Baroni, Alice; Dooly, Melinda; García, Pilar Garcés; Guth, Sarah; Hauck, Mirjam; Helm, Francesca; Lewis, Tim; Mueller-Hartmann, Andreas; O'Dowd, Robert; Rienties, Bart; Rogaten, Jekaterina – Research-publishing.net, 2019
Students of initial teacher education need to be prepared for the classrooms of tomorrow. Teachers require the necessary skills and competences to teach in culturally diverse contexts, to collaborate across disciplines, and to use technologies in innovative ways; but the Digital Economy and Society Index reports that only 20-25% of students in…

Herodotou, Christothea; Rienties, Bart; Verdin, Barry; Boroowa, Avinash – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
Predictive Learning Analytics (PLA) aim to improve learning by identifying students at risk of failing their studies. Yet, little is known about how best to integrate and scaffold PLA initiatives into higher education institutions. Towards this end, it becomes essential to capture and analyze the perceptions of relevant educational stakeholders…

Rienties, Bart; Héliot, YingFei – Studies in Higher Education, 2018
While interdisciplinary courses are regarded as a promising method for students to learn and apply knowledge from other disciplines, there is limited empirical evidence available whether interdisciplinary courses can effectively "create" interdisciplinary students. In this innovative quasi-experimental study amongst 377 Master's…

Rienties, Bart; Lewis, Tim; McFarlane, Ruth; Nguyen, Quan; Toetenel, Lisette – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2018
Language education has a rich history of research and scholarship focusing on the effectiveness of learning activities and the impact these have on student behaviour and outcomes. One of the basic assumptions in foreign language pedagogy and CALL in particular is that learners want to be able to communicate effectively with native speakers of…

Nguyen, Quan; Huptych, Michal; Rienties, Bart – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Extensive research in learning science has established the importance of time management in online learning. Recently, learning analytics (LA) has shed further lights on the temporal characteristics of learning by allowing researchers to capture authentic digital footprints of student learning behaviours. Nonetheless, students' timing of…

Rienties, Bart; Tempelaar, Dirk – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
Most research related to learning in groups focuses on the unit of the group and/or group members. However, students may benefit from crossing the boundaries of their own group, as students in different groups may provide access to new, nonredundant knowledge and opportunities for learning. Whether boundary crossing between groups is beneficial…

Mittelmeier, Jenna; Long, Dianne; Cin, Firdevs Melis; Reedy, Katharine; Gunter, Ashley; Raghuram, Parvati; Rienties, Bart – Open Learning, 2018
Learning design approaches, such as those adopted by the Open University, provide a set of tools and resources for purposefully-designing modules with a focus on student experiences. However, many of the current learning design strategies have been situated within specific institutions in Europe and North America. This means that there are several…

Rienties, Bart; Herodotou, Christothea; Olney, Tom; Schencks, Mat; Boroowa, Avi – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2018
The importance of teachers in online learning is widely acknowledged to effectively support and stimulate learners. With the increasing availability of learning analytics data, online teachers might be able to use learning analytics dashboards to facilitate learners with different learning needs. However, deployment of learning analytics…

Mittelmeier, Jenna; Rienties, Bart; Tempelaar, Dirk; Whitelock, Denise – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2018
As universities worldwide rapidly internationalise, higher education classrooms have become unique spaces for collaboration between students from different countries. One common way to encourage collaboration between diverse peers is through group work. However, previous research has highlighted that cross-cultural group work can be challenging…

Tempelaar, Dirk; Rienties, Bart; Nguyen, Quan – Interactive Technology and Smart Education, 2018
Purpose: This empirical study aims to demonstrate how the combination of trace data derived from technology-enhanced learning environments and self-response survey data can contribute to the investigation of self-regulated learning processes. Design/methodology/approach: Using a showcase based on 1,027 students' learning in a blended introductory…

Jones, Anna; Lygo-Baker, Simon; Markless, Sharon; Rienties, Bart; Di Napoli, Roberto – Higher Education Research and Development, 2017
This paper explores the notion of impact in the context of academic development programs and considers how it can be described and understood. We argue that impact has a range of meanings and academic development programs such as graduate certificates have a broad group of stakeholders and hence the impact is different for each group depending on…

Tempelaar, Dirk T.; Rienties, Bart; Nguyen, Quan – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2017
Studies in the field of learning analytics (LA) have shown students' demographics and learning management system (LMS) data to be effective identifiers of "at risk" performance. However, insights generated by these predictive models may not be suitable for pedagogically informed interventions due to the inability to explain why students…

Li, Nai; Marsh, Vicky; Rienties, Bart; Whitelock, Denise – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2017
A vast body of research has indicated the importance of distinguishing new vs. continuing students' learning experiences in blended and online environments. Continuing learners may have developed learning and coping mechanisms for "surviving" in such learning environments, while new learners might still need to adjust their learning…

Rienties, Bart; Cross, Simon; Marsh, Vicky; Ullmann, Thomas – Open Learning, 2017
Most distance learning institutions collect vast amounts of learning data. Making sense of this 'Big Data' can be a challenge, in particular when data are stored at different data warehouses and require advanced statistical skills to interpret complex patterns of data. As a leading institute on learning analytics, the Open University UK instigated…
