CIC@LAK22: thought leadership and hard evidence

CIC provides UTS with both thought leadership and hard evidence about Learning Analytics. So it’s no surprise that the team will present multiple times at the premier international forum next month... Universities risk implementing data/analytics strategies that make little impact on real practice, if they don’t work closely with the academics, tutors and students who are expected to use those new tools. This human-centred design approach is one of CIC’s hallmarks, so running through our work...

LAK21 Workshop: A Tutorial on Data Storytelling for Learning Analytics Dashboards

Date APRIL 13, 2021 - DAY 2, 4 PM TO 7 PM PST (according to LAK pre-conference schedule) Abstract From a human-centered perspective, supporting educational stakeholders to interpret dashboards and visualizations poses critical design challenges that may often be trivialized. Teachers’ and students' interpretation of visualized data is essentially the construction of a narrative about the learning process.Applying data storytelling techniques to design these visualizations can support the genera...

Analytics for face-to-face learning

Despite the online revolution, many forms of learning require collocated, embodied expertise. CIC is at the forefront of techniques to provide automated feedback on collocated teamwork. While the pandemic has driven a lot of teaching online, certain forms of learning are impossible to replicate virtually. Hopefully, as we gradually return to campus, students and teachers will once again enjoy the unique energy and experience of being together, working as a team, and using our bodies as well as ...

New video captures CIC/Health collaboration on automated feedback to nursing teams

This exciting new video captures the way that CIC works with faculty academics to identify teaching and learning challenges, co-design new forms of automated feedback, powered by data and analytics, and deliver this via engaging user interfaces. This work comes from the PhD work of Vanessa Echeverria, who recently graduated from CIC, and building on this, the ongoing PhD of Gloria Fernandez-Nieto. Congratulations to them on this ground-breaking work, and to their supervisors (Roberto Martine...

Where is the teacher? Real-time Feedback to Academics on their use of the Collaborative Learning Spaces

The aim of this talk is to discuss the potential of a new metaphor for bringing Learning Analytics into UTS physical learning spaces that we call Classroom Translucence. A translucent classroom or learning space would be that where activity traces can enhance awareness of teaching and learning practices while ensuring privacy and restricting the use of data for a particular situation. This presentation will showcase an in-house UTS Classroom technology that tracks a teacher’s use of UTS learni...

Interpreting and communicating data insights is becoming quite critical in all kind of industries. However, finding the story behind the data and communicating it effectively, is significantly harder than just crunching numbers and plotting data points. This seminar is a brief introduction to how to...
