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-c...

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 ...

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 prototyp...

Playing cards that empower teachers and students to join the analytics co-design process

Human-centred software design gives all stakeholders an active voice in the design of the systems that they are expected to use. However, this is not yet commonplace in Learning Analytics. Co-design techniques from other domains have much to offer in principle, but in fact there are few detailed accounts of exactly how well such techniques work for learning analytics. CIC Doctoral Researcher Carlos Prieto-Alvarez has developed a deck of cards for Learning Analytics design, called LA-DECK. Like ...

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, 20...

CIC leads on Human-Centred Learning Analytics

Simon Buckingham Shum and Roberto Martinez-Maldonado from CIC, with long-standing colleague Rebecca Ferguson (UK Open University), have just edited Human-Centred Learning Analytics as a special issue of the Journal of Learning Analytics. For the first time, this brings together exemplars of how the rich expertise that now exists in human-centred design communities can be brought to bear in learning analytics, so that diverse stakeholders can be given a voice to shape the design of the tools they...

CIC @ LAK 2019

CIC was one of the most visible Learning Analytics centres at this year's international conference. Learn more about our diverse contributions. UTS was again contributing strongly at the annual International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge (LAK). This year's LAK was distinctive for CIC, with one of the invited keynotes being delivered by our very own  Shirley Alexander, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education & Students), who told the story of the UTS journey towards ...

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, dev...

Creating the Translucent Classroom

UTS, through its Learning.Futures initiative and its strong investment in innovative learning spaces and classroom technologies, is empowering teaching staff and students to integrate and embrace the best of online and face-to-face experiences. But in this blended learning model, how do you make visible the ‘teaching and learning’ in the physical classroom? To address this question, Dr Roberto Martinez-Maldonado and his team have developed the ‘Translucent Classroom’ project, which provides a l...

Giving stakeholders a voice in analytics design

AI and analytics are complex technologies – so how do we build trust in them? Doctoral researcher Carlos Prieto-Alvarez is adapting co-design techniques to give academics and students a voice in shaping next generation tools. Postgraduate students designing their own mobile analytics dashboard Co-design and participatory design for learning analytics requires a clear vision of what is learning and how data analysis can be used to benefit participants. Researchers and academics commonly design ...
