CIDER

A reminder of this event…

Dear CIDER Member,

We invite you to the April CIDER session at the Canadian Initiative for Distance Education Research. This free, online session will feature Dr. Alyssa Wise of Simon Fraser University discussing learning analytics and the E-Listening research project.

Title: From Data Science to Learning Analytics: The Evolution of the E-Listening Research Project

The E-Listening Project began as an effort to use data traces of student activity in online discussions to better understand their learning behaviors and interactions, including a reconceptualization of listening for online spaces, a taxonomy for considering different kinds of listening in online discussion, and documentation of empirical findings about both the specific patterns of listening in which students engage and their perceptions of these activities. Recent project efforts have resulted in tools directly designed for student use, both embedded learning analytics in the form of a novel graphical discussion interface and extracted learning analytics provided periodically as part of a reflective cycle.

This presentation will overview the early findings from the project, the challenges faced in moving from a basic research to a learning intervention mode, and the E-Listening Analytics that were eventually developed.

When: Wednesday, April 13, 201611am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)

[CNIE-L] Journal of Professional, Continuing, And Online Education (JPCOE) Is Accepting Submissions For Its First Issue

From Monday’s inbox – not quite related to K-12 online learning, but may be of interest…

The Journal of Professional, Continuing, and Online Education (JPCOE) is accepting submissions for its first issue. JPCOE will offer rolling publication of research articles, reports of practice, and reviews. Papers from writers outside of Canada may be submitted. As the title of the new journal suggests, papers with an online focus as online approaches continue to growth within continuing  and professional education are also welcome in addition to other papers involving professional and continuing education.

We strongly encourage you to consider making a submission to JPCOE.  Work is still happening to prepare the site for the official launch this spring.

We are accepting submissions for research articles, forum pieces, and reports of practice.

If you would like your work to be considered for publication in the inaugural issue (Volume 1, No 1), please submit your full paper as soon as possible. Submissions will be reviewed as received, and we will endeavour to have achieve a four week response and publication processing time.

We look forward to enjoying your support in the launch of JPCOE and anticipate receiving your papers.
