Discourse-Centric Learning Analytics

Workshop photo taken by gr0uch0On 8 April I co-chaired the 1st International Workshop on Discourse-centric Learning Analytics, which took in place with the third Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference (LAK13) in Leuven, Belgium.

The workshop began with a keynote by David Williamson Shaffer on ‘How Research into Epistemics Might Inform DCLA’.

This was followed by six papers – one of which I had co-authored.

  • Analysis of Discourse and the Importance of Time (Gregory Dyke, Elijah Mayfield, Iris Howley, David Adamson, Carolyn P. Rosé)
  • Leveraging CSCL Research Analyzing Online Discussion to Inform DCLA (Alyssa Friend Wise)
  • Discourse, Computation and Context – Sociocultural DCLA Revisited (Simon Knight and Karen Littleton)
  • XIP Dashboard: Visual Analytics from Automated Rhetorical Parsing of Scientific Metadiscourse (Duygu Simsek, Simon Buckingham Shum, Ágnes Sándor, Anna De Liddo, Rebecca Ferguson)
  • Virtual Communities of Practice in Academia: An Automated Discourse Analysis (Nicolae Nistor, Beate Baltes, George Smeaton, Mihai Dascalu, Dan Mihaila, & Stefan Trausan-Matu)
  • OpenEssayist: Extractive Summarisation & Formative Assessment of Free-Text Essays (Nicolas Van Labeke, Denise Whitelock, Debora Field, Stephen Pulman, John Richardson)

The workshop concluded with a discussion session.

The event was liveblogged by Doug Clow.
