EdLab Seminar: Interactive Workshop on Quantitative Ethnographyː Open Source Tools for Analyzing Large Sets of Discourse Data
Learning in the 21st century means thinking in complex and collaborative ways that are situated in a real world context. This workshop will introduce participants to Quantitative Ethnography, a set of tools for modeling complex thinking. A central premise of Quantitative Ethnography is learning is a process of enculturation in which students learn to make relevant connections between skills, concepts, and practices in a domain. Quantitative Ethnography models the structure of these connections in large- and small-scale datasets, and logfiles of many kinds, including games and simulations, chat, email, and social media. By modeling patterns of connections in discourse, Quantitative Ethnography can help researchers quantify and visualize the development of complex thinking. This interactive workshop will provide an overview of Quantitative Ethnography, outlining some of the ways it has been used to analyze learning, with an emphasis on the conceptual and practical issues of data management, coding, and modeling. Participants are invited to share their projects and data to explore how Quantitative Ethnography would apply to their work.
