30th May

UniSA’s Teaching Innovation Unit Presents the Teaching & Learning Breakfast Series 2019

PRESENTER: Professor Roger Azevedo, Ph.D. (University of Central Florida)

TOPIC: Measuring and analyzing self-regulatory processes using multimodal multichannel data 

DATE: Thursday 30th May 2019

TIME: 8:00 – 9:00am (ACST)

LOCATION: Jeffrey Smart Building JS3.13A (City West Campus & via Virtual Classroom)

A light breakfast will be served – please bring a cup/mug if you are able


DETAILS: Learning involves the real-time deployment of cognitive, affective, metacognitive, and motivational (CAMM) processes. Traditional methods of measuring self-regulatory processes (e.g., self-reports) severely limit our understanding of the temporal nature and role of these processes during learning, problem solving, etc. Interdisciplinary researchers have recently used advanced learning technologies (e.g., intelligent tutoring systems, serious games, simulations, virtual reality) to measure (i.e., detect, track, model) and foster self-regulatory processes during learning and problem solving. Despite the emergence of interdisciplinary research, much work is still needed given the various theoretical models and assumptions, methodological approaches (e.g., log-files, eye-tracking), data types (e.g., verbal data, physiological data), analytical methods, etc. In this presentation, I will present an interdisciplinary data fusion approach to measuring and fostering self-regulated learning with advanced learning technologies. More specifically, I will focus on: (1) presenting major theoretical and methodological challenges for a data fusion approach that focus on the real-time detection, tracking, and modeling of CAMM processes; (2) presenting recent multimodal multichannel data used to detect, track, and model CAMM processes while learning with advanced learning technologies; and, (3) outlining an interdisciplinary research agenda that has the potential to significantly enhance advanced learning technologies’ ability to provide real-time, intelligent support of learners’ CAMM processes.

Roger, Azevedo – Biography

Dr. Azevedo is a Professor in the Department of Learning Sciences and Educational Research at the University of Central Florida. He is also an affiliated faculty in the Department of Computer Science and in the College of Medicine’s Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Central Florida and the lead scientist for the Learning Sciences Faculty Cluster Initiative. His main research area includes examining the role of cognitive, metacognitive, affective, and motivational self-regulatory processes during learning with advanced learning technologies (e.g., intelligent tutoring systems, hypermedia, multimedia, simulations, serious games, immersive virtual learning environments).

8th November

SAVE THE DATE – The UniSA Teaching and Learning Symposium is on again in 2019

Friday 8th November 2019 – Call for Papers coming soon

Presented by the Teaching Innovation Unit, the symposium is a chance for educators from across the university to come together for a one-day conversation about teaching and learning. The aim is to provide an opportunity for UniSA’s teachers to present on our practices and make visible all the great work we are doing.
