When learning is high stake

Firefighters need to maintain certain competence levels and rescue skills. Uni Research develop new tools to provide firefighters with insight into their competence status.

The researchers are looking for ways to collect data about the firefighters competence and skills. Here from a demonstration of a system for fire fight training based on VR technology. Photo. Rune Rolvsjord.

The researchers are using competence modelling, learner  models, learning  analytics,  and  visualisations in  order provide  insight into competence status and development on the individual, team, and organisation level, and to  provide early - alerts  and automated  messages  to  instructors  responsible for planning training activities, as   well   as    to team   leaders responsible  for  making  decisions  about  teams  in  high  stakes situations.

The research was presented at the International Learning Analytics &Knowledge 2017
