The following is an initial, under-construction attempt to explain (first to myself) how/what role an Information Systems Design Theory (ISDT) places in the research process. Working my way toward a decent explanation for PhD students. It does this by linking the components of an ISDT with one explanation of a research project. Hopefully connecting the
In the absence of an established workflow for curating thoughts and resources I am using this blog post to save links to some resources. It’s also being used as an initial attempt to write down some thoughts on these resources and beyond. All very rough. Fourth industrial revolution This from the world economic forum (authored
Following is a summary of Johanson and Hasselbring (2018) and an exploration of what, if anything, it might suggest for learning design and learning analytics. Johanson and Hasselbring (2018) explore why scientists whom have been developing software to do science (computational science) haven’t been using principles and practices from software engineering to develop this software.
@OpenKuroko is lucky enough to be attending OER18, which got off with a bang on Twitter last night. This brief bit of thinking out loud explores the differences in understanding of the word repository by two different, but related communities, open source software and Open Educational Resources.

What follows will eventually be a summary of my contribution to a the ASCILITE’2017 panel titled Are learning analytics leading us towards a utopian or dystopian future, and what can we as practitioners do to influence this?. Below you’ll find a summary of my prediction and the argument that underpins it, suggestions for more reading,
The following provides a collection of information and resources associated with a paper and presentation given at ALASI 2017 – the Australian Learning Analytics Summer Institute in Brisbane on 30 November, 2017. Below you’ll find an abstract, a recording of a version of the presentation, the presentation slides and the references. The paper examines the
The following post contains the content from a poster designed for the 2017 USQ Toowoomba L&T celebration event. It provides some rationale for a technology demonstrator at USQ based on the Moodle Activity Viewer. What is the problem? Learner engagement is a key to learner success. Most definitions of learner engagement include “actively participating, interacting,
What follows are the resources associated with a workshop being run at the University of Southern Queensland. As the title suggests, the aim is to get USQ folk started using the Moodle Activity Viewer to explore usage of Moodle activities and resources, and to briefly introduce the idea of digital renovation.
