Information Seeking in the Spirit of Learning: a Dataset for Conversational Curiosity [article]

Pedro Rodriguez, Paul Crook, Seungwhan Moon, Zhiguang Wang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Open-ended human learning and information-seeking are increasingly mediated by digital assistants. However, such systems often ignore the user's pre-existing knowledge.  ...  Assuming a correlation between engagement and user responses such as "liking" messages or asking followup questions, we design a Wizard-of-Oz dialog task that tests the hypothesis that engagement increases  ...  Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed here are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the view of the sponsor.  ...

cMOOCs and Global Learning: An Authentic Alternative

Carol Yeager, Betty Hurley-Dasgupta, Catherine A. Bliss
2013 Online Learning  
In this paper, we will focus on a type of MOOC called a cMOOC, because it is based on the theory of connectivism and fits the definition of an Open Educational Resource (OER) identified for this special  ...  We begin with a definition of the cMOOC and a discussion of the connectivism on which it is based.  ...  These synchronous events can then spark new uses for these environments, in the spirit of the connectivist model.  ...

Dialogic Feed-Forward in Assessment: Pivotal to Learning but not Unproblematic

Jennifer Hill, Harry West
2022 Teaching & Learning Inquiry: The ISSOTL Journal  
Our findings evidence the transformative power of assessment dialogue on student learning for a range of achievers.  ...  A key debate in higher education is how assessment and feedback can be constructed to maximize opportunities for meaningful student learning.  ...  However, in the spirit of case studies, we are not presenting the experiences of our four students as proof of any research hypotheses, but rather to learn in-depth about their lived experiences (Eysenck  ...

Powerful learning at SEA

Gordon Rowland, Allison L. Kitchen-Meyer
2018 FORMakademisk  
The Sea Education Association (SEA) has an international reputation for creating powerful learning experiences in semester-long programs that involve conducting scientific research while sailing tall ships  ...  Relationships among these themes point toward complexity, design, and systemic design and suggest seeds of a theory of powerful learning systems.  ...  I portrayed this as mere curiosity so as to not reveal the focus of my study, which I referred to as experiential learning.  ...

Data

Eric Hoenes del Pinal
2022 Fieldwork in Religion  
This article argues for the necessity of critically assessing how data is produced and suggests that data emerges when the researcher learns how to view their experiences and observations in new ways.  ...  Ethnographic research involves coming to know a society's culture and religion in several different ways both quantitative and qualitative.  ...  In short, I had to figure out how to interpret the corpus of videos as a dataset that would hold up to the kind of analyses I wanted to do.  ...

Agent-based dynamic support for learning from collaborative brainstorming in scientific inquiry

Hao-Chuan Wang, Carolyn P. Rosé, Chun-Yen Chang
2011 International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning  
This paper seeks to contribute new insight to the process of learning during idea generation (i.e., brainstorming) by proposing and evaluating two alternative operationalizations for learning, which we  ...  Our finding is that while brainstorming in pairs leads to short-term process losses in terms of idea-generation productivity, with a corresponding reduction in connection-based learning, it produces a  ...  In this case, the ideal support for group brainstorming would seek to enrich the social interaction between students rather than seeking to circumvent the process losses per se.  ...
