Congratulations Dr Vanessa Echeverria!

We're delighted to announce that Vanessa Echeverria has graduated from our Learning Analytics Doctoral Program! She submitted a thesis that required just a few typographical fixes, earning the praise of her international examiners. Co-supervised by Roberto Martinez-Maldonado and Simon Buckingham Shum, and working closely with UTS Faculty of Health academics, her research broke new ground with the development of multimodal analytics to provide visual feedback to teams of nurses in the simulation...

AIED 2020 Best Paper!

CIC-led team scoops Best Paper at the top international forum for AI in Education! We're proud to say that applied Learning Analytics work from a UTS team led by Roberto Martinez-Maldonado (now @Monash Uni) was awarded Best Paper at AIED2020: The 21st International Conference Artificial Intelligence in Education, which is the premier research conference in the field. As ever, papers in this field are highly interdisciplinary, in this case seeing connections forged across educational data sci...

CIC at (online) international conferences

Research is fuelled by academics connecting through high quality, peer reviewed conferences — all of which had to shift online this year due to the pandemic. CIC was out in force, albeit into the small hours on some occasions!... For CIC, the International Conference on Learning Analytics is a primary venue — and notably, No.6 and the only conference in Google Scholar's impact rankings for Educational Technology. As usual, CIC had a strong presence with our academics and students contributing p...

How well do you make use of a learning space?

"Classroom Proxemics" refers to how teachers and students use a learning space. CIC has engaged UTS academics in evaluating a range of visual analytics that make their use of space visible in completely new ways. Does it make sense? Is it ethical? In concert with making the best use of online learning at UTS, an enormous amount of learning and teaching still happens face-to-face (except when there's a global pandemic on!). The UTS learning.futures model underpins the massive redesign of our on-...

It’s one thing to have rich learning data, but what’s the story?

CIC’s work with the Health Faculty has hit a new milestone. As nurses work in teams in an experimental version of the simulation ward, they are now generating data streams from sensors detecting their position, patient treatment actions and arousal levels. A student observer watching the team also logs more complex actions on an iPad that cannot be automatically sensed. This generates a rich dataset of the team’s performance, and in an earlier story we reported the validation of a first prototy...

CIC showcases at EduTECH Australia

CIC’s Director Simon Buckingham Shum was honoured to be invited to present at EduTECH Australia. With over 10,000 delegates, Simon shared the advanced feedback tools being used by UTS educators and students, emphasising the need to use technology to advance progressive teaching and learning. Replay his 20min talk and download his slides, which introduce the work of our final year doctoral researchers Shibani Antonette, Vanessa Echeverria and Carlos Prieto Alvarez: Simon hosted a series of rou...

CIC co-chairs Collaboration Analytics workshop

The International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is the premier research conference in the field of Collaborative Learning from a Learning Sciences perspective. This is a bi-annual event that brings together computer scientists, learning scientists, education expets and practitioners to present cutting edge work applied to understanding and supporting the very complex phenomena of collaboration. This year, CSCL was held in Lyon, France from 17 to 21st of June, 2...

Latest advances in personalised feedback to nursing teams

In an exciting new paper from the Health Simulation Analytics project, we document our approach to give meaning to multimodal group activity data, in order to give personalised feedback to teams as quickly as possible. Inspired by the metaphor of social translucence, we are proposing a vision to make evidence of collaboration translucent. In doing so, we emphasise that besides the obvious social dimension, collaboration also involves epistemic (the task at hand), physical (the use of tools, d...

CIC @ London Festival of Learning 2018

The London Festival of Learning was a unique convergence in June of three major international conferences in learning and technology: International Conference of the Learning Sciences, Artficial Intelligence in Education and Learning@Scale. CIC's Director Simon Buckingham Shum presented a keynote address at ICLS, a bi-annual conference that gathers minds from all aspects of the learning sciences, including empirical, conceptual, theoretical, design-based, practitioner and policy perspecti...

Telling better educational stories with data visualisation

As we drown in information, "dashboards" have become pervasive, but how we present the information to the end user is a challenge. Dashboards are often too complex with users bombarded with information that may not be relevant. Let’s take education as an example, where dashboards are being designed to help students with different aspects of their learning, for example,  managing time effectively, accessing key learning resources, or gaining a richer picture of their progress.   But here's the...
