Event description

Description

Learning in the 21st century means thinking in complex and collaborative ways that are situated in a real world context. This workshop will introduce participants to Quantitative Ethnography, a set of tools for modelling complex thinking. A central premise of Quantitative Ethnography is that learning is a process of enculturation in which students learn to make relevant connections between skills, concepts, and practices in a domain. Quantitative Ethnography models the structure of these connections in large- and small-scale datasets, and log files of many kinds, including games and simulations, chat, email, and social media. By modelling patterns of connections in discourse, Quantitative Ethnography can help researchers quantify and visualise the development of complex thinking.

This interactive workshop will provide an overview of Quantitative Ethnography, outlining some of the ways it has been used to analyse learning, with an emphasis on the conceptual and practical issues of data management, coding, and modelling. Participants are invited to share their projects and data to explore how Quantitative Ethnography would apply to their work.
