New researchers and visiting scholars at the Centre for Research in Digital Education
A collaboration with the Centre for Research in Learning and Innovation at the University of Sydney, developing and researching innovative pedagogical and methodological approaches to designing and assessing student learning in digital spaces.
Members of the Centre have accepted a number of national and international speaking invitations for conferences and events in recent months - in destinations as far-flung as Stanford, Singapore, Sydney and Guadalajara. Closer to home we'll be speaking in Malta, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Spain and Croatia.
New features have been added to the LARC interface, including sentiment analysis and a summary of the data
The Centre for Research in Digital Education at Edinburgh is hosting two major international conferences this April.
We are looking for a Research Associate to work with a multi-disciplinary team on a learning analytics policy and strategy framework for higher education.
Professor Shane Dawson and Professor George Siemens have been appointed as honorary professors and Dr. Ryan Baker as an honorary fellow with the Moray House School of Education. The pioneers in the field of learning analytics, Baker, Dawson, and Siemens bring world-class research expertise, extensive social networks, and commitment to innovation and promotion of digital education.
Paper submissions are invited for a special issue on Learning Analytics for the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies.
The Digital Education Centre formally launched on 26th November at a party in the Scottish Storytelling Centre on the High Street, Edinburgh.
We had an excellent and well-attended night, and it was great to have so many colleagues, students and friends come and share the celebration.
We celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the MSc in Digital Education at the same time, and with graduation happening the following day, were able to welcome many of our graduands too.
