Researchers and students in the distributed research lab will achieve three outcomes:
1. Develop research in, and the application of, social media/networks, analytics, and data mining in education 2. Explore future learning models and learning institutions 3. Assist participants in developing a dual-profile: as a traditional researcher and as a public scholar
"This research team will not replace the student’s research advisors and the review panel at their institution. The lab will pursue a specific research agenda in analytics and digital networks and their impact on education. Learners that feel their doctoral research aligns with the research being proposed as part of the lab will receive feedback and a forum to debate and develop their ideas. Through peer and expert feedback, participants will refine their research and methodology. ... Regular research meetings will be held synchronously for peer and faculty feedback. An annual week-long (in-person) doctoral research seminar will be held in order for students to spend more time exploring their research and learning about new analytics techniques and tools."
"At the conclusion of the three years, students, as a result of their work with this lab, will have served as lead author on three articles in peer-reviewed journals (open preferred) and served as co-author on three additional articles in peer-reviewed journals (open preferred). Students will have developed both formal publishing profile along with ongoing engagement as a public scholar through blogs and social media. If you are interested in joining the distributed research project as a doctoral student, please contact George Siemens or Simon Buckingham Shum."
