Personal profile

Personal profile

Luc Paquette is an associate professor in the department of curriculum & instruction. He completed his PhD in computer science at the University of Sherbrooke where he studied the design knowledge representations for intelligent tutoring systems and the use of those representations to automatically generate pedagogical content. After his PhD, professor Paquette worked as a post-doctoral research associate at Teachers College, Columbia University where he used educational data mining techniques and knowledge engineering techniques to study the behavior of students using digital learning environment.

Research Interests

Professor Paquette is interested in the study of students' behaviors as they use digital learning environments. To achieve this objective, he applies educational data mining, learning analytics and knowledge engineering approaches to identify and model pedagogically relevant behaviors. Professor Paquette has studied multiple different behaviors, including misuse of digital learning environments, emotions, self-regulated learning and collaborative learning, across varied environments, including Intelligent Tutoring Systems, educational games, online courses and scientific simulation microworlds. He is interested in the usage of models of student behavior to study the relationship between those behaviors and learning outcomes, improve the design of digital learning environments and support the teachers’ usage of those environments in their classroom.
