UD’s School of Education hosts University of Pennsylvania Professor Ryan S. Baker

Join University of Delaware’s College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) for a colloquium with Ryan S. Baker, professor in the learning, teaching and literacies division in the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, on May 8, 2024 from 1:50 to 2:50 p.m. in room 205 of Willard Hall Education Building.

Baker studies how data can better be used to study and improve online learning. Using data from educational software, he examines how students respond to computer lessons, focusing on engagement and disengagement, and how these responses impact learning. Baker has also researched student success in massive open online courses. He is working to develop the next generation of these courses, which will incorporate features from intelligent tutoring systems. His colloquium is titled “Using Large Language Models to Code Qualitative Data and Act as a Teaching Assistant.”

Baker’s colloquium is part of a year-long series hosted by CEHD’s School of Education. Speakers both internal and external to UD share their research and engage with faculty and students.

The colloquium is free and open to the public. Audience members are also welcome to participate in a discussion with the speaker following the colloquium.
