European COST evaluator

I was again invited by the European Commission to serve as an evaluator and expert to assess COST research proposals. COST is a EU funding programme that supports international science and research networks in innovative areas.

EC-TEL 2017

I am on this year's programme committee for the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL 2017), which is taking place 12 - 15 September 2017 in Tallinn, Estonia.

Multimodal Data for Learning

I am on the review board for this special call for papers on "Multimodal Data for Learning" for the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning (JCAL). The special issue deals with new data sources coming from the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, eye-trackers and other camera systems, self-programmable microcomputers such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino. How can these multimodal datasets that combine traditional learning data with different data from physical activity, physiological responses or contextual information be exploited for learning?

New article on Learning Analytics

A new paper that I produced together with colleagues from the University of Mauritius has been published. The full text is open access and can be found here.

SHEILA project

I just joined the SHEILA project network as an Associate Partner. SHEILA stands for "Supporting Higher Education to Integrate Learning Analytics". It's goal is to aid policy making in HEIs at management level to reap benefits from Learning Analytics. A policy framework covering codes of practices, privacy and ethics, as well as quality assurance will be the core outcome. This is very interesting for me as I aim to implement LA in my university.
