  Title:  11-Wa - Learning Analytics: Data wrangling and Visualization
 FULL - NA Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:00 AM - 3:50 PM Tuesday, Oct. 22   Room: D
Description:  The purpose of this workshop is to provide attendees with a walkthrough of data wrangling using R and data visualization using R and Tableau for learning analytics purposes. After the workshop, attendees will walk away with basic skills of data wrangling and visualization with R and Tableau. Scalfolding techniques will be employed to make sure that learners are comfortable to apply the skills introduced during the workshop to handle a real and complicated dataset.

  Title:  11-Wd - Mixed Methods Research Techniques: A Step by Step Approach for Instructional Design Researchers
 FULL - NA Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:00 AM - 10:50 AM Tuesday, Oct. 22   Room: G
Description:  Identifying yourself as a quantitative or a qualitative researcher may limit your ability to explore a broader range of research questions. Where qualitative researchers report on how and why of the research questions, the quantitative researchers inform about how many, who, where, and when. Either can give only a part of the complete picture. Then, why not consider using a mixed method research design? Learn how to decide if mixed methods approach is the correct paradigm to apply, develop mixed methods research questions, explore the role of sampling, compare and contrast the mixed methods approach with quantitative and qualitative research approach.

  Title:  11-We - Learning from Failure: Growing Roses of Success
Fee: $15.00   Time: 8:00 AM - 10:50 AM Tuesday, Oct. 22   Room: CR-1
Description:  Failure can inhibit or enhance learning, making it a critical factor to consider when designing and implementing instruction. Rather than being a shadow to avoid, failure should be embraced and celebrated. This three-hour workshop will explore how failure can be leveraged to inspire learning and learners through the use of LEGO robotics in engaging and challenging mathematical explorations. A lack of programming experience is welcome, will be supported, and will enhance the conversation.

  Title:  14-Wb - Leveraging Artificial Intelligence to Enhance Game-based Learning
 FULL - NA Fee: $15.00   Time: 1:00 PM - 3:50 PM Tuesday, Oct. 22   Room: E
Description:  This workshop focuses on explaining important aspects of leveraging AI to enhance GBL. In addition to introducing the process of designing meaningful play from an instructional design perspective, the workshop aims to introduce attendees to the use of machine learning algorithms, such as genetic algorithms, perceptron, and artificial neural networks, to support learning. The workshop offers activities and examples of how AI can successfully enhance GBL and improve learning outcomes.
