New Modes of Learning and Assessment
CITE & SoL-SRT Joint Seminar: Wearable Devices in the Science of Learning

8 Dec 2016
2:15pm - 3:15pm
Room 101, 1/F., Runme Shaw Bldg., HKU
Mrs. Stephanie MacMahon, PhD candidate, School of Education, The University of Queensland
wearable devices, science of learning, measuring learning environment

Chair by: Prof. Nancy Law, Professor, Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong

The primary goal of the SLRC is to have a positive impact on learning outcomes for all learners, using a transdisciplinary approach to investigate authentic questions surrounding teaching and learning. Collaborating across the disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive psychology and education brings with it both challenges and opportunities. One of the greatest challenges is associated with translating research findings from a laboratory setting into the classroom, given the philosophical, ontological and methodological differences across the disciplines. New technologies, and new ways of using existing technologies from other fields, is providing innovative solutions to some of these challenges, enabling researchers to capture real-time data in authentic learning and teaching environments that have direct correlations to what we know from neuroscience and psychology about the brain and learning. This presentation will share with you some of the exciting collaborations being conducted within the SLRC that are using wearable and imaging technologies to provide greater insight into the teaching and learning process, particularly into those less tangible but fundamental aspects of learning and teaching surrounding social and emotional states.

About the speaker(s):

Stephanie MacMahon is a PhD candidate and a casual academic with the School of Education at The University of Queensland, and a Translation Officer with the Science of Learning Research Centre, based also at The University of Queensland. Her research explores the concept of social synchrony, or shared states, in the classroom, and stems from her 20 years’ experience in Arts education and leadership. As a Translation Officer, Stephanie works with researchers within the SLRC and educators to consider practical applications of research findings to real-world teaching and learning contexts, developing and delivering a range of Professional Learning and pre-service programs for teachers. Stephanie has been part of a team that has developed and delivered a new ‘Foundations of the Science of Learning’ Masters course in 2016, and also coordinates a Masters course on At-Risk Youth.
