Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

SoLAR supports a range of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to provide opportunities for active collaboration and professional learning among people who group around a common interest topic in learning analytics.

Are you interested in starting a Special Interest Group? If so, please review the SoLAR SIG guidelines. Once you have reviewed the guidelines and would like to proceed to submit a proposal to the SIG working group, please complete the Google Form to submit your proposal for review. All SIG proposals are reviewed by the SIG working group and then require approval by the SoLAR Executive Committee. Notifications of SoLAR decision will be made no later than 8 weeks after submission.

SoLAR SIG Working Group members: Shibani Antonette, University of Technology Sydney, Australia; Charles Lang, Columbia University, USA & Kirsty Kitto, Connected intelligence Centre, University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Please email antonette.shibani@uts.edu.au if you'd like to join this working group.

Current SoLAR SIGs

  • Graduate Student SIG

    Unifying graduate students working in learning analytics to facilitate training and collaboration opportunities within the SoLAR community.

  • Multimodal Learning Analytics Across Spaces (CrossMMLA) SIG

    The Cross-MMLA SIG aims to promote further research that considers the challenges of making sense of complex educational data that involve multiple interaction modalities, people and learning spaces. To understand and optimize learning traces from the real world requires new degrees of sophistication across technology, learning, and design; and to build upon the ongoing and previous work from the Learning Analytics and related communities.

  • Learning Analytics Community Europe (LACE) SIG

    The overall objective of the SIG LACE is the continuation of the work done by the European project LACE (Learning Analytics Community Exchange) that resulted in a tangible and mature European community for learning analytics research.

  • Learning Analytics - Asia (LA-Asia) SIG

    While the SOLAR community continues to grow globally, SIG LA-Asia shall concentrate on the technology-enhanced teaching and learning initiatives in Asia which involves learning analytics research and practice. It shall provide a platform to different stakeholders in an Asian educational setting to engage, ideate and act locally to create global solutions.

  • Special Interest Group on Writing Analytics (SIGWA)

    The Special Interest Group on Writing Analytics (SIGWA) will facilitate discussion on writing analytics research by researchers, writing tool developers, theorists and practitioners to foster a research and practice community in writing analytics.

  • Learning Analytics for Latin America (LALA) SIG

    The main goal of this SIG is to promote good research and practice of LA in Latin America. Specifically, we aim to: 1) facilitate knowledge exchange among Latin American and international communities related to learning analytics (maintain the LALA community), 2) support local initiatives of learning analytics, 3) enable the exchange of best practices and guidelines for learning analytics research, 4) advance learning analytics research and practice.

  • Methodology in Learning Analytics (MLA) SIG

    The goals of Methodology in Learning Analytics SIG are to i) build an active community within SoLAR focused on supporting and enhancing methodological practice in learning analytics, and ii) to develop a repository of resources that provide compact, substantive guidance on methodological issues.
