In the month of November, Ioana Jivet was invited to share her work on two occasions. The first was an invited lecture in the course FDH3006 Introduction to Learning Analytics part of a PhD Program at KTH Stockholm in collaboration with the University of Bergen, Norway and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The talk covered the topic of "Generating highly informative feedback with learning analytics" and addressed the question of how we can design effective feedback to students in online environments using learning analytics. The second talk was given as part of the event 100 DAYS OF... Data for Learning organised by the Centre for Education and Learning at TU Delft. The presentation covered the topic of student facing-learning analytics and goal setting. The talk was recorded and is available…

Call for Papers: Multimodal and Immersive Systems for Skills Development and Education Guest editor(s):  Daniele Di Mitri, DIPF, Germany Bibeg Limbu, TU Delft, The Netherlands Jan Schneider, DIPF, Germany Deniz Iren, Open University, The Netherlands Michail Giannakos, NTNU, Norway Daniel Spikol, University of Copenhagen, Denmark Roland Klemke, Open University, The Netherlands Rationale for publications During the last decade, we have seen an enormous penetration of multimodal and immersive systems such as virtual, augmented reality and motion-based systems. Such systems, along with rapidly evolving technological affordances (e.g., multimodal interaction, tactile feedback) powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and sensors, are attempting to redefine how we interact and learn with technology. This attempt has long-term implications for human-computer interaction and technology-enhanced learning, enabling new forms of personalised, contextual, and deliberate practice of skills…

BR Radio: Roboter statt Lehrerinnen und Lehrer? Wie sollte die Schule der Zukunft aussehen?

Artificial Intelligence, Invited talk, Learning Analytics, Learning Design, Robots in Education, School
Ist es denkbar, dass wir irgendwann keine echten Lehrer*innen mehr haben? Stattdessen fahren Roboter durch das Klassenzimmer und erklären alles? Wäre das überhaupt gut – wenn ja wie? Lasst uns gemeinsam darüber reden. Diese Sendung funktioniert in zwei Richtungen – ihr könnt natürlich alle Fragen stellen über Roboter in der Schule. UND: Ihr könnt einem Forscher sagen, bei was ihr wirklich gerne einen Roboter hättet. Denn das ist der Beruf von unserem Gast Onur Karademir – er promoviert im Bereich der Educational Technologies und findet raus, wann Lerntechnologien helfen und wann nicht. Die Sendung "RadioMikro" hier anhören

Our paper titled "Caught in the Lifelong Learning Maze: Helping People with Learning Analytics and Chatbots to Find Personal Career Paths" was accepted at the 13th International Conference on Distance Learning and Education (ICDLE 2022) held at the University of Barcelona, Spain. Atezaz Ahmad participated in the conference and presented their publication. The article will be published (open access) in the International Journal of Information and Education Technology. Abstract: Current lifelong learning platforms offer users a query option to select a wide variety of courses. However, finding a suitable course among the seemingly endless catalogs of options presented by the platforms is not straightforward. We argue that digital counseling can enhance this process. In this paper, we present a set of three formative studies where we explored the main aspects…

New Pub: Untangling connections between challenges in the adoption of learning analytics in higher education

Empirical Study, Higher Education, Journal, Learning Analytics, Publication
[caption id="attachment_4599" align="alignnone" width="967"] Associations of challenges and ethics: (a) none, (b) prep-partial, and (c) full adoption institutions[/caption] Potential benefits of learning analytics (LA) for improving students' performance, predicting students' success, and enhancing teaching and learning practice have increasingly been recognized in higher education. However, the adoption of LA in higher education institutions (HEIs) to date remains sporadic and predominantly small in scale due to several socio-technical challenges. To better understand why HEIs struggle to scale LA adoption, it is needed to untangle adoption challenges and their related factors. This paper presents the findings of a study that sought to investigate the associations of adoption factors with challenges HEIs face in the adoption of LA and how these associations are compared among HEIs at different scopes of adoption. The study…
