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...

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 ge...

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 a...

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 Martin...

Ensuring automated feedback is pedagogically sound (DAFFI 2020)

We all know that feedback is critical for learning — and we all appreciate how demanding this can be for educators to provide, to many students, in a consistently motivating, and detailed way. This is a challenge studied by educational researchers of feedback design and feedback literacy.   Designing Automated Feedback for Impact brought some of the leading researchers in this field into a 2-day dialogue with researchers developing automated-feedback tools using Learning Analytics/AI.  Th...

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...

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...

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...
