3/4/2022Remembering Youre Just One in 11: An Introduction to Social Network Analysis
"I think that you might be so sure that you're one in a million, that sometimes you forget that out there you're just one in 11." Ted Lasso

So many aspects of the world around us are connected and interact with one another. Sometimes our attention focuses on a single person or a single element, but thinking about networks helps us take a step back and consider the larger systems. Social network analysis is a rigorous approach to describe and infer patterns in systems of interacting parts.

In this workshop, I will provide guidance for understanding and exploring networks. Abstract principles will be grounded by using R to analyze a dataset that is likely of interest to many AECT participants: tweets related to the AECT 2019 convention.

Specific learning objectives of this workshop include:

1. To define what a network is
2. To describe some of the basic characteristics of networks
3. To understand the range of approaches to analyzing networks, both descriptive and inferential
4. To reflect on larger, conceptual issues related to researching networks, such as research ethics and research paradigms
4. To help beginners get past the intimidation of programming in R
5. To demonstrate a workflow for collecting and processing Twitter data to analyze networks, all using the tidytags R package.
  Presenter(s): Bret Staudt Willet, Florida State University
Bio(s): Bret Staudt Willet, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Instructional Systems & Learning Technologies at Florida State University. His research investigates self-directed learning through social media. He has several ongoing projects related to this research area. First, he examines networked learning in online communities, such as those hosted by Twitter and Reddit. Second, he studies how new teachers expand their professional support systems during their induction transition. Third, he explores the connections between informal learning and invisible labor.
