Dutch Bestseller, 'The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen'
After the ICIC 2016 in Barcelona this past week I'm still reflecting on Lancaster and the Network Learning Conference. It has been a busy month. I'll write about Barcelona (again) soon, but with the ICIC presentation done (thanks to all 30+ who attended the session and engaged afterwards) I can catch up a little. Despite the stress this implies this is all positive as the challenge lies in the opportunities and tensions between nursing-healthcare, education and technology.
In Lancaster, Fran Tracy (Liverpool John Moores University) and Jesper Jensen (University of Southern Denmark) held a symposium - Designs for learning with the Semantic Web. Three papers were presented followed by discussion on:
1) the emergent nature of semantic web technologies, 2) how participatory research practices like DBR are affected during the development of semantic web technologies and 3) how both of these concepts may find a new place as we move forward into increasingly complex and changeable educational environments.
a systematic but flexible methodology aimed to improve educational practices through iterative analysis, design, development, and implementation, based on collaboration among researchers and practitioners in real-world settings, and leading to contextually-sensitive design principles and theories. (p. 7)The context sensitive is were I see a role for situated learning. There are a couple of hierarchies that result. Situated learning brings in the community (- of practice), but Hodges' is firstly about the student, the care situation and their learning with the model, reflection and developing reflective practice. There are few examples of technology mediated group reflection, but the technical challenges of the group form make the individual starting point more realistic?
|Hodges' model: Four Knowledge Domains and the Spiritual|
The following is from a literature review by Rainforth, M., & Laurenson, M. (2014) for a draft paper on Hodges' model and case formulation [CF]. They do not refer to diagrams, but two models are included and the role of modelling. The paper is supportive for Hodges' model within mental health, forensic care and supervision more generally.
Crowe et al. (2008) suggest an advantage of CF is its ability to create understanding of service user needs regardless of their diagnostic classification. Thus an emphasis on the link between training provision, training outcomes and treatment plans is needed so practitioners understand the frameworks for conceptualizing mental distress whilst also being able to recognize the expertise of the service user in CF development.
A goal of the person-specific evaluation of CF is the development of an intra-individual statistical prediction model for actuarial prediction tailored to the specific issues and life circumstances. The essence of CF is its ability to provide shared understanding of a person’s presenting problems through theoretical explanation of assumed causes and maintaining factors, so appropriate interventions can be utilized (p.208).
This week's New Scientist asks the question: "What is Information?". Its neighbouring article is on empathy. I've bought a copy to add to my small library on 'information' (and its analogue?).
ARTEL 2016 to be held in the context of the EC-TEL 2016, Lyon, France: 13 September 2016 (Tuesday). Workshop webpage: http://teleurope.eu/artel16
Twitter hashtag: #artel16
Awareness and reflection are viewed differently across the disciplines informing Technology-Enhanced Learning (CSCW, psychology, educational sciences, computer science and others). The ARTEL workshop series brings together researchers and professionals from different backgrounds to provide a forum for discussing the multi-faceted area of awareness and reflection. 2016 will be the 6th workshop in the series.
Through the last ARTEL workshops at EC-TEL the topic has gained maturity and questions addresses are converging towards the usage of awareness and reflection in practice, its implementation in modern organisations, its impact on learners and questions of feasibility and sustainability for awareness and reflection in education and work. To reflect the growing maturity of research in ARTEL over the years in conjunction with the latest trends in TEL, this year’s topic particularly invites contributions that deal with the contribution and impact of Learning Analytics on awareness and reflection. The motto of the workshop this year is:
"Learning Analytics for Awareness and Reflection: How can Learning Analytics methodologies and tools support awareness and reflection in different learning contexts?"
The workshop aims at:
Providing a forum for presenting and discussing research on awareness and reflection in TEL.
Creating an interactive experience that connects participants' research, current tools or latest prototypes and models with real end users' learning experiences and requirements regarding reflection technology.
Creating an agenda for future ARTEL research and development.
Proceedings of the predecessor workshops are available via http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-790/ (2011), http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-931/ (2012), http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-1103/ (2013), http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-1238/ (2014), and http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-1465/ (2015).
*Topics of interest*
For ARTEL 2016 we particularly invite contributions that address the theme of 'Learning Analytics methodologies and tools support awareness and reflection in different learning contexts' (but not restrict contributions to this theme).
We are looking for contributions that address the following aspects:
- Theoretical discussion of awareness and reflection in TEL and related concepts (e.g., collaborative learning, creativity techniques, experiential learning, etc.).
- Methodologies to identify, study and analyse awareness and reflection in the context of (technology-enhanced) learning (quantitative and qualitative methods, learning analytics, visualisations etc.).
- Empirical studies about technology support for awareness and reflection.
- Technology (design, application, evaluation) supporting awareness and reflection.
- Designing awareness and reflection in TEL applications and processes.
- Using awareness and reflection support to enhance the learning experience.
- Awareness of social context, knowledge, artefacts and processes.
- Awareness and reflection in specific contexts, such as higher education, work-integrated learning, learning networks, etc.

I continue to be surprised, informed and stimulated by the many contrasts and similarities between nursing and information technology. A constant encounter as a mentor is hearing accounts about student nurses and their learning experience. After 12-18 months since beginning their student career what are student's learning, being taught? And yes: nursing theory and models of care still seem twee, out-of-date, out-of fashion.
Change is inevitable of course; in tech if you are not on-board (as in the web), there is a progression of buses and you can get on at any time. At least I hope that's the case. As Web Design magazine asks: "How will CSS be styling the web in 2017, 2018 or 2019?" So for students there are many university blocks, lectures, clinical placements, mentors...: so many buses. Hopefully they really do get on-board sooner rather than later.
The snapshot of evidence as I have it re. models of care, nursing theory and reflection suggests there is quite a vacuum at a time when there is both a need for a tool like Hodges' model and an opportunity.
There are valuable lessons in the history of models of care while we relish the challenges of the future. Those lessons are still relevant as the nursing community and its practitioners constantly travel between the mechanistic and humanistic forms of knowledge that nursing demands.
Technology changes all the time and with it, the buses, the roads and even the bus stops. Clearly, we need our students to be as well equipped as possible. Not to deal with change, then it is too late. We need future practitioners to be able to critique potential change. This is crucial when future change involves nursing itself and nursing's values.

International Workshop on Personalisation and Adaptation in Technology for Health (PATH 2016) http://pathworkshop.com/ Held in conjunction with the 24th International Conference on User Modelling, Adaptation and Personalisation (UMAP 2016), Halifax, Canada, 13-17 July 2016.
Motivation and Goals
We have reached a critical point in Healthcare where professionals and patients have the technology to adopt personalised health support. The World Health Organisation has recognised the importance of this industry. This full day workshop will showcase innovative user modelling, personalisation and adaptation research that focuses on promoting access, improving efficiency and enhancing quality using technology within healthcare. It aims to connect the more theoretical work in user modelling and personalisation with the more grounded needs of healthcare workers and manufacturers to promote research that is timely, innovative, and focused on the needs of users.
It builds on six previous workshops presented at UM 2005, UM 2007, 21st IEEE CBMS (2008), AIME 2009, EHealth 2010 and UMAP 2015 as well as a special issue on Personalisation for E-Health in UMUAI 2011.
Topics of interest
This workshop will focus on the many aspects of personalisation for health delivery, related to e-Health environments. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
