Hendrik Drachsler gave a keynote @ the LDE CEL Annual Meeting under the theme ‘Developing a Culture of Learning Analytics'. Hendrik summarized the achievements of the Highly Informative and Learning Analytics (HILA) research program, that is the successor of the Trusted Learning Analytics research program conducted in Frankfurt, Germany.  After two years of digital annual meetings, finally CEL could invite again to their annual meeting 2022 at the CEL Teaching Lab. Among keynotes from Simon Buckingham Shum (University of Technology Sydney), and Alyssa Friend Wise (New York University), Hendrik presented the latest research outcomes on Highly Informative and Learning Analytics (HILA) research program. Highly informative and competency-based feedback is costly and can be best given in small teacher-to-learner settings. According to research, feedback has a powerful effect on learning success;…

The German podcast "FutureSchool" looks at the classroom of the future and which technical aids for learning could be conceivable, but are also already being developed. Luis and DIPF education expert and our colleague Dana Kube consider together where technology is superior to teachers and when, in turn, teachers are unbeatable as real people with real experiences: https://blog.bildungsserver.de/klassenzimmer-der-zukunft/ The three-part podcast "FutureSchool" was created as part of the BMBF project "enorM - Lernen von (ÜBER)MORGEN". In the project, which is part of the "Science Year 2022 - Inquired about!", pupils and researchers have exchanged ideas in numerous formats, for example about new subjects and digital learning support.

Invited talks about providing feedback with learning analytics

Assessment, Feedback, General education, Invited talk, Learning Analytics, Self-Regulation
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…

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: Actionable Components of a Model for Augmented Feedback

Feedback, Higher Education, Multimodal Learning Analytics, Workshop
A new workshop paper was presented at the MILeS 2022 workshop written by Daniele Di Mitri, Sebastian Gombert, Onur Karademir entitled: Reflecting on the Actionable Components of a Model for Augmented Feedback. The MILeS 2022 – Multimodal Immersive Learning Systems workshop took place on the 13th of September at EC-TEL 2022 conference taking place in Toulouse, France. The paper will appear in the CEUR proceedings. Abstract. In this paper, we introduce the concept of "Augmented feedback'' as an enhanced version of traditional educational feedback enriched by digital data and artificial intelligence. To provide an operational definition of augmented feedback, we acknowledge previous research in the fields of technology-enhanced learning and learning analytics. We argue why augmented feedback constitutes a promising research direction for the future of learning. We define the…
