Learning in Exploratory Environments: Freedom, Control, Research

  • Speaker: Dr Sergio Gutierrez-Santos
  • Date: Thursday, 11 October 2012 from 16:30 to 17:30
  • Location: Room 160, Birkbeck Main Building

Exploratory Learning Environments (ELE) aim at empowering students to learn while they explore a given domain on their own terms. ELE can make the learning experience more engaging, fun, and productive. On the other hand, they require a lot of support for learners (and teachers), which is very challenging to provide when you are a computer and not a human being. This seminar will introduce the importance of exploratory learning, both pedagogically and technically, and the open research challenges in the field from a technical point of view
