On the 4th and 5th of July the ICTO-FNWI hosts the Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI-Amsterdam) in collaboration with SURFacademy and the SURF SIG Learning Analytics. Feel welcome to join this event! During the two-days meeting four different themes that are important in the application of Learning Analytics on educational practice will be discussed: (1) Tracking the learning process, (2) Instructional Design, (3) Analytics, Metrics and Research, and (5) Moving the Community Forward.
The Learning Analytics is a rapidly upcoming field with a high potential for teaching and learning. Different forms of expertise and different perspectives on Learning Analytics still need to fully interact with each other in order to assure that the knowledge and desires of different stakeholders is spread throughout the community. LASI-Amsterdam tries to accelerate this process by bringing these together in a two-day meeting, a so called Summer Institute. The event is part of a global initiative and is connected to the Learning Analytics Summer Institute at Stanford University and to eight other locations in the world with a LASI-local event.

- Tracking the learning process,
