2016 CRLI ANNUAL REPORT
Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI)
YEAR OF REPORT
In January 2016 CoCo and the Sciences and Technologies of Learning (STL) research network transformed into a new research centre, the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI).
This new centre has strong roots in Education, with substantial involvement from Engineering & IT, Science, Health Sciences and Medicine. As with CoCo, membership of the centre is open to all members of university staff and postgraduate students with a serious interest in research in this area.
CRLI provides a focus for the university’s research on learning and innovation. In addition to conducting fundamental research on learning, the centre investigates educational innovation, including processes and structures which improve the connections between research on learning, sustainable educational innovation and the enhancement of learning outcomes. Its remit also includes researching processes of innovation and change outside formal education, whenever such change involves a significant element of individual, group, organisational or community learning. The centre thereby provides an intellectual home for all staff and students interested in researching learning, innovation and change - in formal education and also in workplace and community settings.
Methodological innovation is a core activity for the centre. This reflects a conviction that the speed and complexity of change in the world demand new forms of inquiry that can connect evidence to action in a timely way. So the centre will develop new methods for linking research and practice.
It will forge close, long-term relationships with a small number of major partner organisations: users of, and sites for, our research. In studying learning and innovation, the centre will advance the field of coordination science: the study of how coordination occurs in the brain, between brain and body, between individuals and their (technology-rich) environment, in groups, in organisations and networks.
CRLI will help the University realise its aspirations to “be the leading, research-intensive university in Australia with outstanding researchers, networks and partnerships that improve the lives of our local and global communities”.
Summary of achievements in 2016
- The Centre came into being on 1st Jan 2016.
- The Centre Management Team (MT) began monthly meetings in March 2016. It consists of 15 people, from EDSW, FEIT, Science, and Health Sciences.
- An Executive Team has been established - consisting of the two co-directors (Peter Goodyear and Peter Reimann) and two deputy directors (Lina Markauskaite and Abelardo Pardo), supported by Sadhbh Warren.
- Membership of the Centre currently stands at ≈215 staff and research students, of whom ≈60 are (external) affiliate members – including PhD alumni. ≈70 members were also involved in the Centre’s predecessor Sciences & Technologies of Learning (SyReNs) network.
- One of the main tasks in 2016 has been to develop and gain approval for the CRLI Strategic Plan (2016-20) and the Operational Plan for 2016. The University’s Strategic Plan also became a resource when it was released in March 2016. These were endorsed by the first meeting of the CRLI Steering Committee 23rd June 2016 and can be found as appendices to this report.
- The MT has also worked on defining a distinctive approach to research capacity building, focussed on the needs of university staff involved in education innovation projects and on RHD training.
- The Centre had a very successful launch event on 2nd August 2016 with ≈120 people attending.
- The Centre has participated in the University’s Education & Research Innovation week (October 2016), in the Faculty’s research partnerships event in early November, and co-presented several events with Sydney Ideas.
- The Wednesday seminar series (Research on Learning and Educational Innovation), which ran throughout 2016, attracted internal and external experts, and international visitors to present their research on learning and educational innovation. Practical organisation was looked after by CRLI PhD students. See the appendices for more information on CRLI events.
- Four SIGs have been established – the Learning Analytics Research Group (a joint venture with the DVCE portfolio, convened by Kathryn Bartimote-Aufflick and Abelardo Pardo) and the Neuroscience and Education SIG (convened by Minkang Kim). Two further SIGs are now being formalized: Teaching and learning for interdisciplinarity, and New learning spaces. See the appendices for more information.
- Two half-time postgraduate fellowships were advertised in July 2016 and filled in September 2016.
- CRLI hosted three international researchers during the year. These scholars presented their recent research results in the CoCo Seminar Series and the CoCo weekly meetings, and also spent highly valued time giving students feedback on their research and consulting with CoCo staff members. These visits also provided opportunities for collaborative writing of journal articles and conference papers, planning future research collaboration, and building bridges with research overseas.
- CRLI aims to provide an active, supportive home for PhD students and ECRs, helping them develop as researchers and connecting them with the national and international research community. In 2016 we continued with activities including an ongoing series of methodology workshops, informal reading groups and a PhD colloquium – held twice a year, with each PhD student giving a 30 minute talk on their work and receiving feedback from staff and other students. We also incorporated a brief presentation from a member of the team into the start of each CRLI weekly lab meeting, as a way of sharing information about current research.
- Discussions have begun with senior staff in DVCE portfolio – the first of our major user partners - to work out the best approach to establishing an ongoing partnership. Priority areas have been identified and DVCE has agreed to fund a half-time postgraduate fellow to work on new learning spaces (starting in March 2017).
- As a new centre, CRLI have developed and implemented a communication strategy to raise our profile and ensure stakeholders understand what we have to offer and how to access relevant expertise. The emphasis in 2016 was on the raising awareness of membership, Centre mission and activities through avenues including a mailing list, blog, Yammer, Twitter, and a holding website. We also made an introductory video; “Who are CRLI”.

CRLI SIGs - ROLES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND EXPECTATIONS
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide a mechanism for researchers with shared interests to work together on projects and activities of mutual concern. They are primary sites for community-building and for the development of research expertise. Among other things, they create methodological, theoretical and other resources for CRLI as a whole.
SIG membership is open to all members of CRLI. People who are not eligible to be members of CRLI may join a SIG at the invitation of the SIG convenors.
Each SIG should have at least one convenor and ideally will have two – or a convenor and a deputy convenor. SIG convenors will be approved by the CRLI Management Team (MT), normally for a two year, renewable, term of office.
Each SIG should plan to:
- Produce a short statement (200-400 words) explaining its core aims
- Organise at least one public event per year
- Organise at least one workshop/course/master class per year
- Organise at least two other SIG meetings per year
- Produce at least three CRLI blog postings a year
- Create and update white papers, annotated bibliographies, lists of recommended research resources etc in its area(s) of expertise
- Identify emerging research opportunities and contribute to the development of joint research activities and research proposals
- Plan and notify CRLI as to the ongoing preferred communication channel/s and storage method for members the SIG
SIGs may co-badge their events with other organisations but should always mention CRLI in event publicity/materials etc.
SIGs will report on their activities to the November meeting of the MT each year. This (1 page) report should also contain an outline plan for the year ahead.
New SIGs may be proposed to the MT in response to a call for expressions of interest.
SIGs recognised in 2016
- Learning Analytics Research Group (joint with DVCE portfolio)
- Neuroscience and Education
- Innovative Learning Spaces
- Interdisciplinary knowledge, learning and innovation
There are calls for expressions of interest at least once each year.
