At the nexus of learning and innovation

Learning analytics - Can we rigorously measure impact on students?


Learning Analytics - Can we rigorously measure impact on students?

When deciding to implement a learning analytics (LA) tool, institutions often seek out evidence that it will result in measurable benefits. As most LA interventions are likely to produce a positive effect, institutions look for tools that demonstrate the largest, most meaningful effects.

Audio Walks in Pedagogy - Panel discussion and Q&A

The FASS3999 Interdisciplinary unit pilot program has seen the development of an innovative pedagogical augmented reality tool to help orient themselves at Westmead, not just functionally and geographically, but in a multisensorial fashion. The audio walk (as distinct from a comparatively ‘sense-neutral’ podcast) uses binaural sound to put the walker in a twinned acoustic space, with the effect of creating a sensorial connection to the environment and hypersensitivity to the individual’s embodied way of being in the world.

Aligning space, educational theory and practice

A number of CRLI Learning Spaces SIG members were involved in the development of the University of Sydney learning spaces at Westmead. Last month, Pippa Yeoman and Stephanie Wilson hosted a guided tour of the WECC Level 1. This learning space is an existing project that pushes both spatial and philosophical boundaries.
