PhD Seminar: Gloria Fernandez Nieto- Providing guidance in Multimodal Learning Analytics visual feedback interfaces for Collaborative Classrooms

  Gloria Milena Fernandez Nieto Abstract: Feedback is a crucial aspect of classroom-based learning. Delivering high-quality feedback can help students to make well-informed decisions by understanding their learning goals, teacher’s pedagogical intentions, and their actual performance. However, providing actionable feedback is challenging, especially in large classes with many students or groups to follow up. One way to provide automated feedback is through learning analytics (LA) vis...

ALASI2019: Panel debate – the validity of using student evaluation surveys for performance based funding at Australian universities

Leonie Payne1, Kirsty Kitto1, Michael Pracy1, Jason Lodge2, Abelardo Pardo3 Abstract The Australian Federal Government announced in August 2019 that aspects of the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) Student Experience and Graduate Outcomes surveys will form two of the four key metrics for performance based funding of Australian Universities from 2020. Given the lack of consensus on the validity and appropriate use of student evaluations of teaching, it is time to e...

ALASI2019: Demonstration: Ethical edgecases – a middle space bringing system builders into contact with ethicists

Kirsty Kitto1, Simon Knight1, Linda Corrin2 Abstract This demonstration will run in a workshop mode that explores the issues that arise in relying purely upon ethical frameworks and checklists to influence the behaviour of LA practitioners. It will introduce a newly proposed conception of “practical LA ethics” which places the burden of ethical behaviour upon practitioners. An enabling ethical edge cases database will be used by participants to bring system builders into dialogue with ...

ALASI2019: The Fifth Writing Analytics Workshop: Linking Reflective Writing Analytics to Learning Design

Ming Liu1, Rosalie Goldsmith2,Sumati Ahuja3, Xiaodi Huang4 Abstract Reflective writing is a fundamental learning activity across learning contexts. With the recent advancement of natural language processing techniques, text analytics are able to identify salient textual features of students’ written assignments, such as academic reflective essays and reflective statements, and generate actionable feedback. However, how to best use reflective writing analytics tools, such as AcaWriter, in d...

ALASI2019: Multimodal Analytics for Classroom Proxemics

Roberto Martinez-Maldonado1 and Gloria Fernandez Nieto2 Abstract We use the term Classroom Proxemics to refer to how teachers and students use the classroom space, and the impact of this and the spatial design on learning and teaching. The increasing progress in ubiquitous technology makes it easier and cheaper to track students’ and teacher’s  physical actions unobtrusively, making it possible to consider such data for supporting research, educator interventions, and the provision of feed...

ALASI2019: Learning Analytics Growing Pains – Sociotechnical Infrastructure Changes as LA Tools Mature

Simon Buckingham Shum1, Antonette Shibani2 Abstract As Learning Analytics tools mature, there are often ‘growing pains’ in how the infrastructure adapts to the social and technical requirements of scaling up. Across institutions in Australia, there is increasing work being done in this transitional space, including moving from prototypes to products, institutional adoption of LA, engaging stakeholders, organisational leadership, long term impact, and invisible work in keeping everything go...

The Anna Karenina principle: One university’s approach to the adoption of learning analytics

  Presenter: Dr. Irina Elgort (Presenter), Steven Warburton & Derek White Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand Abstract: Many institutions are making significant investments to build their learning analytics capability yet creating a successful platform for large-sale adoption of learning analytics (LA) is not simple. Building on existing knowledge about LA, we outline our attempt to resolve tensions early in the adoption process and thus, hopefully, “avoid failur...

Designing for Future Learning Environments

Description Designing for Future Learning Environments through Multimodal Learning Analytics The proliferation and ubiquity of computing technologies has opened a new range of technology application in educational research. Multimodal learning analytics are the product of the initiatives to understand learning in its full complexity and dimensionality, and to bridge the gap between teaching and learning across space, time, and media. Hence, learning is a multimodal complex process that links...
