Timeline

2016 – 2019

Overview

The general goal of the pilot is to prototype and test a system that allows more dynamic feedback exchange between teachers and students. We also intend to serve programme leaders by building a dashboard to monitor on how well their students learn on programme courses.

We are building a system that aims for:

  • instant benefits for it’s users through more visible feedback response from teachers
  • deeper learning through self assessment, linking between learned topics and emotional diary

We have designed:

  • an interface for students
  • data collection automations
  • an interface for teachers

In Autumn 2017 we were concentrating on programme leader’s dashboard and data analysis of small scale pilots for further development. In 2018 we have focused on defining the concept and preparing and starting a large scale full degree programme pilot with A/B-testing.

Platforms and tools

MyCourses, Mindjet Mindmanager, LA-mindmap -algorithm, Power BI, Power BI Report Server.

Pedagogical methods

Curricular concept maps are used as a templates for students’ self-assessment on their learning. In this process the templates become structured learning diaries. By sharing group level data for teachers and other students, this data can be used as feedback data contributing towards adaptive teaching and dynamic feedback culture.
