Transcript

  • 1. Overview of Learning Analytics & Educational Data Mining Ryan Baker, IEDMS George Siemens, SoLAR
  • 2. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 3. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 4. -Build the field of Learning Analytics through cross-disciplinary interactions, identification of research and teaching needs, advancement of LA methods, and connecting isolated researchers and research communities. -Develop the skills and knowledge of doctoral students and academics, equipping them to engage actively in LA research and teaching. Why LASI?
  • 5. LASI Locals (consider running one next year) -Hong Kong, Denmark, South Africa, Latin America, France, Spain (Granada & Madrid), Scotland, Australia, Netherlands Thanks to Simon Buckingham Shum for organizing
  • 6. Thanks: Charles, Garron for hard work behind the scenes Dragan, Mykola, for an outstanding program Grace for admin/organization
  • 7. Thanks:
  • 8. Next year: MIT
  • 9. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 10. What is SoLAR? Scientific organization promoting high quality research in data and analytics generated through the learning process
  • 11. What does SoLAR do? LAK JLA LASI OLA LAMP
  • 12. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 13. What is the EDM Society? Supports collaboration and scientific research in mining big data from educational contexts
  • 14. What does IEDMS do? EDM conference JEDM EDM-ANNOUNCE/EDM-DISCUSS Supporting role in LASI, OLA, LAMP
  • 15. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 16. Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Prediction • Structure Discovery • Relationship mining • Distillation of data for human judgment • Discovery with models
  • 17. Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Prediction – Classification – Regression – Latent Knowledge Estimation
  • 18. Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Structure Discovery – Clustering – Factor Analysis – Domain Structure Discovery – Network Analysis
  • 19. Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Relationship mining – Association rule mining – Correlation mining – Sequential pattern mining – Causal data mining
  • 20. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 21. What is happening in LA? Dawson et al 2014
  • 22. Dawson et al 2014
  • 23. Trends Maturation of research Growing impact on practice Increased computer science representation
  • 24. What is happening in EDM? • A lot of classification and regression • Increased emphasis on latent knowledge estimation and knowledge structure discovery • Reduced emphasis on relationship mining Baker & Inventado, in press
  • 25. What is happening in EDM? • Broadening range of constructs studied – Meta-cognition – Affect – Engagement – Motivation – Long-Term Participation • Increased number of discovery with models analyses Baker & Inventado, in press
  • 26. What is happening in EDM? • Basic research • Automated intervention • And increasingly, we’re learning from LAK and getting into reporting
  • 27. What is happening in EDM? • Increased participation of industry; industry track • Workshops
  • 28. Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • 29. What do we need to be doing better?
  • 30. To advance as a field, LA researchers and practitioners need to address the following: (a) development of new tools, techniques, and people; (b) data: openness, ethics, and scope; (c) target of analytics activity; and (d) connections to related fields and practitioners.
  • 31. Challenges that we face Public pushback Broadening scope of data Creating strategic links to related academic/research communities
  • 32. EDM2015 • Madrid, Spain
  • 33. EDM2015 • Madrid, Spain
