Congratulations to PhD student Simon Knight, who has just won the International Association for Computing and Philosophy (IACAP)/Carnegie Mellon, Brian Michael Goldberg Memorial Award for graduate research in the areas of computing and philosophy.

Simon is particularly interested in the role of social epistemology in understanding information seeking, and collaborative knowledge construction platforms such as Wikipedia. His paper at the International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge explored the relationships between learning analytics as forms of assessment, and epistemology, and was shortlisted for the ‘Best Paper’ award. It has now been written up for publication in the Journal of Learning Analytics as “Epistemology, assessment, pedagogy: where learning meets analytics in the middle space”.
