ALASI Dates: 1st - 2nd November

We are thrilled to announce the forthcoming Australian Learning Analytics Summer Institute (ALASI), themed "Synergies in Education: Empowering Minds through Learning Analytics and AI". This immersive experience is designed to bring together educators, researchers, and practitioners for an engaging exploration of cutting-edge techniques and ideas at the intersection of education, analytics, and AI.

The landscape of education is undergoing a remarkable transformation. Theory-driven and data-informed insights and AI-enhanced tools are poised to revolutionise the way we understand, facilitate, and optimise the learning process. The intersection of Learning Analytics and AI offers an unprecedented opportunity to create dynamic, personalised learning experiences that cater to the unique needs of each learner.

At ALASI 2023, we seek to explore the multifaceted potential of these technologies and their impact on the educational ecosystem. We invite educators (Higher Education, Vocational education, K-12, etc.), researchers, and practitioners to contribute their expertise and insights to this transformative discourse.

We are pleased to announce that in addition to ALASI there will be a half day HDR only workshop which will include panel presentations and networking sessions. All HDRs are encouraged to attend this workshop.


ALASI 2023 will revolve around the follow key topics across higher education, vocational education and training, K-12, professional education and training, but not limited to:

  • Human-AI Partnership in Learning: Explores the intersection of human expertise and artificial intelligence in the learning process.
  • Intelligent Learning Systems: Unveiling the latest advancements in AI-driven learning platforms, adaptive assessment, and intelligent tutoring systems that can enhance learner engagement and achievement.
  • Learning Analytics and Data-Informed Instruction: Exploring methodologies and tools to gather, analyse, and interpret educational data, supporting evidence-based decision-making for educators and policymakers.
  • Personalisation and Individualised Learning: Investigating approaches to harness AI and Learning Analytics to tailor educational content, pace, and assessments to meet the unique strengths and challenges of each learner.
  • Ethical AI in Education: Examining the ethical considerations and implications of employing AI and Learning Analytics in educational settings, ensuring data privacy, fairness, and transparency.
  • Augmented Educators: Discussing how AI can complement and augment the role of educators, fostering a symbiotic relationship between human teachers and technological advancements.
  • Enhancing Education Access and Equity: Addressing how AI and Learning Analytics can bridge gaps in education, promoting inclusivity and accessibility across diverse learners and underserved communities.

Why Participate?

By participating at ALASI, you will have the chance to:

  • Engage in thought-provoking discussions and interactive workshops with experts at the forefront of learning analytics and AI in education.
  • Showcase your research, projects, and innovations to a diverse audience.
  • Forge collaborations and partnerships that can drive forward the evolution of education and technology in schools, tertiary educational institutions, and industry.
  • Gain valuable insights and takeaways to implement data-informed strategies and AI applications within your own educational contexts.

Interactive Sessions

Interactivity continues to be central to ALASI, so the focus will be on sessions that provide opportunities for discussion and collaboration. Proposals for an Interactive Session are invited for the following suggested types of session design:

  • Brainstorm challenges/World cafe
  • Panels or debates with a substantial amount of participant interactivity
  • Tutorials
  • Roundtables
  • Workshops
  • Hackathon
  • Other formats (as long as it’s interactive!)

The length of sessions can be either 45 mins or 90 mins. Proposals for mini-symposia consisting of a series of presentations are not encouraged. 

Poster and Demo Session

In this year's poster and demo Session, practitioners, researchers, and HDR students are invited to showcase their work in a lively, engaging format. This will take place in a dedicated space where presenters will each be able to discuss their work. This might be in the form of digital or paper posters, or live demonstrations. All poster and demo presenters will be asked to prepare one slide for a 30 second pitch on why people should come and see their poster.

HDR students are particularly encouraged to present work in progress. This is an excellent opportunity to gather feedback, broaden your network, and gain experience in communicating your research.
