Oct 15- Learning Analytics: Promises & Limitations

Learning Analytics: Promises & Limitations, with Dr. Ryan Baker

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Livingston Student Center 202 ABC

11:30 - 1:30 pm (Please RSVP)

Join us for a talk by Ryan Baker, a truly innovative thinker in the field of analytics, data mining, and machine learning, followed by a discussion on the role of learning analytics at Rutgers University. Dr. Baker studies how students use and learn from educational games, intelligent tutors, and other kinds of educational software. Drawing on the fields of educational data mining, learning analytics, and human-computer interaction, he develops methods for mining the data that come out of the interactions between students and educational software. He then uses this information to improve our understanding of how students respond to educational software, and how these responses influence their learning.

We will also have a panel of Rutgers faculty to continue the discussion, including promises and limitations, after Dr. Baker concludes. Lunch will be served.
