Plenary Speech: Understanding “Searching as Learning” in the AI Era
      Dr. Chei Sian Lee, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
Speaker Bio: Dr. Chei Sian Lee is currently an Associate Professor at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, where she is also the Associate Chair (Faculty). She is actively involved in research on issues related to everyday user-information interaction at work, school or play.  Specifically, her research focuses on how digital and emerging technologies can be designed to facilitate everyday user-information exchanges and be used to change social behaviors, benefit communities, and create social good. She has been involved in several funded projects in varying capacities as principal investigator, co-investigator and collaborator. More recently, she has been investigating the deepfakes phenomena from an information-oriented perspective. Her work has been widely published in international journals including Journal of Educational Computing Research, Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, Computers and Education, Computers in Human Behavior and New Media and Society. Dr Lee is currently on the Editorial Advisory Board for Computers and Education, Online Information Review, The Electronic Library and Journal for STEM Education Research. Dr Lee received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer and Information Sciences from the National University of Singapore and her PhD in Management Information Systems from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Liautaud Graduate School of Business.

Summary of Speech: Searching as Learning (SAL), a learning process with potential knowledge gain that occurs during searches in a digital environment, is an emerging field in human-computer interaction (HCI) research, especially with the recent technological advancements such as generative artificial intelligence (GAI). Many studies have investigated SAL’s learning perspective and facets supported by traditional search systems, such as web search engines, to access, search, and retrieve information to fulfill users’ learning intentions. The impacts of GAI and emerging technologies and their disruption to the existing SAL process need to be clarified. This presentation presents a series of studies related to SAL and to understand how GAI can help learners during SAL.
