侯惠澤博士2008年畢業於台灣師範大學資訊教育研究所博士班，目前為國立臺灣科技大學應用科技研究所科學教育與數位學習領域教授，同時也是臺灣科技大學網路學習研究中心迷你數位教育遊戲開發團隊(NTUST MEG)主持人，他的研究專長在於學習行為模式分析、數位教育遊戲之教學機制與系統發展、Web 2.0教學策略、教師知識管理系統等議題。
侯惠澤教授為教學科技領域中學習行為模式分析的國際重要學者之一，尤其精通運用與整合多維度分析方法(包含量化內容分析、群集分析與序列分析等)分析學習歷程行為模式，發表教學科技的研究文章已超過100篇，其中包含40篇以上的SSCI期刊論文(2014/6統計，共計發表教學科技領域SSCI期刊論文38篇，其中，第一作者或通訊作者占七成，其中有5篇為單一作者，且有10篇是發表在該領域該年度影響係數(Impact Factor, IF)排名之前10%內的頂尖SSCI期刊中)。侯惠澤教授為近五年來(2009~2014/6) ISI Web of Science SSCI資料庫中在Education and Educational Research領域SSCI期刊中以行為模式(behavioral pattern)或內容分析(content analysis)為主題關鍵字進行檢索，研究文章數量均為全球前三名內具影響力的國際學者(2014六月統計)。侯老師已擔任超過20個國際教育相關期刊的編輯委員或審查委員(其中包含擔任12個以上數位學習領域SSCI期刊的審查委員)，並包含擔任國際專書主編。由於其於數位學習與學習行為模式分析上的成果，他於2010年獲得行政院國家科學委員會獎勵優秀年輕學者的吳大猷先生紀念獎、臺灣科技大學2011年傑出研究及創作獎，並獲國科會優秀年輕學者計畫四年期補助計畫與臺灣科技大學年輕學者研究獎。
侯教授主要研究特色為致力於針對較複雜學習情境(如:各種合作問題解決的學習活動歷程)之長時間或大量的實徵學習歷程編碼進行縝密的之量化內容分析、序列分析與各種學習行為模式之視覺化與深入剖析，並針對其研究方法進行不斷地整合與創新，也將此分析運用於教育遊戲中學習者的行為模式分析。其中關於序列分析運用於教學科技方面的研究，2008年於Educational Technology & Society期刊所發表的SSCI期刊著作，為檢索近六年來(2008~2014/6) ISI Web of Science SSCI資料庫中在Education and Educational Research領域SSCI期刊中以序列分析(sequential analysis)為關鍵字檢索的研究中被引用次數最高的文章(2014六月統計)。侯教授關於數位學習行為模式分析的實徵研究、研究方法的創新性運用與研究方法之研發的SSCI著作超過20篇，已經具備數位學習行為模式分析領域相當之國際影響力。侯教授並受邀於各校演講數位學習行為模式分析議題超過十餘場次以上，其中並受邀於2014年由科技部與師大合辦之全國資訊教育學門數位學習研究方法與議題進階工作坊擔任序列分析與內容分析方法的主講專家。
在國際交流方面，侯老師為華人探究學習學會(Chinese Society for Inquiry Learning, CSIL)理事，並為全球華人GCCCE (Global Chinese Conference on Computers in Education) 2014研討會之子會議 Joyful Learning and Society議程副主席，積極從事國際交流，於近數年連續分別於數位學習7個場次重要國際研討會中申請或受邀組織舉辦關於科技輔助STEM學習以及數位教育遊戲的Workshop，並擔任超過10場次的教學科技國際研討會的議程委員或Workshop Organizer，積極在所屬的專業領域下長期經營國際合作關係。
Dr. Huei-Tse Hou received his Ph. D degree in Graduate Institute of Information and Computer Education from National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) in 2008. He is now a Professor of Graduate Institute of Applied Science and Technology, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) and the Director of Mini-Educational Game development Group in E-learning Research Center of NTUST (NTUST MEG). Dr. Hou’s research interests include learning behavioral pattern analysis, game-based learning, Web 2.0 teaching strategies, and teacher knowledge management, etc.
Dr. Huei-Tse Hou is one of the important international scholars of learning behavioral pattern analysis in the field of educational technology. He especially specializes in integrating and applying multi-dimensional analysis to students’ learning behavioral patterns (including quantitative content analysis, cluster analysis, sequential analysis, etc). Dr. Hou has published more than 100 research papers in the field of educational technology, including more than 40 SSCI journal papers (calculated by 2014/6; 38 SSCI journal papers were published by Dr. Hou, who was listed as the first or corresponding author in 70% of these papers and as the single author in 5 articles. 10 articles were published in the journals whose impact factor, IF, was in the top 10% of the field and year.)
Dr. Huei-Tse Hou is an influential international scholar and the number of his published papers is within the top three of the world (calculated by 2014/6), searched with the keywords of ‘behavioral pattern’ and ‘content analysis’ in the SSCI journals of Education and Educational Research field, in the ISI Web of Science SSCI database within recent five years (2009~2014/6). Dr. Hou serves as the editorial board member or the reviewer for more than 20 international educational journals (including the reviewer for more than 12 SSCI journals related to digital learning field). Owing to his outstanding performance in research of learning behavioral pattern analysis, Dr. Hou received the Ta-You Wu Memorial Award (Young Outstanding Researcher Award) from the National Science Council, Taiwan in 2010, the NTUST Outstanding Research Award in 2011, four-year project of Young Outstanding Researcher funded by National Science Council, and the NTUST Young Outstanding Researcher Award.
Dr. Hou is mainly devoted to careful quantitative content analysis, sequential analysis, and visualization and investigation of all kinds of learning behavioral patterns for long-term or large-scale empirical learning process in more complex learning contexts (e.g. collaborative problem-solving learning process), as well as integration and innovation in research methods. In terms of the application of sequential analysis in educational technology research, the article published in Educational Technology & Society Journal (SSCI) in 2008 is the study cited the most (by 2014/6), searched with the keywords of ‘sequential analysis’ in the SSCI journals of Education and Educational Research field, in the ISI Web of Science SSCI database within recent six years (2008~2014/6). Dr. Hou has published more than 20 SSCI journal papers related to the empirical studies, innovation, and development of research methods of the digital learning behavioral patterns, thus being internationally influential in this field.
Dr. Hou has been invited for more than ten speeches on the topic of digital learning behavioral pattern analysis. Dr. Hou was also invited as the keynote speaker on the topic of sequential analysis and quantitative content analysis in the advanced workshop of digital learning research method and issues held by Ministry of Science and Technology and National Taiwan Normal University in 2014.
In terms of international communication, Dr. Hou is the managing supervisor of Chinese Society for Inquiry Learning, CSIL, and the co-Chair of sub-conference program ‘Joyful Learning and Society’ in Global Chinese Conference on Computers in Education 2014. Pursuing international communication, Dr. Hou applied for or was invited to be an organizer for the workshops of digital educational games and STEM education issues in 7 international conferences these years. He also served as the program committee member or the workshop organizer in more than 10 international educational technology conferences, eager to develop a long-term international cooperation relationship with his specialties.
On the other hand, Dr. Hou also applied and promoted the findings of his research to the teaching context, directing his team to participate in many game competitions for all Chinese for prize, holding teacher workshops, increasing the quality and acceptability of the games. In addition, Dr. Hou is devoted to promoting game-based innovation teaching activities at schools, including digital game-based teaching activities, the development and promotion of creative teaching plans for educational board games and parent-child play. Dr. Hou is also responsible for many industry-university cooperative research projects related to game-based learning and helps design and develop game-based learning products.
Dr. Hou also has contribution in the research and practice of teacher knowledge management and teacher professional learning community. He is responsible for leading the research team (from NTUST and NTNU), generating the ideas, planning, designing, and managing the team members, constructing and developing WIDE-KM, a digital knowledge management platform for teachers that integrates instructional design theories and knowledge management strategies. Based on the belief that one should contribute to the society from research findings, the platform has become a representative teacher knowledge management blog community in Taiwan with more than 30,000 members’ participation within ten years (by 2014/6) since its early construction in 2004 and promotion for years. The related project was also chosen as the outstanding research application project of the year by the science education development center of National Science Council in 2009. Dr. Hou also serves as the international editor for books on knowledge management field and is responsible for editing three international academic books on knowledge management. So far, all online chapter files of these three books have been downloaded more than 100,000 times by more than 100 countries or regions (sum of times for downloading all chapters in three books, by 2014/6). Therefore, these books are internationally influential to some extent.
