Workshop at Learning Lab on Campus Essen | 19th November 2015 | 10 am to 4 pm: 

Social Network Analysis in Educational Research: Introduction  to Methodology and Current Research Trends

Social networks analysis (SNA) allows to capture social interactions and relationships within a wide-range of online platforms (e.g. Learning Management Systems, Internet fora, Social Media), and settings (e.g. Teacher education, informal learning, and workbased learning). Among others, this type of analysis has provided valuable insights into (in)formal learning processes. The workshop will introduce the underlying (relatively complex) methodology of SNA and provide hands-on experience with widely used software applications to conduct the applicable analysis. Moreover, participants are highly encouraged to present their own research ideas and results. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact the organizing team.
