How large manufacturing firms understand the impact of digitization: ALearning Perspective

Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences , Maui, Hawaii, 2020

Konferenz
Digitization is currently one of the major factors changing society and the business world. Most research focused on the technical issues of this change, but also employees and especially the way how they learn changes dramatically. In this paper, we are interested in exploring the perspectives of decision makers in huge manufacturing companies on current challenges in organizing learning and knowledge distribution in digitized manufacturing environments. Moreover, weinvestigated the change process and challenges of implementing new knowledge and learning processes.To this purpose, we have conducted 24 interviews with senior representatives of large manufacturing companies from Austria, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Our exploratory study shows that decision makers perceive significant changes in work practice of manufacturing due to digitization and they currently plan changes in organizational training and knowledge distribution processes in response. Due to the lack of best practices, companies focus verymuch on technological advancements. The delivery of knowledge just-in-time directly into work practice is afavorite approach. Overall, digital learning services are growing and new requirements regarding compliance,quality management and organisational culture arise.

Concept and Development of an Information Literacy Curriculum Widget

Conference on Learning Information Literacy , Deutschland, 2019

Konferenz
Information literacy, the access to knowledge and use of it are becoming a precondition for individuals to actively take part in social,economic, cultural and political life. Information literacy must be considered as a fundamental competency like the ability to read, write and calculate. Therefore, we are working on automatic learning guidance with respect to three modules of the information literacy curriculum developed by the EU (DigComp 2.1 Framework). In prior work, we havelaid out the essential research questions from a technical side. In this work, we follow-up by specifying the concept to micro learning, and micro learning content units. This means, that the overall intervention that we design is concretized to: The widget is initialized by assessing the learners competence with the help of a knowledge test. This is the basis for recommending suitable micro learning content, adapted to the identifi ed competence level. After the learner has read/worked through the content, the widget asks a reflective question to the learner. The goal of the reflective question is to deepen the learning. In this paper we present the concept of the widget and its integration in a search platform.

"Mirror, mirror on my search..." Data-driven Reflection and Experimentation with Search Behaviour

Proceedings of the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning: Transforming Learning wiht MEaningful Technologies, Springer International Publishing, Delft, 2019

Konferenz
Searching on the web is a key activity for working and learning purposes. In this work, we aimed to motivate users to reflect on their search behaviour, and to experiment with different search functionalities. We implemented a widget that logs user interactions within a search platform, mirrors back search behaviours to users, and prompts users to reflect about it. We carried out two studies to evaluate the impact of such widget on search behaviour: in Study 1 (N = 76), participants received screenshots of the widget including reflection prompts while in Study 2 (N = 15), a maximum of 10 search tasks were conducted by participants over a period of two weeks on a search platform that contained the widget. Study 1 shows that reflection prompts induce meaningful insights about search behaviour. Study 2 suggests that, when using a novel search platform for the first time, those participants who had the widget prioritised search behaviours over time. The incorporation of the widget into the search platform after users had become familiar with it, however, was not observed to impact search behaviour. While the potential to support un-learning of routines could not be shown, the two studies suggest the widget’s usability, perceived usefulness, potential to induce reflection and potential to impact search behaviour.

Collaborating in a Research and Development Project: Knowledge Protection Practices applied in a Co-opetitive Setting

10th Conference Professional Knowledge Management, Data-Driven Knowledge Management workshop, proWM’19, Potsdam, DE, 2019

Konferenz
Organisations participate in collaborative projects that include competitors for a number of strategic reasons, even whilst knowing that this requires them to consider both knowledge sharing and knowledge protection throughout collaboration. In this paper, we investigated which knowledge protection practices representatives of organizations employ in a collaborative research and innovation project that can be characterized as a co-opetitive setting. We conducted a series of 30 interviews and report the following seven practices in structured form: restrictive partner selection in operative project tasks, communication through a gatekeeper, to limit access to a central platform, to hide details of machine data dumps, to have data not leave a factory for analysis, a generic model enabling to hide usage parameters, and to apply legal measures. When connecting each practice to a priori literature, we find three practices focussing on collaborative data analytics tasks had not yet been covered so far.

Challenges in Developing Automatic Learning Guidance in Relation to an Information Literacy Curriculum

CEUR Workshop Proceedings, Angela Fessl, Stefan Thalmann, Mathieu d'Aquin, Peter Holtz, Stefan Dietze , 2018

Konferenz
Becoming a data-savvy professional requires skills and competencesin information literacy, communication and collaboration, and content creationin digital environments. In this paper, we present a concept for automatic learningguidance in relation to an information literacy curriculum. The learning guidanceconcept has three components: Firstly, an open learner model in terms of an informationliteracy curriculum is created. Based on the data collected in the learnermodel, learning analytics is used in combination with a corresponding visualizationto present the current learning status of the learner. Secondly, reflectionprompts in form of sentence starters or reflective questions adaptive to the learnermodel aim to guide learning. Thirdly, learning resources are suggested that arestructured along learning goals to motivate learners to progress. The main contributionof this paper is to discuss what we see as main research challenges withrespect to existing literature on open learner modeling, learning analytics, recommendersystems for learning, and learning guidance.

Digging for Gold: Motivating Users to Explore Alternative Search Interfaces

Proceedings of the 13th European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (ECTEL), Pammer-Schindler, Viktoria, Perez-Sanagustin, Mar, Drachsler, Hendrik, and Elferink, Raymond, and Scheffel, Maren, Springer International Publishing, 2018

Konferenz
In this demonstration paper, we describe a prototype that visualizes usage of different search interfaces on a single search platform with the goal to motivate users to explore alternative search interfaces. The underlying rationale is, that by now the one-line-input to search engines is so standard, that we can assume users’ search behavior to be operationalized. This means, that users may be reluctant to explore alternatives even though these may be suited better to their context of use / search task.

Analytics for Everyday Learning from two Perspectives: Knowledge Workers and Teachers.

CEUR Workshop Proceedings, Angela Fessl, Stefan Thalmann, Mathieu d'Aquin, Peter Holtz, Stefan Dietze, 2018

Konferenz
Learning analytics deals with tools and methods for analyzing anddetecting patterns in order to support learners while learning in formal as wellas informal learning settings. In this work, we present the results of two focusgroups in which the effects of a learning resource recommender system and adashboard based on analytics for everyday learning were discussed from twoperspectives: (1) knowledge workers as self-regulated everyday learners (i.e.,informal learning) and (2) teachers who serve as instructors for learners (i.e.,formal learning). Our findings show that the advantages of analytics for everydaylearning are three-fold: (1) it can enhance the motivation to learn, (2) it canmake learning easier and broadens the scope of learning, and (3) it helps to organizeand to systematize everyday learning.

Transfer of Theoretical Knowledge into Work Practice: A Reflective Quiz for Stroke Nurses.

Knowledge Management in Digital Change, North, K; Maier, R.; Haas. O;, Springer, Cham, 2018

Buch
Managing knowledge in periods of digital change requires not only changes in learning processes but also in knowledge transfer. For this knowledge transfer, we see reflective learning as an important strategy to keep the vast body of theoretical knowledge fresh and up-to-date, and to transfer theoretical knowledge to practical experience. In this work, we present a study situated in a qualification program for stroke nurses in Germany. In the seven-week study, 21 stroke nurses used a quiz on medical knowledge as an additional learning instrument. The quiz contained typical quiz questions (“content questions”) as well as reflective questions that aimed at stimulating nurses to reflect on the practical relevance of the learned knowledge. We particularly looked at how reflective questions can support the transfer of theoretical knowledge into practice. The results show that by playful learning and presenting reflective questions at the right time, participants reflected and related theoretical knowledge to practical experience.

Finding traces of self-regulated learning in activity streams

ACM Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge, LAK , ACM, ACM, 2018

Konferenz
This paper aims to identify self-regulation strategies from students' interactions with the learning management system (LMS). We used learning analytics techniques to identify metacognitive and cognitive strategies in the data. We define three research questions that guide our studies analyzing i) self-assessments of motivation and self regulation strategies using standard methods to draw a baseline, ii) interactions with the LMS to find traces of self regulation in observable indicators, and iii) self regulation behaviours over the course duration. The results show that the observable indicators can better explain self-regulatory behaviour and its influence in performance than preliminary subjective assessments.

AFEL - Analytics for Everyday Learning

Proceedings of the International Projects Track co-located with the 27th International World Wide Web Conference, ACM, Lyon, France, 2018

Konferenz
The goal of AFEL is to develop, pilot and evaluate methods and applications, which advance informal/collective learning as it surfaces implicitly in online social environments. The project is following a multi-disciplinary, industry-driven approach to the analysis and understanding of learner data in order to personalize, accelerate and improve informal learning processes. Learning Analytics and Educational Data Mining traditionally relate to the analysis and exploration of data coming from learning environments, especially to understand learners' behaviours. However, studies have for a long time demonstrated that learning activities happen outside of formal educational platforms, also. This includes informal and collective learning usually associated, as a side effect, with other (social) environments and activities. Relying on real data from a commercially available platform, the aim of AFEL is to provide and validate the technological grounding and tools for exploiting learning analytics on such learning activities. This will be achieved in relation to cognitive models of learning and collaboration, which are necessary to the understanding of loosely defined learning processes in online social environments. Applying the skills available in the consortium to a concrete set of live, industrial online social environments, AFEL will tackle the main challenges of informal learning analytics through 1) developing the tools and techniques necessary to capture information about learning activities from (not necessarily educational) online social environments; 2) creating methods for the analysis of such informal learning data, based on combining feature engineering and visual analytics with cognitive models of learning and collaboration; and 3) demonstrating the potential of the approach in improving the understanding of informal learning, and the way it is better supported; 4) evaluate all the former items in real world large scale applications and platforms.

Improving Search Strategies of Auditors – A Focus Group on Reflection Interventions

ARTEL Workshop at EC-TEL 2017, Tallin, Estland, 2017

Konferenz
Financial auditors routinely search internal as well as public knowledge bases as part of the auditing process. Efficient search strategies are crucial for knowledge workers in general and for auditors in particular. Modern search technology quickly evolves; and features beyond keyword search like fac-etted search or visual overview of knowledge bases like graph visualisations emerge. It is therefore desirable for auditors to learn about new innovations and to explore and experiment with such technologies. In this paper, we present a reflection intervention concept that intends to nudge auditors to reflect on their search behaviour and to trigger informal learning in terms of by trying out new or less frequently used search features. The reflection intervention concept has been tested in a focus group with six auditors using a mockup. Foremost, the discussion centred on the timing of reflection interventions and how to raise mo-tivation to achieve a change in search behaviour.

In-app Reflection Guidance: Lessons Learned across Four Field Trials at the Workplace

IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, IEEE, 2017

Journal
This paper presents a concept for in-app reflection guidance and its evaluation in four work-related field trials. By synthesizing across four field trials, we can show that computer-based reflection guidance can function in the workplace, in the sense of being accepted as technology, being perceived as useful and leading to reflective learning. This is encouraging for all endeavours aiming to transfer existing knowledge on reflection supportive technology from educational settings to the workplace. However,reflective learning in our studies was mostly visible to limited depth in textual entries made in the applications themselves; and proactive reflection guidance technology like prompts were often found to be disruptive. We offer these two issues as highly relevant questions for future research.

Introducing Mood Self-Tracking at Work: Empirical Insights from Call Centers

ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction (TOCHI), ACM New York, NY, USA , 2017

Journal
The benefits of self-tracking have been thoroughly investigated in private areas of life, like health or sustainable living, but less attention has been given to the impact and benefits of self-tracking in work-related settings. Through two field studies, we introduced and evaluated a mood self-tracking application in two call centers to investigate the role of mood self-tracking at work, as well as its impact on individuals and teams. Our studies indicate that mood self-tracking is accepted and can improve performance if the application is well integrated into the work processes and matches the management style. The results show that (i) capturing moods and explicitly relating them to work tasks facilitated reflection, (ii) mood self-tracking increased emotional awareness and this improved cohesion within teams, and (iii) proactive reactions by managers to trends and changes in team members’ mood were key for acceptance of reflection and correlated with measured improvements in work performance. These findings help to better understand the role and potential of self-tracking in work settings and further provide insights that guide future researchers and practitioners to design and introduce these tools in a workplace setting.

Designing Generic Visualisations for Activity Log Data

Workshop on Awareness and Reflection in Technology Enhanced Learning (ARTEL16), CEUR-WS, Lyon, 2016

Konferenz
Especially in lifelong or professional learning, the picture of a continuous learning analytics process emerges. In this proces s, het- erogeneous and changing data source applications provide data relevant to learning, at the same time as questions of learners to data cha nge. This reality challenges designers of analytics tools, as it req uires ana- lytics tools to deal with data and analytics tasks that are unk nown at application design time. In this paper, we describe a generic vi sualiza- tion tool that addresses these challenges by enabling the vis ualization of any activity log data. Furthermore, we evaluate how well parti cipants can answer questions about underlying data given such generic versus custom visualizations. Study participants performed better in 5 out of 10 tasks with the generic visualization tool, worse in 1 out of 1 0 tasks, and without significant difference when compared to the visuali zations within the data-source applications in the remaining 4 of 10 ta sks. The experiment clearly showcases that overall, generic, standalon e visualiza- tion tools have the potential to support analytical tasks suffi ciently well

In-App Reflection Guidance for Workplace Learning

Proceedings of the 10th European Conference on Technoloy Enhanced Learning (ECTEL 2015), Springer, NULL, 2015

Konferenz
In-app reflection guidance for workplace learning means motivating and guiding users to reflect on their working and learning, based on users' activities captured by the app. In this paper, we present ageneric concept for such in-app reflection guidance for workplace learning, its implementation in three di erent applications, and its evaluation in three di erent settings (one setting per app). From this experience, we draw the following lessons learned: First, the implemented in-appreflection guidance components are perceived as useful tools for reflective learning and their usefulness increases with higher usage rates. Second, smart technological support is su fficient to trigger reflection, however with di fferent implemented components also reflective learning takesplace on di erent stages. A sophisticated, unobtrusive integration in the working environment is not trivial at all. Automatically created prompts need a sensible timing in order to be perceived as useful and must not disrupt the current working processes.

Motivation and User Acceptance of Using Physiological Data to Support Individual Reflection

2nd International Workshop on Motivation and Affective Aspects in Technology Enhanced Learning (MATEL 2011), co-located with the Sixth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (ECTEL 2011), 2011

While research comes up with new sensors and physiologicaldata is gaining more attention in private usage, sensors play no role inprofessional learning. In this paper we shed light on the motivation touse physiological sensors in the workplace. Three user studies have beenconducted in five companies to assess the motivation to (a) wear sensorsand (b) reflect on physiological data during work. Based on these studies,we show that workers would be willing to use physiological sensors, butthe benefit of the awareness about the own physiological state is oftennot clear or the usability of sensors is insufficient. Moreover, in stressprone professions like emergency care there are already successful copingstrategies in place. Introducing physiological sensors has to provide clearbenefits by offering solutions to act on this awareness and focus on thepracticability of the sensors.

A science 2.0 infrastructure for technology-enhanced learning

Computer Science Education, 2010

Journal
Science 2.0 is a rather young concept and despite its short historyalready induced numerous controversial positions, oscillating between newtechnologies and new practices. Even though many TEL researchers already useScience 2.0 tools, although not always labeled as such, there is no commonlyshared practice and tools in use. Within this paper, we investigate the conceptof Science 2.0 and propose an embracing definition. From there we investigateexisting practice with pilot studies and propose a framework for further indepthstudy and elicitation of Science 2.0 practices of technology-enhancedlearning researchers. Furthermore, we propose a mash-up architecture andconcrete infrastructure to leverage Science 2.0 practice and technologies in ourfield, including the proposal of a publication feed format, a retrieval API, andthe provision of an initial set of data sources and services. We illustrate the useof this infrastructure with several Science 2.0 application examples, therebydemonstrating the strength of this infrastructure and architecture.

How to Manage Projects in a Foreign Language within Two Months: A Case Study

Konferenz
In times of globalization, also workforce needs to be able to go global. This holds true especially for technical experts holding an exclusive expertise. Together with a global manufacturing company, we addressed the challenge of being able to send staff into foreign countries for managing technical projects in the foreign language. We developed a socio-technical language learning concept that combines an online language learning platform with gamification features and conventional individual but virtually conducted coaching sessions. We report from a project we conducted with an international manufacturing company in which native Spanish speakers learned English within two months. The approach was tested in a four weeks trial with 10 participants.The target audience for this talk are HR-professionals, educational technologists and all people interested in language learning. We expect that our talk will spark discussions about the combination of ICT mediated learning and f-to-f learning in language learning and also about the role of gamification in this process.
