Abstract

As universities in the UK become increasingly diverse, one common challenge is how best to socially integrate ethnic minority and international students into the classroom and larger campus. Indeed, research currently demonstrates that students most often form social and learning connections with peers from the same ethnicity or culture, despite the benefits of intergroup connections. However, few studies have looked at student social networks to determine how they influence actual behaviours in group learning activities. In this research, Social Network Analysis and Learning Analytics methods will be used to explore the role of social networks in classroom participation and attainment for ethnic minority and international students, highlighting replicable interventions that can help promote social cohesion in the UK.
