The LASI Doctoral Consortium is a half-day event that will bring together Ph.D. candidates working on topics related to learning analytics with experts in the area that will act as mentors to provide feedback. The participants in the DC will have the opportunity to present, discuss and receive feedback about their research, both through the review process and during the celebration of the DC at LASI Spain 2021. They will be also invited to contribute to the discussion that will take place during the event.
To apply to the Doctoral Consortium, student applicants should submit the following documents as one single PDF file to the Easy Chair system: a paper (6 pages maximum) following the workshop proceedings format with the following content:
Submissions will be reviewed after acceptance by at least two senior researchers and by one of the other accepted doctoral candidates. Additionally, one discussant will be appointed to discuss the paper in situ, during the celebration of the DC in June, 2021.
Accepted candidates should prepare a 15-20 minute presentation, including an introductory pitch about themselves and their Ph.D. project and its main issues during the small group sessions. A subset of the accepted submissions to the Doctoral Consortium will be invited to publish their paper in the CEUR workshop proceedings of LASI Spain 2021.
The Doctoral Consortium will take place during LASI Spain 2021. The format will interleave research presentations and small-group discussion, so students have opportunities for in-depth conversation about their work.
