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...

HealthSimLAK: Multimodal Learning Analytics meet Patient Manikins

We are collaborating with the UTS Clinical Simulation team at the Faculty of Health to explore the potential that multimodal learning analytics can bring to generate reflection in Healthcare simulations using patient manikins. Healthcare simulations are hands-on learning experiences aimed at allowing students to practice essential skills that they may need when working with real patients in clinical workplaces. Some clinical classrooms at UTS are equipped with patient manikins that can...

UTS ECR Grant 2017: High Performance Teamwork Analytics in Physical Spaces

An UTS ECR grant 2017 (20k) was granted to our CIC Educational Data Science Research Fellow, Dr. Martinez-Maldonado to conduct research in the area of High Performance Teamwork Analytics in Physical Spaces. This project aims to create visual analytics techniques to support collocated, high performance teamwork in areas of professional practice. Supporting teamwork is important, as collaborating effectively is a key 21st century workforce skill. The particular added value of this research is t...

PhD in Learning Analytics

PhD Topics We invite scholarship applications to investigate the following topics, which are broad enough for you to bring your own perspective. If you have your own funding, then you may propose another topic which fits with CIC's priorities. Note that previously advertised projects for which we have found candidates have been removed. You are strongly recommended to take this one hour UTS Open taster, an interactive tutorial (developed by Sophie Abel, one CIC's doctoral researchers) on how...

CIC PhD Students

In September we appointed three PhD students who have become an integral part of the team, working alongside our staff to make an impact in the university and tackle data-driven problems. All their work have a strong transdisciplinary flavour, investigating the interplay between algorithms, ethics, user experience, participatory design and educational theory and practice. Read below to find about their work.   Antonette Shibani Shibani is a PhD student in Learning Analytics at the C...
