The question posed by the 2014 LAK Data Challenge is “What do analytics on learning analytics tell us?” The authors looked to take a two-pronged approach to this challenge. First, the authors wanted to use advanced analytical techniques on the corpus to make the “eat your own dog food” point. Since many of the EDM/LAK submissions explain advanced(More)
The 2<sup>nd</sup> LAK Failathon will build on the successful event in 2016 and extend the workshop beyond discussing individual experiences of failure to exploring how the field can improve, particularly regarding the creation and use of evidence. Failure in research is an increasingly hot topic, with high-profile crises of confidence in the published(More)
This poster will be a chance for a wider LAK audience to engage with the 2<sup>nd</sup> LAK Failathon workshop. Both of these will build on the successful Failathon event in 2016 and extend beyond discussing individual experiences of failure to exploring how the field can improve, particularly regarding the creation and use of evidence.
