Lead Presenter

Ryan Baker is Associate Professor of Cognitive Studies at Teachers College, Columbia University. He earned his Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Baker is currently serving as the founding president of the International Educational Data Mining Society, and as associate editor of the Journal of Educational Data Mining. He has taught the largest MOOC thus far on educational data mining, with over 50,000 students enrolled, and has written an online textbook based on the course, Big Data and Education. Dr. Baker also served as the first technical director of the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center DataShop, the largest public repository for data on the interaction between learners and educational software. His research combines educational data mining and quantitative field observation methods to better understand how students respond to educational software, and how these responses impact their learning and long-term outcomes. He studies these issues within intelligent tutors, simulations, multi-user virtual environments, and educational games.
