Emotion in Social Media - Doctoral Dissertation by Galen Panger. The role of emotion in social media has been the subject of considerable research and media attention.

Emotion in Social Media - Doctoral Dissertation by Galen Panger

But while stereotypes about the emotional profile of status updates — that they are overly-positive, or overly-angry — have solidified, evidence remains circumstantial and indirect. Further, although researchers have made numerous efforts to use the emotions we express in status updates to make inferences about our emotional lives — generating national happiness indices, predicting mental illnesses and evaluating emotional outcomes of experimental interventions — little is known about the validity of these inferences at the individual level, and researchers have largely ignored the impact of self-presentation and privacy concerns on validity. Finally, while debate continues about the emotional impacts of browsing social media in the course of day-to-day life, researchers have focused only on a limited set of emotions, rather than investigating the range of human emotion.

<nettime> Latour, Bruno: On Actor Network Theory: A few clarifications 1

Actor–network theory - Wikipedia. Broadly speaking, ANT is a constructivist approach in that it avoids essentialist explanations of events or innovations (i. e.

Actor–network theory - Wikipedia

ANT explains a successful theory by understanding the combinations and interactions of elements that make it successful, rather than saying it is true and the others are false). However, it is distinguished from many other STS and sociological network theories for its distinct material-semiotic approach. Background and context[edit] ANT appears to reflect many of the preoccupations of French post-structuralism, and in particular a concern with non-foundational and multiple material-semiotic relations. At the same time, it was much more firmly embedded in English-language academic traditions than most post-structuralist-influenced approaches.

A Community of Practice for Knowledge Translation Trainees:... : Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions. A growing number of researchers and trainees identify knowledge translation (KT) as their field of study or practice.

A Community of Practice for Knowledge Translation Trainees:... : Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions

Yet, KT educational and professional development opportunities and established KT networks remain relatively uncommon, making it challenging for trainees to develop the necessary skills, networks, and collaborations to optimally work in this area. The Knowledge Translation Trainee Collaborative is a trainee‐initiated and trainee‐led community of practice established by junior knowledge translation researchers and practitioners to: examine the diversity of knowledge translation research and practice, build networks with other knowledge translation trainees, and advance the field through knowledge generation activities.

An investigation into social learning activities by practitioners in open educational practices. Bieke Schreurs1, Antoine Van den Beemt1, Fleur Prinsen1, Gabi Witthaus2, Gráinne Conole2, and Maarten De Laat1 1Open Universiteit Nederland, 2University of Leicester, UK Abstract By investigating how educational practitioners participate in activities around open educational practices (OEP), this paper aims at contributing to an understanding of open practices and how these practitioners learn to use OEP.

An investigation into social learning activities by practitioners in open educational practices

Our research is guided by the following hypothesis: Different social configurations support a variety of social learning activities. The social configuration of OEPs is investigated by an operationalization into the dimensions (1) practice, (2) domain, (3) collective identity, and (4) organization. The results show how practitioners of six different OEPs learn, while acting and collaborating through a combination of offline and online networks.

Planning and evaluating social learning

Here is a video where we provide an overview this new version, along with an example of its applicability. Going through each cycle of the framework, we describe how it can be used for developing social learning and its ability to transform practice. We are writing this up, but this video gives you a preview of what’s to come. Etd. Cultivating a Community of Practice. CoPChapterSchultz.

Latent Dirichlet allocation - Wikipedia. Topics[edit] In LDA, each document may be viewed as a mixture of various topics where each document is considered to have a set of topics that are assigned to it via LDA. This is identical to probabilistic latent semantic analysis (pLSA), except that in LDA the topic distribution is assumed to have a sparse Dirichlet prior. The sparse Dirichlet priors encode the intuition that documents cover only a small set of topics and that topics use only a small set of words frequently. ContentServer.asp-1.

Bricolage - Wikipedia. In the arts, bricolage (French for "DIY" or "do-it-yourself projects") is the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available, or a work created by such a process. The term bricolage has also been used in many other fields, including philosophy, critical theory, education, computer software, and business. Overview[edit] Bricolage is a French loanword that means the process of improvisation in a human endeavor. The word is derived from the French verb bricoler ("to tinker"), with the English term DIY ("Do-it-yourself") being the closest equivalent of the contemporary French usage.

Di Domenico et al 2010 ETP Accepted published version open access 3. Tsaighosal. 568949b608ae051f9af758b4. British Library EThOS: Online value creation. This thesis is based on a related set of nine papers I published between 2004 and 2010. Six of these papers are sole authored and I was the lead author for the three joint authored papers. Four underlying themes are identified which underpin the research I have done. Firstly, market entry through the dot com model which was covered in my first published paper (Laffey, 2004). This paper identified my second research theme, network effects in entrepreneurial markets, covered in Laffey (2005.; 2007b) which examined gambling markets and my third theme, the importance of search and paid click concepts, analysed in Laffey (2007a), Laffey and Sharp (2008) and Laffey et al (2009).

My third theme of search then led naturalIy to my final theme, the development of online value creation concepts, which was explored through research into comparison websites (Laffey, 2009c, 2010; Laffey and Gandy, 2009b). British Library EThOS: Online value creation.
