[publication] PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17 #tugraz #research

It’s a great pleasure that our research about „PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17“ got published in the International Journal of Online and Biomedical Engineering (iJOE).

Abstract:

This work describes the research activities performed in the field of engineering education at Austrian Federal Colleges of Engineering (HTL) in collaboration with both Graz and Vienna Universities of Technology. To support the collaboration process in engineering education, a Product Data Management (PDM) system was introduced to several Austrian HTLs. In the academic year 2016/17, a field study was begun and that will continue in 2017/18 to determine how to enhance collaboration between students by using this kind of software and methods. This paper, which is continuing a paper presented at ICL2017 in Budapest presents the first results, obtained in the academic year 2016/17 of the survey and the impression of the lecturers regarding the level of collaboration within students’ design projects.

[publication] Learning Analytics – eine Einführung #LearningAnalytics #TUGraz

Ich durfte in der Zeitschrift „Bildung und Beruf“ eine kurze Einführung zu Learning Analytics geben – hier der Beitrag.

Zusammenfassung:

Learning Analytics ist ein sehr junges Forschungsgebiet aus dem Bereich der Bildungsinformatik und versucht durch das Sammeln und Gegenüberstellen von Daten Unterstützung im Lernprozess zu geben. Dieser Beitrag gibt eine Einführung und stellt die wesentlichen Aspekte, kritischen Punkte, Ziele und Methoden vor. Weiters soll dabei ein Bezug zur berufsbildenden Schulpraxis geschaffen werden.

[publication] Learning Analytics Challenges to Overcome in Higher Education Institutions #LearningAnalytics #tugraz #research

Our chapter on „Learning Analytics Challenges to Overcome in Higher Education Institutions“ got published in the book „Utilizing Learning Analytics to Support Study Success

Abstract:

While a large number of scientific publications explain the development of prototypes or the implementation of case studies in detail, descriptions of the challenges and proper solutions when implementing learning analytics initiatives are rare. In this chapter, we provide a practical tool that can be used to identify risks and challenges that arise when implementing learning analytics (LA) initiatives and discuss how to approach these to find acceptable solutions. In this way, implementers are given the opportunity to handle challenges early on and avoid being surprised at a critical moment in the project, which will save time, resources, and effort. We are aware that all aspects needed to successfully carry out learning analytics initiatives are co-dependent. Nonetheless, we identified and categorized the criteria necessary for implementing successful learning analytics initiatives. We conclude this chapter with an overview of the challenges faced and possible approaches that can be taken to facilitate the successful implementation of learning analytics.

[publication] Open Educational Resources – eine Notwendigkeit für die digital gestützte Hochschullehre #fnma #publication #OER

Zusammen mit Sandra Schön hab ich einen weiteren Beitrag zu Open Educational Resources geschrieben und zwar die Zusammenfassung des Vortrages im Rahmen der 1. Online-Tagung der VPH 2018.

Kurzfassung:

In diesem Kurzbeitrag wird dargestellt, warum freie Bildungsressourcen für die Hochschule von morgen eine Notwendigkeit darstellen. Nach einer Begriffsdefinition werden Argumente für die Stärkung von OER vorgestellt. Darüberhinaus kann gezeigt werden, dass bereits auf viele existierende Ressourcen zugegriffen werden kann bzw. wie diese selbst genutzt werden können.

[publication] Von der Muse geküsst – Coding mit dem Calliope Mini #MakerEducation #tugraz

Zusammen mit Maria Grandl haben wir einen Kurzbeitrag zu unseren Arbeiten rund um den Calliope Mini geschrieben „Von der Muse geküsst – Coding mit dem Calliope Mini“ für das neueste OCG-Journal.

Einleitung:

Im vorläufigen Lehrplan für die verbindliche Übung Digitale Grundbildung in der Sekundarstufe 1 wird das Kompetenzfeld Computational Thinking durch 3 Kompetenzbereiche genauer erläutert: Demnach sollen die Schüler/innen „mit Algorithmen arbeiten“, „einfache Programme erstellen“ und „unterschiedliche Programmiersprachen kreativ nutzen“ können. (BMB, 2017) Der Calliope mini stellt in diesem Zusammenhang ein ideales Spiel- und Lernwerkzeug dar. Er inspiriert zur Umsetzung kreativer Programme und Projekte, welche nicht nur die Informatik-Ecke bedienen, sondern auch fächerverbindende und fächerübergreifende Aspekte beinhalten.

[publication] Introducing Augmented Reality and Internet of Things at Austrian Secondary Colleges of Engineering #AR #VR #research

Our article for this year ICL 2018 conference about „Introducing Augmented Reality and Internet of Things at Austrian Secondary Colleges of Engineering“ got published.
Abstract:

In Austria technical education is taught at federal secondary colleges of engineering (HTL) at a quite high level of ISCED 5. Despite mechanical engineering , design with industrial standard 3D programs being state of the art in industry and education, technologies using Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality (AR) are still at an early stage. This publication describes the introduction of the IoT platform Thingworx at Austrian HTL for mechanical engineering, with focus on AR and IoT from an educational perspective as well as the training aspects from the platform developers‘ perspective. In addition, an assessment using a system usability scale (SUS) test among students and teachers has been undertaken to obtain knowledge of how students and teachers see the usability of the IoT and AR platform Thingworx. The assessment results are presented in this paper.
