Assessing learning dispositions/academic mindsets

A few years ago Ruth and I spent a couple of days with the remarkable Larry Rosenstock at High Tech High, and were blown away by the creativity and passion that he and his team bring to authentic learning. At that point they were just beginning to conceive the idea of a Graduate School of Education (er… run by a high school?!). Yes indeed. Now they’re flying, running the Deeper Learning conference in a few weeks, and right now, the Deeper Learning MOOC [DLMOOC] is doing a great job of bringing practitioners and researchers together, and that’s just from the perspective of someone on the edge who has only managed to replay the late night (in the UK) Hangouts and[…]

Research Metro Map

At the Festival of Postgraduate Research event held on Friday 21/02/2014 at Bristol, we presented a metro map of our research interests. Not surprisingly there was a great deal of overlap in our research areas – which has been plotted on the metro map. Although it provided visitors to our stall with a great overview of our research interests, it was more important to us, as a research centre, to see the relationships between us.  What was interesting was being able to observe the emergence of a dialogue as we looked at the map on the day, not only in terms of shared interests but in the potential links. We intend to continue the discussion to develop this map further[…]

Dispositional, Complex Systems Analytics @ LASI

We’ve just got back from an intensely busy, creative and enjoyable week at LASI13, Stanford University, where Ruth Deakin Crick, Chris Goldspink, Rebecca Ferguson, Nelson Gonzalez and I (online!) contributed to the programme. Ruth and Rebecca were both blogging, so you can get their in-situ reflections, and I’m sure there’ll be more to follow as we unpack the many ideas. Following a successful Dispositional Learning Analytics workshop, on which we’ve had very positive feedback, awareness should grow of Learner Dispositions (or Mindset as Dweck calls it), Teacher Dispositions, the potential of a multi-level Complex Systems approach to educational system design, and from Nelson’s work at Declara, the emerging potential of applying machine learning techniques to such datasets. Ruth and Rebecca[…]

LearningEmergence team at Stanford July 1-5

The LearningEmergence team are prepping for the upcoming Learning Analytics Summer Institute, Stanford University (July 1-5). We’ll be running one of the workshops, exploring with colleagues from Stanford and many other places the emerging topic of Dispositional Learning Analytics. Speaker lineup, abstracts, discussion papers and resources… Tune into the LASI plenaries via the online webcasts/replays, and connect with the global network of LASI-Locals running in parallel!

Opening: Dispositional Learning Analytics

In a great example of the LearningEmergence convergence of ideas, we are developing an approach to modelling learning dispositions, based on the educational research underpinning the ELLI instrument for Learning Power: Buckingham Shum, S. and Deakin Crick, R., Learning Dispositions and Transferable Competencies: Pedagogy, Modelling and Learning Analytics. Proc. 2nd International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge (Vancouver, 29 Apr-2 May, 2012). ACM: New York. pp.92-101. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2330601.2330629 Eprint: http://oro.open.ac.uk/32823. See also our earlier blog post and the LAK12 replay The most recent work on this, which picks up the challenge identified at the end of the above paper, is the question of whether it is possible to generate an ELLI profile automatically from learners’ incidental data traces.
