The 2019 BayLAN conference, co-organized by GSE IT, brought together learning analytics researchers from industry and academia in the greater Bay Area to share the results of research, discuss ongoing work, and collaborate on new ideas.


The Bay Area Learning Analytics Network (BayLAN) is a researcher-led group focused on improving education through data-driven decisions and implementations. GSE IT partnered with BayLAN for the 2019 conference in order to more meaningfully connect cutting edge data scientists in and around Stanford Graduate School of Education.
