The Learning Analytics Summer Institute at Stanford (LASI-Stanford) is a strategic five-day event, July 1-5, 2013, co-organized by SoLAR and Stanford University. The International Educational Data Mining Society is also assisting with event organization. In parallel, a global network of LASI-Locals will run their own institutes.

The objective is that participants will leave better equipped to actively engage in advancing the LA field through their teaching and research activities. Specifically, LASI has two goals:
- Build the field of Learning Analytics through cross disciplinary interactions, identification of research and teaching needs, advancement of LA methods, and connecting isolated researchers.
- Develop the skills and knowledge of doctoral students and academics, equipping them to engage actively in LA research and teaching.
LASI-Stanford was massively over-subscribed and applications are now closed. This is testament to the timeliness of the field and the LASI concept, and we are sorry we had to turn away so many high calibre people.
However, you are encouraged to participate by tuning in online to the live-streamed morning sessions from Stanford, or organising or attending a LASI-Local, each of which is being designed to meet national/regional agendas.
