BayLAN cares deeply about our community's health and safety. Thus, due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the organizing committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year's in-person meeting, originally planned for May, 2, at UC Berkeley.

The Bay Area Learning Analytics Network (BayLAN) is a local network of researchers and professionals in the field of learning analytics.  Our purpose is to exchange and validate innovative ideas and to provide local access to research and expertise.  BayLAN was started by Britte Haugan Cheng and Josine Verhagen as a spin-off of the Society of Learning Analytics and Research network, which was part of the Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference in Edinburgh in 2015. The BayLAN conference will be a regional event to facilitate the exchange of information, case studies, ideas, and early stage research in the field of learning analytics.
