Partnerships for Cocreating Educational Content

March 13, 2023 - 13:30 - 17:00 CST - Arlington, TX, USA

Workshop as part of the Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference March 13-17, 2023

The first annual workshop on Partnerships for Cocreating Educational Content is taking place at Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference in 2023. This in-person workshop will expose attendees to the ample opportunities in leveraging humans, AI, and learning analytics to generate content, particularly appealing to instructors, researchers, learning engineers, and many other roles. The process of humans and AI cocreating educational content involves many stakeholders (students, instructors, researchers, instructional designers, etc.), thus multiple viewpoints can help to inform what future generated content might be useful, new and better ways to assess the quality of such content and to spark potential collaborative efforts between attendees. We ultimately want to show how everyone can leverage recent advancements in learnersourcing, AI, and learning analytics, and engage all participants in shaping the landscape of challenges and opportunities in this space. Our hope is to attract attendees interested in scaling the generation of instructional and assessment content and those interested in the use of online learning platforms.

Accepted Papers

While we encouraged participant submissions for this workshop, we will have plenty of activities and other ways to contribute during the workshop itself. Presentation of the submissions will only be a portion of the workshop, as we plan to keep participants engaged and contributing through other ways during the workshop.
