Call For Papers

LAK 2014.
The 4th International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge
24-28 March 2014, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
http://lakconference.org

Conference theme: Intersection of learning analytics research, theory and
practice The International Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference is
now
in its fourth year! LAK 14 will keep up the momentum generated in the
earlier
meetings as we continue to define who we are as a community and how our
research can inform the important decisions facing education today. We are
experiencing conditions that create a łperfect storm˛ for making analytics
vitally important for supporting learning in our information age. Not only
do
we know more about the basic processes involved in learning, the explosion
of
online technology platforms and services provide new opportunities for
learning
and generate new forms of data about those processes. Coupled with
increasing
societal demands to make learning more accessible and effective for all, we
need scholarly research to ensure that advances in learning technologies and
practices benefit society as a whole. Advances in analytics, data mining and
data visualization promise a way forward for making sense of the massive
amounts of data available so that we can thoughtfully inform learners,
educators, and policy makers. The location for the conference this year,
Indianapolis, is called łThe City at the Crossroads of America.˛
Accordingly,
the theme for LAK 14 focuses on the crossroads, or intersection, of basic
research on learning, learning theory, and educational practice. We invite
papers that address at least one of these foci, but especially encourage
submissions that demonstrate how they fit together in ways that make our
work
relevant to improving learning for people of all ages, leverage the
technologies available to todayąs learners, and scalable within the many
places
where learning occurs. To accomplish these goals, we seek theoretically
motivated papers that utilize analytics to provide direction for
understanding
and supporting learning.

TOPICS

LAK 2014 is seeking contributions in a wide variety of topics. The
overarching
topic is how data can be used to improve any aspect of a learning
experience. As a guidance, the conference will consider any of the following
topics (authors are strongly encouraged to read the instructions on the
conference web site):

- Analytic approaches, methods, and tools for sense-making in learning
analytics.

- Theories and theoretical concepts for understanding learning. Measures of
learning, change and Success.

- Learning activities, applications, and interventions.

- Issues in learning analytics such as ethics, cultural transitions,
capacity
building, etc.

These topics can be studied in a variety of learning scenarios whether:
formal
or informal; face-to-face, blended, or online settings. Proposals are
welcome
from any various application domains be it primary and secondary schools,
higher education, corporate workplace or learning in governmental, military,
health or commercial situations. Focus may be on distance or graduate
education, mobile and ubiquitous learning, online communities, to name a
few.

SUBMISSION TYPES AND FORMAT

The conference accepts the following type of submissions:

- Full papers: 10 pages.
- Short papers: 5 pages.
- Panel proposals: 4 pages plus 2 separated pages with information about the
