I’ve just returned from the US where for the last 10 days I’ve been attending the 5th Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK) conference, followed by a short trip to visit colleagues at Rutgers University School of Communications and Information.

Then later in the week I presented a paper on the conceptual grounding for my empirical work in a session on ‘Text and Discourse Analytics’ – a really strong theme throughout this year’s LAK. I got to give a longer reprisal of that paper at Rutgers the following week, to a small informal group from the School of Communications and Information.

There I also spent some time talking to the infoseeking group about our collaborative work together, and particularly some ideas around analysis of etherpad-collaboration and sequence analysis. I also got to catch up with Randi Zimmerman (see e.g. this presentation) from the Graduate School of Education, who has very similar research interests to me and it’s always a pleasure to exchange (and build!) ideas with.
The talk there can be viewed:
