  • Community – shared activity towards shared goals
    Going to mostly talk about the activity in this project
    Shared goals – improving learning, based on data
  • It’s learning analytics if you care about closing that loop.s
    Educational researchers don’t care about getting back to learners.
    Educational interventions don’t care about data from the learners
  • Schools, workplace, HE – and cross-domain. Interoperability.
    Framework of quality indicators.
  • How do you build a community?
    Write lots of words. We’re academics so that’s how we do anything.
  • Community is about people.
    We might like to think we are creatures of pure thought, but we are also social primates.
  • Helping towards sense-making
    Building on Simon BS’s work on evidence hubs, and OER Research Hub.
  • Also, help more people know what we know,
    And develop what we know about who knows who
    Is that right? How should we do that? In general as a community, and directly as LACE?
