About the Strategic Planning Process:
Every two years, SoLAR Executive members come together to review the state of the field, speak to past and present stakeholders and institutional members to collect information on the problems SoLAR and the learning analytics community face. From this information, the SoLAR Executive create 3-4 main goals along with actions and measurements. Each year at the annual general meeting, SoLAR reports their activities based on the strategic plan.
