LABBEC 2019 workshop at EDM2019, Montreal

Learning Analytics: Building bridges between the Education and the Computing communities

http://griemetic.ca/fr/evenements/educational-data-mining-2019/



The Educational Data Mining (EDM) and Learning Analytics (LA) fields have generated a wealth of research over the last decade, including two yearly conferences and two scientific journals. This workshop aims to foster the dissemination of this research to the education community.  It will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their perspective on how this research has impacted the education field, and assess what lays ahead. Among the questions we wish to address is whether the two communities have a common perspective of the LA and EDM fields, and whether their expectations converge toward a common set of requirements.  We also would like to address the perceived contributions of LA/EDM to the Educational community and to the Technology Enhanced Learning field, including MOOCs and the range of applications that foster means of self-driven learning.


Topics of interest, while not limited to, are:

 *

   Expectations of the educational community towards EDM

 *

   Role of psychometrics in EDM and vice-versa

 *

   EDM tools and methods in education

 *

   Statistical learning methods in psychometrics

 *

   Research divide between EDM and education and psychometrics

 *

   Obstacles to dissemination between communities

 *

   EDM in the education curriculum


This half-day workshop is the second edition of LABBEC, the first one being held at ITS2018.  It will be part of the EDM2019 conference in Montreal on July 2.
