Event 1

Let’s try SCROLL (ubiquitous learning log system) for seamless learning analytics

Date, Time, and Venue:

  • MEETING ROOM 1, NOVEMBER 30 (SUNDAY), 13:30-17:00
  • MEETING ROOM 1, DECEMBER 4 (THURSDAY), 10:20-11:20

Event Organizers:

  • Hiroaki OGATA, Kyushu University, Japan
  • Kousuke MOURI, Kyushu University, Japan
  • Songran LIU, Tokushima University, Japan
  • Noriko UOSAKI, Osaka University, Japan

In this event, we will demonstrate a ubiquitous learning log system called SCROLL (System for Capturing and Reminding of Learning Log). Ubiquitous Learning Log (ULL) is defined as a digital record of what learners have learned in the daily life using ubiquitous technologies. It allows learners to log their learning experiences with photos, audios, videos, location, and sensor data, and to share and to reuse ULL with others. Also the organizers will discuss how we can use SCROLL in the participants’ courses for seamless and flipped learning, collaborative learning, and learning analytics. So the participants should bring their own notebook PC, smartphones, or tablets to try the SCROLL system.

Event 2

Active Learning Practicum for Trust Building in Team-Based Learning with Empathy

Date, Time, and Venue: CONFERENCE ROOM 3, DECEMBER 1 (MONDAY), 13:30-17:00

Event Organizers:

  • Tosh YAMAMOTO, Kanasai University, Japan
  • Maki OKUNUKI, Kansai University, Kobe Shinwa Women’s University, Japan
  • Chiaki IWASAKI
  • Tagami MASANORI

This event is to make participants submerged into the first-hand win-win approach for the advanced communication for trust building as well as consensus building in terms of empathy in the team-based learning (henceforth, TBL), which is based on the concept of social constructivism with heads-on and hands-on practices. In the team based learning, it is usually disregarded or overlooked that the essence of TBL is fundamentally initiated from the trust building. Thus, the TBL would end up with failure.
This practicum will draw the audience to the importance of the trust building that will lead to the success of the consensus building. Throughout the course, thinking tools (Smartphone APPs) for visualization will be introduced to activate team discussion.
The target audience for this event is undergraduate students through the junior faculty members, who are interested in the learning effectiveness in TBL.
