The goal of the workshop is to gather members of the three target stakeholder groups (teachers, researchers, developers), and use the OrLA framework to establish common ground among them, and to spark and sustain productive discussions about the needs and benefits of learning analytics interventions in authentic educational settings.
The workshop will feature hands-on collaborative activities, structured in three main phases:
Introduction to OrLA and example of its application to a real setting
Stakeholder needs: individual activities and breakout groups (per kind of stakeholder) about the major concerns and needs when facing a learning analytics intervention/innovation
Concrete intervention cases: breakout groups formed by different stakeholders, in which the benefits of concrete LA tools are matched against the constraints of the educational setting and the needs of the specific stakeholders in that setting
I'm a teacher
interested in applying learning analytics tools and methods in teaching practice (regardless of the level of ICT or specific learning analytics tool proficiency)
I'm a researcher
in the field of learning analytics, especially those that propose new methods and tools to be used in multiple authentic educational settings
I'm a technology developer
of learning analytics systems and tools, interested in meeting and understanding my potential end users
collaborative work in technology-enhanced classrooms. He has organized multiple collaborative workshops for professional development of teachers, as well as for scientists in the context of research projects.

About the workshop
Is this workshop for me?
A framework for researchers, teachers and developers
... that are considering the proposal/adoption of a novel learning analytics intervention.
Stemming from previous orchestration and learning analytics research, and the organizers' prior experience in applying such research to real classrooms, the framework identifies crucial aspects for the mutual understanding of those educational stakeholders, and it
The workshop will accept (in fact, it requires!) participants from the different educational stakeholders often involved in learning analytics interventions:
