The International Online Seminar on Computational Educational Sciences
In April 2020, the Centre launched an International Online Seminar on Computational Educational Sciences. The seminar is aimed at building the research community and thinking together on challenging problems at the intersection of education, quantitative research, and computational science.
Speakers of the seminar are researchers and experts in psychometrics, machine learning, and educational sciences from universities around the world. They present their latest studies and developments at the seminar.
Participants of the seminar have the opportunity to ask questions to an expert in a specific field, consider current problems of the education area, discuss future research/projects and opportunities for cooperation.
The working language of the seminar is English. The participation format is online.
At the first seminar that took place On April 9, 2020, Carlos Felipe Rodríguez Hernandes (University of Leuven, Belgium) gave a presentation "An artificial neural network analysis of academic performance in higher education". The video of the seminar can be found here.
The second workshop was held on June 25, 2020, and Guillermo Santamaria-Bonfil (National Council for Science and Technology, Mexico) presented the article "Learning analytics for student modeling in virtual reality training systems". The video of the seminar can be found here.
The workshop was presented by Dr. Maria Janelli (American Museum of Natural History, City University of New York, the USA). She presented the article "Effects of pre-tests and feedback on performance outcomes and persistence in Massive Open Online Courses". The video of the seminar can be found here.
The workshop was presented by Dr. Ji-Eun Lee (Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the USA). She presented the article ”The effects of instructors’ use of online discussions strategies on student participation and performance in university online introductory mathematics courses”. The video of the seminar can be found here.
