Purpose Introducing technology at work presents a special challenge as learning is tightly integrated with workplace practices. Current design-based research (DBR) methods are focused on formal learning context and often questioned for a lack of yielding traceable research insights. This paper aims to propose a method that extends DBR by understand...
Article
Co-creation is a term encompassing various forms of active stakeholder engagement and collaboration aiming at (i) innovation and research results that are more relevant and responsive to society, (ii) wider and more efficient adoption of research and innovation, and (iii) stronger ties of innovation with the individual end user/consumer. Several ap...
Article
The importance of informal learning in modern, fast paced work environments has long been recognised. While technology support has been suggested for informal learning by individuals and in organisations, it is only more recently, that we have been able to study in more detail how technology can support such learning in real workplaces. This paper...
Conference Paper
Developing good self-regulated learning (SRL) skills is highly important for medical students, not only to help them to navigate and succeed at their current study, but to support their continuing professional development and lifelong learning once they enter the workplace. A key component of SRL is the ability to reflect on feedback and to use thi...

This paper presents a reflective case study of the introduction of Learning Toolbox as an ePoster solution for conferences. The Learning Toolbox ePoster platform is designed to overcome practical knowledge sharing and communication problems encountered in both the traditional paper poster and standard, screen-based ePoster approaches. Additionally...
Conference Paper
To develop as lifelong learners, students need to make use of self-regulation skills, which allow them to prepare, perform, and reflect on their learning. A Quantified Self approach, underpinned by Big Data, can offer a solution to providing personalised feedback that supports self-regulation at scale. Within the context of our project — my Persona...
Article
The implicit, spontaneous and hidden nature of informal learning in addition to the large and less predictable number of application scenarios challenge the evaluation of learning technology. A further challenge for evaluation is added if a user-centred design method had been employed that already had involved users in large numbers and has led to...

It can be viewed (and downloaded as a pdf) from: https://www.mededpublish.org/manuscripts/1528 Abstract: Introduction: In the 21st Century, medical personnel require electronic and written communication skills in order to communicate with colleagues and patients. These specific skills are seldom taught, as communicatio...
Conference Paper
The issue of preparedness of medical students to work as junior doctors has come under increasing scrutiny. One of the key challenge for tomorrow’s doctors is the capacity and engagement for continuing professional learning and development, as well as, appropriate decision making. consequently, medical schools are exploring various ways in which te...
Conference Paper
Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) tools have the potential to provide important support for workplace learning – supporting reflective and collaborative learning practices at the workplace. However the introduction of such tools has often been difficult, with low adoption rates and even complete project failures as the tools are deemed not to fit...

There is increasing interest in Barcamps and Unconferences as an educational approach during traditional medical education conferences. Our group has now accumulated extensive experience in these formats over a number of years in different educational venues. We present a summary of observations and lessons learned about what works and what doesn’t

Background: How can mobile technology support practice-based learning of nursing students in complex health care settings and create a bridge to their formal education? We report on the first stage of an exploratory study at Universitat Gimbernat (Barcelona) involving 10 volunteer students, their tutor, and the department's placement coordinator. S...

One of the major challenges in higher education is developing self-regulation skills for lifelong learning. We address this challenge within the myPAL project, in medical education context, utilising the vast amount of student assessment and feedback data collected throughout the programme. The underlying principle of myPAL is Quantified Self -- th...
Article
Background and objectives: All health and social care professionals learn on the job through both formal and informal learning processes, which contributes to continuous professional development (CPD). This study explored workplace learning in General Practices, specifically looking at the role of informal learning and the workplace practices that...
Conference Paper

This paper proposes a methodology which attempts to address the barriers to the development of successful educational design research through a process which identifies gaps in current practices and devises innovations to target them. Educational design research assumes an ambitious position: a dual commitment to understand and contribute to both t...
Conference Paper
This position paper presents a forward-looking view on addressing a long standing professional learning challenge faced by higher educational institutions, namely assisting students to make meaning from work-based experience and develop as reflexive professionals. We suggest that a synergetic approach, building on existing research in professional...
Article

Social learning networks enable the sharing, transfer and enhancement of knowledge in the workplace that builds the ground to exchange informal learning practices. In this work, three healthcare networks are studied in order to understand how to enable the building, maintaining and activation of new contacts at work and the exchange of knowledge be...

Bits and Pieces, a web-based User Interface for Sensemaking
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper explores how informal learning can be assessed in the work environment which bears difficulties, as informal learning is largely invisible and people lack awareness of informal learning. We perform an exploratory case study involving 24 healthcare professionals representing small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in six healthcare netwo...

EN: In 2015, two conferences are brought together under the umbrella of „knowledge communities“ with complementary thematic priorities. While the GeNeMe deals with organisational and technical perspectives in the context of Virtual Enterprises, Communities & Social Networks, the ProWM provides a broad and inclusive overview of the organisational, c...

Sensemaking at the workplace and in educational contexts has been extensively studied for decades. Interestingly, making sense out of the own wealth of learning experiences at the workplace has been widely ignored. To tackle this issue, we have implemented a novel sensemaking interface for healthcare professionals to support learning at the workpla...

In the process of everyday work, medical doctors usually have no time for reflecting, organizing and making sense of information that reflects valuable informal learning experiences. In this paper we propose a prototype that supports retrieval from episodic memory of informal experiences and sensemaking in semantic memory. A paper prototype was use...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Driven by ever shorter cycles of innovation, organizations and individuals nowadays have to acquire, understand and apply new knowledge in shorter periods of time [1]. Much of this rapid learning appears to be achieved by workers learning on the job and from colleagues – informal learning rather than learning from traditional, curriculum-based trai...
Article
This paper presents a method of dialogue analysis called Exchange Structure Analysis (ESA). The research question was whether ESA (a relatively easy to apply analysis of turn taking), could help to clarify differences between peer and tutor roles. If so, then it may prove useful in evaluating how effective tutors are in transferring discussion skil...
