LL&C Colloquium Series -- Study of Small Group Decision-Making in CSCL Environments

Sage 4101

LL&C Colloquium Series presents a talk by Binod Sundararajan, Ph.D. candidate.

"Study of Small Group Decision-Making in CSCL Environments using Social Network Analysis"

Sundararajan notes, "This talk is a prospective look at my dissertation research, including hypotheses, models, data collection and analysis procedures. The study will involve the investigation of small group decision-making processes in computer-supported collaborative learning environments, based on communication artifacts, quality and quantity of student participation and their social presence in class groups. Several methodologies will be integrated, including social network analysis tools to analyze relational data and the social dynamic factors prevalent in group interactions and map emergent student group communication patterns in these environments; content analysis of transcripts of the communication logs; and statistical procedures to analyze attribute data. I will also consider future directions in CSCL and Instructional System design."

Reception, with hot refreshments, immediately follows.
