Presentation: Data Science Symposium

As a part of NC State's efforts to create a nationally recognized hub of excellence in data science and analytics, the Data Science Initiative sponsored a Winter Symposium. The goals of this event were twofold: In addition to introducing the Initiative and hosting plenary talks on external partnerships and existing resources within the university, we hope to foster internal collaboration by using the afternoon to highlight existing research efforts across the university. This consisted of very short presentations by faculty members on individual research topics in a speed dating format, organized by college. As part of these faculty presentations, Dr. Shaun Kellogg discussed the integration of Learning Analytics techniques, including Data Dashboards and Social Network Analysis, to support more traditional evaluation approaches to online learning.
