Dagstuhl Search as Learning: seminar introduction

  1. 1. Search as Learning 17092 Preben Hansen Claudia Hauff Claus-Peter Klas Kevyn Collins-Thompson
  2. 2. “ this is a new research agenda … it focuses on the impact, influence, and consequences of using search systems as learning technologies rather than information retrieval tools and techniques
  3. 3. Interdisciplinary Psychology Information Retrieval Education
  4. 4. 3 Critical bottlenecks (our view) 1. Novel algorithms & interfaces are tested in small-scale, short-term laboratory studies with simulated tasks. 2. Lack of awareness among researchers in different disciplines. 3. A shared research infrastructure is missing.
  5. 5. 6 Research themes (based on key challenges) RT1 *** Understanding search as a human learning process: when and how does learning occur in the search process? RT2 ********* How can learning performance and learning outcomes be measured during search? What search process features can act as indicators of learning? RT3 ***** What is the relationship between the learning process and the context (educational, work-related, etc.) the learning & searches occur in? RT4 ** How do collaborations in the search process influence learning outcomes? RT5 ********* What type of functionalities and interventions on the search system interface level and the search algorithm level foster learning? RT6 *** How does learning whilst searching manifest itself for different populations such as children and non-experts? Not set in stone, just a starting point!
  6. 6. Goals1. To foster cross-discipline ‘search as learning’ collaborations. 2. To combine & analyze theoretical and empirical contributions in different fields to determine gaps, shared issues, and novel research questions. 3. To create a shared benchmark dedicated towards the ‘search as learning’ topic, enabling the wider research community to directly benefit from our progress.
  7. 7. Today We go with the flow!
