Visible to the public 

The NSF Workshop on Convergence Research about Multimodal Human Learning Data during Human Machine Interactions (HDR) will be held at Vanderbilt University Institute for Software Integrated Systems located at 1025 16th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37212, on May 17-18, 2018. A workshop dinner will be held on May 17, 2018 (location TBD). 

Intelligent, interactive, and highly networked machines -- with which people increasingly share their autonomy and agency -- are a growing part of the landscape, particularly in regard to work. As automation today moves from the factory floor to knowledge and service occupations, insight and action are needed to reap the benefits in increased productivity and increased job opportunities, and to mitigate social costs. Such innovations also have significant implications and potential value for lifelong learning, skills assessments, and job training/retraining in an environment in which workforce demands are changing rapidly.

The specific focus of this workshop is to advance fundamental understanding of how to collect and analyze multimodal, multichannel sensor on human affect, motivation, metacognition, and cognition during learning and problem solving, and effectively integrate this data into actionable educational interventions in advanced learning technology environments (e.g., intelligent tutoring systems). The impacts of this research extend to a diverse range of learning environments, and job training and retraining opportunities.
