Show Notes

Do you ever find yourself being more of a listener - a lurker, if you will - in a conversation than a participator? Maybe you thought you weren’t contributing much, and if so, you might be surprised by the fascinating research of Dr. Nia Dowell. By using a special computer analysis technique called Natural Language Processing (NLP), Nia and her colleagues have been able to define and analyze the contributions of all kinds of different team participants, and her results have all kinds of important implications for the classroom and group-work at every level of education and even in society more broadly.
