Kui Xie awarded TDA seed grant

TDA congratulates Kui Xie, PhD, who received the first-ever TDA@OhioState seed grant for $24,970 for his proposal Using Learning Analytics in Examining Students’ Learning Habits in Online Nursing Classes. Xie is the Cyphert Distinguished Professor in the College of Education and Human Ecology’s Department of Educational Studies and the director of the Digital Learning Research Lab.

The primary objective of TDA’s inaugural seed grant is to catalyze formation of new, interdisciplinary teams that can generate preliminary technologies, data, and findings on learning analytics that are applicable to subsequent applications for extramural funding. The next calls for grant proposals will likely go out in spring 2016.
