The 13th annual International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation (ICERI) took place this year from November 9th to 10th with a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous contributions. 12 tracks of diverse content from participants from 70 different countries were brought together in a virtual environment. The SIDDATA project also made two international contributions.
With the title “Taking the Role of the Other“, Maren Lübcke, Funda Seyfeli and Klaus Wannemacher from HIS-HE present the results of virtual design thinking workshops with students from the three SIDDATA universities in a poster, video and conference volume. With this innovation method, HIS-HE has, among other things, investigated the question of how the concept of the “persona”, which has been adopted from psychology, influences the generation and development of ideas for the data-supported study assistant. You can read more about the results in the poster article and in the DigiBlog-HISHE.
Claudia M. König, Christin Karrenbauer, Nadine Guhr and Michael H. Breitner, Institute for Information Systems at Leibniz University Hannover, focus in their article and presentation slides entitled “Dialogue-driven Digital Study Assistants for Higher Education – A Morphological Analysis“, a digital assistance system that is being researched and developed in parallel within the SIDDATA project. The morphological analysis, which elaborates the characteristics of a dialogue-driven DSA, supports and motivates students in their individual study situation. It is based on an international literature search and data collected from students and other stakeholders. The analysis process is based on a student-centered perspective and is presented in different scenarios.
Both articles appear in the extensive proceedings of ICERI2020.
