The Rice/OpenStax Workshop on Personalized Learning will be held Wednesday, 1 April 2015 on the Rice University campus in Houston, Texas.
The previous two workshops in 2013 and 2014 have focused on Scaling Up Success in computer-based learning and Bridging the Laboratory-Classroom Divide in cognitive science and have featured Steve Ritter, David Kuntz, Mark McDaniel, Jeff Karpicke, Kurt Van Lehn, Michael Mozer, David Pritchard, Neil Heffernan, Zach Pardos, and Winslow Burleson.
This is the third incarnation of the workshop. We plan to focus on Modeling and Correcting Student Understanding through two related themes: (1) assessing what students know and forming an accurate picture of student understanding, and (2) determining the causes of student misunderstanding as well as methods for remediation. The workshop will be attended by leading experts in educational psychology, computer science, educational data mining, and cognitive science.
