Chair: Sandra Kučina Softić
In this session our distinguished researchers will highlight some of the emerging research methods and approaches they use in their research practice. Participants will be split into groups to collaboratively work and showcase some of the topics related to their own interests such as working with large datasets, matching methods to research questions, validation of surveys, the role of case studies, etc. In the end participants will be able to ask questions and engage in discussion with panellists. This cutting-edge section is intended for PhD students as well as other researchers who would like to further explore their research methods and share their knowledge with others.

DAY 2: Tuesday, September 20th
HYBRID / ROOM DUBROVNIK 9:15 – 10:15 Keynote: How can you use learning analytics in your own research and practice: an introductory perspective, Prof. Bart Rienties
Chair: Wim Van Petegem
Join this keynote and meet the 4th most cited author and contributor in Learning Analytics in the period 2011-2018, and one of the most published authors on educational technology in the same period who will explore how you as researcher, practitioner, and/or policy maker could start to use learning analytics to better understand your educational practice. Using examples from small-scale experiments and large-scale adoptions of predictive learning analytics I will explore together with EDEN RW participants which approaches and methods in learning analytics might be useful to consider. No prior knowledge or experience of learning analytics is expected, and join me on a journey of how you could potentially use data from your learners and teachers to further improve and finetune your blended and online provision
