ItemExploring study profiles of Computer Science students with Social Network Analysis( 2022-01-04)Information technology is widely adapted in all levels of education. The extensive information resources facilitate enhanced human capacity and the social environment to support learning. In particular, Social Network Analysis (SNA) has been broadly used in teaching and learning practices. In this paper, we perform community detection analysis to identify the learning behavior profiles of undergraduate computer science students in a Nordic university. The social network was created using 273 responses to an online survey. The students themselves provided their social connections at the university, and node attributes were created based on responses to questions regarding Educational Values, Goals Orientation, Self-efficacy, and the university teaching methods. We analyze the biggest communities to identify the factors that characterize the learning strategy and preferences of undergraduate computer science students.
