Using Simulation Games and Learning Analytics at Utrecht University

Tuesday, February 14 | 2:30PM–3:15PM | Houston Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
This demo discusses how Utrecht University develops and uses simulation games and learning analytics through Educate-it, a university-wide program stimulating innovations in education. In particular, we will show how we use Communicate, a serious game for practicing communication skills, in medicine, pharmacy, psychology, and other programs, and we will show a learning analytics service used to collect information about conceptual understanding and misunderstanding of students working in Communicate or on digital assessments.

Outcomes: Learn how to create an environment where you can develop simulations that allow students to practice professional skills *Learn how to set up an environment to analyze activities from students in simulations for professional skills and digital assessment tools *Learn how to develop an ecosystem for technology for learning to support or improve functionality, usability, and sustainability
