The "Research Methods and Practices in the Sciences and Technologies of Learning" is a monthly workshop, which is organized in independent thematic sessions, with a focus on ‘hands on’ activities and roundtable discussions. The workshops are normally held on the first Wednesday of each month. Sessions invite researchers to reflect on issues related to methods and practices in the various phases of knowledge production: from planning and conducting data collection, to strategies to organize, analyse and visualize data; from ways of engaging in research collaboration, to sharing research outputs, writing, publishing and other forms of research dissemination in academia.

On the 2nd of April, Roberto Martinez-Maldonado will talk about the methods he used in his PhD research on the topic of designing support tools for teachers and analysing small group face-to-face collaboration; and he will introduce some qualitative and quantitative techniques used in Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) and Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

Upcoming workshops this year will include:
• Discourse Analysis :: May 7
• Academic Writing :: June 4
• Online Ethnography :: September 3

When: 11.00am - 12.00pm
Where: Education Building (A35) Room 236 (CoCo Lab)
Places are limited, to RSVP please email lucila.carvalho@sydney.edu.au

Join us on March 26 for a CoCo Seminar by Prof. Michael Jacobson titled Glimpses of Future Learning for Today’s Australian Students”

In this talk, I provide an overview of three years of classroom-based research in two different ARC funded projects in which students used custom developed 3D virtual worlds and 2D models to learn difficult scientific knowledge about biological and climate systems as well as scientific inquiry skills. We not only found statistically significant learning gains related to inquiry skills and content knowledge but also students who were quite motivated and engaged. Further, teachers we worked with were enthusiastic about the new approaches to teaching we developed and positive about the learning experiences of their students. The key lessons of this research have, I believe, implications beyond specific science content in the Australian Curriculum, such potential applications to realise broader Australian and international educational goals related to learning of advanced 21st century knowledge, practices, and skills.

When: 11.00am - 12.30pm (arrive at 10.45 for refreshments)
Where: Education Building (A35) Room 230

Professor Riemann’s research activities involve the analysis of individual and group problem solving/learning processes and possible support by means of ICT, and analysis of the use of mobile IT in informal learning settings.
Professor Riemann currently spends his time journeying between the USYD Faculty of Education as senior researcher in the CoCo Research Centre, and Europe as Chief Scientific Coordinator of Next-Tell, educational technology research project funded by the European Commission.
He has also worked as reviewer for the IT R&D programs of the European Commission, is founder of a German-based elearning consulting company and was a founding co-director the CoCo research centre.
