Podcast & Webinars

The Society for Learning Analytics Research is proud to present a new series of Podcasts & Webinars for our growing community!

The new series is meant to create more spaces for our community to collaborate and share the work that is being done around the world and where we discuss some big ideas and trends in research and practice of learning analytics. Our podcasts and webinars will each be offered on a bi-monthly basis, so one month we’ll release our new podcast episode and then the next month will be a new webinar. We hope you’ll follow along and share your ideas and feedback with us!
