This week I attended the 2nd Learning and Student Analytics Conference http://lsac2018.org taking place at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. The conference started to group the researchers and practitioners in Learning Analytics in The Netherlands. In practice this year it turned out attracting people from all over Europe. For this reason, in 2019 LSAC becomes a European Learning Analytics conference, which will be hosted in Nancy, France at the Loria lab.
On Thursday 6th September 2018, at the EC-TEL 2018 conference happening in Leeds, the U.K. I was awarded the EATEL doctoral academy "Martin Wolpers" award 2018.
The Martin Wolpers student award grants EUR 700 to the research project of the most promising young researcher to either present his/her work at an international conference or to participate in a relevant educational activity to further support the awardee’s to progress in her/his professional career.
