PLSA UX/LX Workshop (CIC Ideation Studio)
This workshop brings together people from multiple universities to share what we know about the design of good User Experience and Learner Experience with systems like OnTask, that enable personalised student feedback at scale, by providing Personalised Learning Support Actions (PLSAs).
Through a combination of briefings and hands-on exercises, we will share what we know about the UX/LX dimensions of such tools, and map key challenges and ways to support each other in addressing them.
Workshop leads: Simon Buckingham Shum (CIC Director), Susan Hansen (UTS Faculty of Engineering & IT; Tobias Design), Olivia Rajit (UTS LX Lab)

Holly Derry, MPH, Associate Director of Behavioral Science, University of Michigan Office of Academic Innovation
Holly is a behavioral scientist with more than 20 years of experience developing tailored behavior change interventions in health care and higher ed environments. She applies a variety of behavior change strategies, theory, and research to improve the habits of students who use the tools developed by Academic Innovation. Calling on motivational interviewing techniques, “sticky” communication strategies, and plain language standards, she crafts tailored messages that match each student’s profile. This means students receive a clear and personally meaningful message that they are less likely to resist and more likely to remember.
This talk will be held in a separate Zoom room and recorded
