Took me a while to wrap my thoughts about JTELSS19 what I believe was the best summer school I ever been so far - the 15th EATEL Summer School (jTELSS19) https://ea-tel.eu/jtelss/jtelss2019/
The summer school is the European event for junior researchers in the field of educational technologies, and it gathered 87 PhD students and senior researchers from 23 countries.
The event took place in the first week of June 1 - 8th June in Giovinazzo, Bari, Italy and this time, I had the pleasure of being the local chair organising the logistics and organisational aspects of the summer school.
24-25th May I travelled to Beijing in China to present at the conference AI and Adaptive Education 2019 (AIAED 2019). I was invited by some Chinese-American researchers whom I met at the LAK'19 conference in Arizona.
AIAED (not to be confused with AIED) conference was organised for the third year in a row by the company Squirrel AI. It gathered 3000 attendees in the impressive location of the Beijing World Trade centre.
Last week I agreed to take part in this new project created by two students of the Department of Data Science at Maastricht University called Hackademia podcast. Their idea is to make podcasts about interesting research projects and explain them for the general public, so to make complex ideas simple.
March is the month of the Learning Analytics & Knowledge conference, in 2019 has taken place in Tempe, Phoenix, Arizona. Coming back from a very long journey (extended by some days off) in the United States, I decided to wrap up all my conference highlights in a blog post.
