Workshop Description

With the surge of multimodal data analytics, automated analysis of interaction data has also advanced greatly. Yet, analysis of collaboration through tracing work with digital objects, , e.g., collaborative essays, research reports, prototypes, digital tools, often used or developed together by learners, is not common. This workshop aims to create opportunities for researchers, designers and practitioners to share their research questions and challenges, and discuss theoretical and methodological approaches to examining collaborative learning with digital objects. In the workshop, we will: 

  • Explore conceptualizations, methods and research on collaboration with digital objects,
  • Articulate common themes and issues relevant for research and methodological work, 
  • Outline an integrative agenda and network for future collaboration.

Participants will be part of various forms of activity: sharing ow work & interests (Pecha Kucha presentations), progressive brainstorming, documented group work and plenary discussions, as well as joint framing plans for future collaboration.

Expected Audience

We invite participation and contributions from participants interested in: 

  1. expanding their understanding of collaborative learning, and  
  2. methodological challenges and possible solutions for capturing and analyzing digital traces of collaboration with digital objects.  

Contributions could range from promising ideas or approaches to empirical studies or tested methods for collecting and analyzing work with digital objects. Researchers, students and practitioners are invited to join this workshop and contribute.
