LAK16: Monday

Liveblog notes from the Sixth International Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge LAK16, 25-29 April 2016, University of Edinburgh. Monday is the first day of pre-conference workshops, and I’m in, Cross-LAK: Workshop on learning analytics across physical and digital spaces.

The workshop is in St Leonard’s Hall, University of Edinburgh, which is an amazing building: a Scots baronial former school, St. Trinnean’s School for Girls, the inspiration for the fictional St Trinian’s – and this workshop is in a room named after it.

ECTEL2015 Mon a.m. (1): Lisa Marie Blaschke Keynote

Liveblog notes from EC-TEL2015 (#ectel2015) in Toledo, Spain, 16-19 September 2015.

Tomaž Klobucar welcomes everyone. Introduces Katherine Maillet, President of EA-TEL, gives a bit of history. Bringing together disparate fields that contribute to technology-enhanced learning, through Networks of Excellence. Program chairs: always two, there are, one in learning sciences, another in computer sciences. Joint research, building communities of practice. SIGs.

Christoph Rensing has a video message thanking everyone for the contribution to the organisation of the conference. Gráinne Conole also can’t make it and welcomes everyone in a video message.

Tomaž gives some outlines about the reviewing process. Most papers from Germany, then UK. Full paper acceptance rate 21%.

Carlos Delgado Kloos, local organiser gives some local information.  El Greco was born in Crete and died in Toledo, 401 years ago. EC-TEL started in Crete but is hopefully not going to die here in Toledo. Practical local arrangements for the conference. We are in the Spanish press, apparently. He thanks everyone who’s helping out locally.
