New ambitious partnership project is about to start

At first, it was just a matchmaking workshop bringing together partners from Universität Hamburg, Macquarie University in Sydney and Fudan University in Shanghai for joint research projects. My team in Hamburg had some advantage here because I have been working with Matt Bower at Macquarie for a long time. We were surprised and all the more pleased that Xuanjing Huang also wanted to join our team. Now, after exchanging ideas, presenting methods and techniques and developing a project plan at a second workshop, our goals have become even more ambitious.

Our aim of cooperation is to develop procedures for automated recognition and analysis of teaching and learning behaviour in the classroom, maybe also of lesson quality. Our experiences match perfectly: My team in Hamburg has several years of experience in video analysis of lessons and developing coding schemes. Our colleagues at Fudan have ongoing projects addressing the automated analysis of teaching and learning behaviour and Macquarie University is specialised in technology-based learning and instruction.

Writing research proposals, we have a great deal of work ahead of us!

Seminar on learners’ motivations and video observations at University of Waikato

Professor Jens Siemon, in conjunction with the Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research, will visit the University of Waikato on 01 October 2015 to speak on learners’ motivations and the challenges of doing video observations in collaborative, game-based learning.

Professor Siemon’s will speak about a current study he is undertaking with Antonia Scholkmann and Kay-Dennis Boom entitled ‘Time on Task’ in Collaborative Learning – Influence of Learning Goal Motivation and Group Composition. This research focuses on the connection between (a) a student’s individual learning goal motivation and (b) the learning partner’s learning goal motivation and the effective learning time spent on a specific task in a collaborative learning arrangement.

Data video observations of 56 students was used from three classes in the field of business education. All students worked on an assigned computer assisted game-based learning task in dyads for approximately eight hours. Subjects were videotaped for the whole time with three different cameras; additionally, each student wore a personalized audiotape recorder (Knigge, Duarte, Nordstrand, Siemon, & Stolp, 2013). All video material was analyzed in a time-sampling procedure using ten second intervals by trained raters using a coding scheme of learning time being on topic’ vs. ‚off topic’.

Learning goal motivation was surveyed with the SELLMO-scales (Spinath, Stiensmeier-Pelster, Schöne, & Dickhäuser, 2002). Data analysis is currently done using hierarchical regression analyses. First results confirm the hypothesis that both learning partners’ goal motivations add to the explained variance when it comes to time spent on the learning task, which is considered the dependent variable in the model.
