LASI-UK a twitter summary

The LASI UK even held last Friday (5 July), brought over 50 people from across the UK to Edinburgh to join in the international learning analytics-fest accompanying the face to face Learning Analtyics Summer Institute being held at Stanford University.

I’m still trying to process all the great presentations and discussions from the day, but to give a flavour of the day I’ve pulled together some of the tweets from the #lasiuk back channel to provide a summary of the day. Martin Hawksey also live blogged the morning and afternoon sessions.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to give a public thank you to Naomi Jeffery and Hannah Jones from the OU Scotland for all their hard work in organising and ensuring the smooth running of the day.

LASI . . . going to many homes

The Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI) is taking place this week at Stanford University. Although I’m not one of the lucky few attending in person, Doug Clow (from the OU UK) is leading the live blogging brigade and I’ve been enjoying catching up with the sessions via all the posts, and looking forward to reading more – thanks guys! A number of the sessions are also being live- streamed via the SOLAR website.

But the action isn’t just in sunny Stanford this week, there are a number of other LASI local events taking place around the world from Hong Kong to Holland and many places in between this week. On Friday the UK LASI event takes place at the University of Edinburgh. Around 60 delegates will debate and demonstrate a range of learning analytics related topics and we’ll also be hooking up live with Stanford as well as catching up with some of the recorded sessions. The event is sold out but there will be a few “well kent” (as the say in Edinburgh) tweeters who will be sharing what’s going on during the day (follow #lasiuk), and I’ll be blogging more next week about the event.
