Workshop Description

With its duality of being an active input technology and a passive sensor, eye tracking provides unique opportunities for education and learning. Actively, the technology can serve as an input strategy for interactive learning environments. Passively, it can be applied to observe learning states and gain a better understanding of learners' cognitive processes. Given its scalability, it can,  or instance, help to improve collaborative learning, e.g., by establishing connections between learners during online lectures. Teachers or lecturers can also gain feedback about their learning material by analyzing students' eye gazes. However, many open challenges remain for the application of mobile eye tracking in learning and educational scenarios, including technical constraints and privacy concerns.   This workshop specifically targets researchers and practitioners who are interested in using eye tracking in education and learning. This includes researchers from all areas of psychology, human-computer interaction, computer science, eye tracking methodology, and other related fields. 

Workshop Format

The workshop will be virtual.

In addition, participants do not need to attend the full ETRA '22 to participate in the workshop. There is a "virtual workshop only" ticket available at the ETRA '22.

So EduEye participants need to book either the full ETRA '22 ticket or the virtual workshop only ticket to attend EduEye.

Workshop Program

  • Welcome and introduction to workshop goals (10 min + 20 min)
    The workshop will start with an introduction given by the workshop organizers. In the introduction the organizers will introduce the workshop topic and summarize its goals. This will be followed by a short introduction of the workshop participants to get to know each other and the topics that everybody is working on/interested in discussing during the workshop. For this, each participant will prepare one slide with information about their background (e.g., affiliation, main research interest) and what they are interested in discussing during the workshop. Every person will have 30 seconds to present this initial slide.
  • Keynote (30 min + 10 min)
    The keynote will be given by Halszka Jarodzka.
  • Coffee break (10 min)
  • Parallel group discussions (100 min)
    The participants of the workshop will prepare short 3-min video presentations of their work. We will then spend most of the workshop on working in small groups to develop research ideas together. We have assigned all contributions to topics (see schedule on website). We will start the working session with playing your 3-minute presentations. After that, all participants (presenters and attendees) can work together on developing an answer to the questions: The classroom of the future, what would education look like in 15 years? Which studies should be conducted to get there? Of course, we ask you to focus on the role of eye tracking in this vision. Your presentation can form an inspiration for this question and you may present your ideas already in the presentation.
  • Final discussion in plenary and farewell (60 min)
    The results of the group discussions will be presented in the final plenary. Each group will have 10 minutes to present their results.

Keynote

We are happy to announce that Prof. Halszka Jarodzka will give the keynote for our workshop!

Halszka Jarodzka is a full professor and chair of the department “Online Learning and Instruction” at the faculty of Educational Sciences at the Open Universiteit, the Netherlands. In her research, she studies how eye-tracking can help us to understand and to improve learning, testing, and instruction. In particular, she is interested in how visual expertise is constituted and how it develops, currently studying this phenomenon in teachers managing classrooms. Moreover, she studies how learners process educational material and how to improve its design, thereby focusing on videos, including eye movement modeling examples. Finally, she investigates how the use of multimedia in computerized testing can influences how testees process and perform on tests. She is one of the early adopters of eye-tracking in educational sciences and was active in popularizing this research topic by organizing conferences (e.g., European Conference on Eye Movements in 2013), in setting up and chairing a Special Interest Group at the European Association of Research on Learning and Instruction (SIG 27), co-authoring a popular handbook on eye-tracking (Holmqvist et al., 2011, Oxford University Press), providing workshops at universities across the globe (e.g., Stanford, USA; Freiburg, Germany), and setting up several Special Issues illustrating the diversity of this topic (e.g., Jarodzka, Skuballa, & Gruber, 2020, EPR; Harteis, Kok, & Jarodzka, 2018, FLR).
