Center for the Analytics of Learning and Teaching (C-ALT) with support from the Society of Learning Analytics Research (SOLAR) will host the first meeting of the LASI (local)-Rocky Mountains. Our first LASI is planned for June 12-13 at the CSU campus in Fort Collins. LASI-Rocky Mountains is part of the Learning Analytics Summer Institute run by the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR).  SoLAR is an inter-disciplinary network of leading international researchers who are exploring the role and impact of analytics on teaching, learning, training and development.

At this LASI, we will share our ongoing research and discuss how we can continue to support each other’s efforts. We will then move into a discussion around ethical concerns we face as learning analytics researchers and work towards forming a code of ethical practice to share with the research community at large.
