At the nexus of learning and innovation

Dalal Abdulaziz Alfadda

Dalal's project aims at investigating the impact of the grammar of graphics theory, and the layered grammar of graphics philosophy on teaching and learning data visualisations in a collaborative setting. The project applies peer tutoring which is considered one of the effective pedagogical methods. Additionally, the project uses three strategies: self-explaining, worked examples, and problem solving. The project will employ qualitative and quantitative methods since there is little known in how students learn visualising data. Additionally, this research adopts the design-based research (DBR) approach for developing the technological pedagogical materials and learning measurement tools.

Keywords: Data visualisation, Peer-tutoring, Grammar of Graphics theory, ggplot2.
