The Collective Learning and Intelligence Group (CLIG) is an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Minnesota. CLIG members hold various research interests. But we share an interest in advancing learning that is collaborative, connected, connective, and/or collective. Toward this end, we design innovative technology-enhanced learning environments, develop analytic applications, and conduct collaborative research in various educational settings. Please get in touch with Prof Chen if you're interested in joining CLIG!
