November 2015

The Sciences and Technologies of Learning (STL) Research Fest was held in the Charles Perkins Centre Hub on Thurs Nov 5th 2015. Posters and abstracts from the day are available online in a Dropbox folder at http://bit.ly/STLFest15files.

Sciences and Technologies of Learning Research Fest 2015

Dr David Ashe and Melinda J Lewis were very happy to receive the people’s choice award for their poster:

Context in Flux: An invitation to join a think‐aloud installation at Research Fest.

The dynamic and multi-modal poster was an opportunity to explore and expand the research poster genre to one of installation, evoking participation and interaction.

Melinda and David performed a think-aloud about their ideas on why or why not common understandings of context are relevant in their research. Visitors to the poster joined in, voicing their thoughts on context both verbally and in text that they shared directly onto the poster.

It is not possible to illustrate the dynamic modality of the poster in a static image; however, the image above provides a small insight into the experience of visitors to the Research fest. The textual information on the poster scrolled, images changed and additional text could be entered in real-time. Wireless headphones were also supplied for visitors to listen to audio information.

If you would like further information about this dynamic and interactive poster, please contact David and Melinda.

Thank you to our poster judges; Sonya Corcoran and Julie King. Posters will be made available online in the next week. Details will be posted here, on our website, and to fest registrants.

Congratulations to Dr Patrica Thibaut Paez, who has been awarded a position by the National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT) through its FONDECYT program's Postdoctoral Contest 2016.

These positions are granted by the National Fund for Scientific and Technological Research (FONDECYT), which was created as an instrument to promote scientific and technological development in Chile. FONDECYT fosters the initiative of individuals and research groups by funding scientific and technological research projects in all fields of knowledge. Resources are allocated through annual public competitions and projects are selected on the basis of their intrinsic quality and the merits of applicants without, distinction of fields, institutional affiliation or gender. The aim of this competition is to stimulate productivity and future scientific leadership of young researchers who hold a Doctorate degree.

Patricia is a researcher at the Centre for Research on Computer Supported Learning and Cognition (CoCo) at the University of Sydney. She also completed her PhD at the Centre. Her research focuses on learning, literacy, and mobile technologies across formal and informal spaces.

On November 5, the STL Research Fest will bring together the wider community of researchers and practitioners in the sciences and technologies of learning to exchange ideas and form new collaborations.
