LAK19 Connectivism Workshop

Given the rapid changes confronting society, important questions remain regarding how theory influence the work of researchers. Within learning and knowledge building literature, cognitivism and constructivism have remained the primary theories. Connectivism learning theory has more recently been posited and has been heavily cited over the past 15 years. Unfortunately, it has not been explored empirically.

To start tackling those and other challenges, related to defining Connectivism as a learning theory, we are organizing a full day workshop at the Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK19) conference. Our goal is to operationalize a research agenda, utilizing learning analytics methods and techniques. Hope you will join us to explore together the core assertions of Connectivism with the goal of fostering a research community.
