Sean P. Goggins: Group Informatics Researcher

Sean P. Goggins most up to date CV is available at

Sean Goggins is an Assistant Professor at the iSchool at Drexel. He teaches, publishes and conducts research on the uptake and use of information and communication technologies by small groups. Sean conceptualizes group informatics as research that examines the information behavior, knowledge construction, identity development, performance and structural evolution of small, online groups. The long tail of social computing bounds this work; large scale communities are approached from the bottom up in group informatics research. By understanding small groups of online learners, librarians or software engineers (to name just a few), and analyzing traces of their interactions, Group Informatics brings semantics to the clusters discovered in large scale social computing endeavors.
