About Us

The educational technology collective is a group of students, staff, and faculty who explore the intersections of technology with teaching, learning, and education, with a particular focus on learning analytics, educational data mining, and collaborative engagement. We’re interdisciplinary, and include researchers with backgrounds in computer science, information, psychology, statistics, and more.
