Despite advances in research and shifts in policy, professional practices can be slow to change. At the same time, there is a growing abundance of data available about everyone’s performance in the workplace.
This talk, which has the full title of "Exploiting data to improve professional practice", shows how performance data can be used to guide the professional development of individuals, thereby improving professional practices. How we collect, present and manage the use of this data to tailor professional development and improve practice requires research input from many disciplines including IT, the learning sciences, and workplace research and policy.
This event will provide overviews of some of the issues and challenges, as well as possible research approaches and solutions regarding data use for professional development. The aim of this event is to help shape an R&D program and build new research partnerships.
It will be co-chaired by Associate Professor Tim Shaw (Health Workforce Education), Associate Professor Manju Sharma (Science Education), Professor Judy Kay (Human Centred Computing), and Associate Professor Janette Bobis (Mathematics Education).
