Learning Analytics has been distinguishing itself as one of the fields of learning technologies with the highest growth in the last years. This growth and attention has to do with the fact that Learning Analytics has become a multidisciplinary area where computer scientists, learning researchers, educational managers and practitioners can all cohabit. Learning Analytics aims to use the knowledge developed by these different professionals not just to understand, but also to improve learning processes. Through the analysis of digital and analogical traces left by students and professors during the process of teaching and learning, researchers of this field extract key indicators that allow for the development of systems and tools that are able to improve the effectiveness of the process itself.

This new field of investigation has been widely developed in Anglo Saxon countries. USA, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia are amongst the main contributors to this domain. Latin America is also starting to measure and optimize teaching and learning processes through Learning Analytics; however, the existing efforts in this direction are very isolated as there is a lack of a regional community to foster the interchange of ideas, methodologies, tools and local results in the field. In 2015, during the 4th Brazilian Conference of Informatics in Education (CBIE) and the X Latin American Conference on Learning Objects and Technologies (LACLO), the First Latin American Workshop on Learning Analytics (LALA’15) was organized as a forum for researchers of Learning Analytics in Latin America to meet each other and share their investigations. The aim of the present Call for papers is twofold, first, to widespread the best papers presented at LALA’15, and second, to enable other Learning Analytics groups from Latin America to present their research work to the international community.

Proposals Due Friday, February 26, 2016
The Association of American Colleges and Universities is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for AAC&U’s 2016 Conference on Global Learning in College.

AAC&U invites proposals that examine how faculty, student affairs educators, and all campus sectors are working individually and collaboratively to advance student understanding of, commitment to, and agency for effectively and meaningfully engaging the global issues of their time. Proposals that showcase evidence-based practices that reflect any of the themes below, and that can be adapted readily to a wide range of institutional types, including community colleges and minority-serving institutions, are encouraged.
