Learning Analytics: Time for adoption?

Learning Analytics has been called to improve learning practice by transforming the ways we develop and carry out learning and teaching activities and processes. The Horizon Report 2019 considers Learning Analytics a technology ready for short-term adoption, a signal of the maturity this area has reached in a relatively short period of time. However, many challenges still remain to reach all the potential benefits attributed to this field, and there exist open debates regarding the evolution of learning analytics and its consequences on learning and on the educational system overall.

The ninth edition of the Learning Analytics Summer Institute Spain 2020 (LASI Spain 2020) (, organized by the Universidad de Valladolid and SNOLA (Spanish Network of Learning Analytics) (, is part of the global LASI network (, conceived as a platform to catalyze educators, technologists, researchers, enterprise and policymakers around shaping the next generation of learning infrastructures to truly serve the needs now facing the education sector.

The Call for Papers of LASI Spain 2020 invites researchers across the globe to submit original research and work in progress that further contributes to advances in the field.
