This webinar sketches a fusion of learning science with learning analytics using a model of self-regulated learning (SRL) as glue. Seven challenging questions are explored: (1) What are learning analytics and what they are for? (2) Why is traditional experimental research inadequate to guide SRL? (3) What key facets are needed to model SRL? (4) What are ambient trace data and how can trace data reflect SRL? (5) What methods for analyzing trace data set a stage for learning analytics about SRL? (6) What does a learning ecology look like in which learning and learning science thrive in symbiosis? (7) What are some targets needing attention in future research?
