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, d...

Visualisations to make Graduate Attributes Visible for Reflection

The challenge of supporting student learning in capstones is common to courses across UTS. While students work independently or in teams on their specifically configured projects, the value of ongoing engagement with their teachers and peers is sometimes hard to demonstrate.  We have made inroads in supporting students in these contexts by building a tool for students to actively reflect on their Graduate Attributes as they write about and reflect on their projects. We have built a Participat...

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...
