Technologies for Learning and Development Research Seminar, January 31, 2021

  • by

You are warmly invited to our monthly research seminar on Monday, December 31, 13:15 Helsinki time (UCT+2)

Tentative schedule

13:15 – 13:45, Rhythm Bathia, From big data to person-based learning analytics: exploring the opportunities and challenges

In variable centered analysis, the focus is on the “average” learning pattern that ignores the unobserved heterogeneity between learners which makes it inadequate, whereas person-based methods account for heterogeneity and individual differences. Through this work, our aim is to identify sub-groups of people based on a set of variables such as abilities, motivation, preferences, etc, and understand inter-individual differences. Instead of bringing everyone in the same pool.

13:45 – 14:15, Satu Järvinen, Using digital micro certificates in the recognition and validation of skills of the informal sector in Africa
