Bilingual Text-mining for Personalized Learning Reflection
Prof. Siu-Cheung Kong, Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology, The Education University of Hong Kong

The EdUHK team shares the pedagogical experience of using bilingual text-mining in course delivery for an efficient and evident tracking of students’ conceptual change in course learning. The bilingual text-mining system incorporates a bilingual taxonomy of domain-specific keywords for an automatic identification and counting of matching keywords in student-generated text on the learning management system Moodle. Each student can access the hierarchical visualization for an interactive comparison of his/her own usage of matching keywords with the whole-class usage. This data-oriented initiative is potential to support students to make concrete reflection on their personalized progress in learning course concepts.


The arrangement of the seminar is as follows:

Date: 5 Dec 2018 (Wed)

Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm

Venue: E-P-13 (Mobile Computing Laboratory), The Education University of Hong Kong
