The 1st Learning Analytics Summer Camp

On July 31 Lea’s Box organized the 1st Learning Analytics Summer Camp in Prague (CZ). The main goal of this summer camp was to bring together all the European players in the field of learning analytics and educational data mining, to find synergies and common goals and to see how we can work together to make a meaningful difference in the educational landscape with our efforts and results. Some projects joined us on site, others called in and joint the summer camp via video conference. For the WATCHME this was a great opportunity to discuss the challenges we face concerning the implementation of learning analytics and in bridging the gap between research, technology development and practice. We met with other European-funded projects, like the LACE project and of course the hosts of this event from Lea’s box, our sister project. Suzanne Schut (Maastricht University) presented the WATCHME project and gave an overview of the project’s aims, methods and results following the first year, as did the other projects. Not only did we exchange our knowledge and solutions, we also tried to clarify key questions, align common strengths and formulate joint solutions towards making learning analytics and data mining outcomes an everyday part of education. To share these insights and thoughts, but also the (future) lessons learned from our projects, we started working on a joint publication. This will be the next step and we’re looking forward to an inspiring and fruitful collaboration! Go here for more detail on the event, as well as some pictures and links to the presentations. On July 31 our colleague Suzanne Schut joined the 1st Learning Analytics Summer Camp in Prague (CZ) organized by our sister project Lea’s Box. This event

Dissertation “Competency-oriented veterinary study programme”

[gview file="http://www.project-watchme.eu/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/HaroldBok_Competency-based-Veterinary-Education_2014.pdf"] The Master’s programme at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine aims to prepare students as optimally as possible for their future profession. The education provided during this phase is mainly composed of clinical postgraduate medical training. This training is organised in a clinical setting where students can gradually perform tasks relevant to the profession under the supervision of lecturers. Doctoral Candidate Harold Bok has studied the relationship between teaching and evaluating students in this clinical workplace. More insight into this relationship may contribute to the optimisation of veterinary education. In order to ensure a smooth transition from the veterinary study programme and professional practice, it is vital that the faculty has a better understanding of the skills and knowledge required of recent veterinary graduates at the moment they start their professional practice. Bok’s research has resulted in a competency profile for the veterinary professional. The competency domains described in this profile will in turn serve as the guiding principles for the Veterinary Medicine Master’s programme. In a competency-oriented study programme, it is vital that the student’s learning ability  receives the optimal support. Moreover, sufficient relevant information must be collected in order to come to a reliable and valid assessment of the student’s competency development. Bok has studied the implementation of a theoretical educational model that aims to serve both goals. In such a programme, the quality of the feedback given and received plays a crucial role. The study showed that a number of aspects can influence the quality of this feedback, and these aspects are described in greater detail in the various studies.
