Conference Call for Papers

For the 13th Annual conference, we encourage authors to address the following questions related to LAK23's theme of "Towards Trustworthy Learning Analytics:

What are the essential components of building a trustworthy LA system?
How do we give diverse stakeholders a voice in defining what will make LA trustworthy?
How can we develop and evaluate instruments or frameworks for measuring the trustworthiness of a LA system?
Is there anything distinctive about trustworthiness in teaching and learning or can we borrow unproblematically from notions of trustworthiness from other fields?
How can we develop models or frameworks that can measure the fairness, bias, transparency or explainability level of a LA system?
How do we develop human-in-the-loop predictive or prescriptive analytics that benefit from instructor judgement?
How can we enable students or instructors to share their perceptions of the level of trustworthiness of a LA system?
How can we reliably and transparently model student competencies?
Other topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Implementing Change in Learning & Teaching:

Ethical issues around learning analytics: Analysis of issues and approaches to the lawful and ethical capture and use of educational data traces; tackling unintended bias and value judgements in the selection of data and algorithms; perspectives and methods that empower stakeholders.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
