Adaptive group formation to promote desired behaviours

  title={Adaptive group formation to promote desired behaviours},
  author={Amir Mujkanovic and David B. Lowe and Keith Willey},
Background: There is substantial literature that shows the benefits of collaborative work, though these benefits vary enormously with circumstances. Irrespective of their structure and composition, groups usually exist for a particular reason and implicitly or explicitly target one or more outcomes. The achievements of group outcomes depend on many factors, including the individual behaviour of each group member. These behaviours are, in turn, affected by the individual characteristics, the… Expand

Personality-Based Group Formation - A Large-Scale Study on the Role of Skills and Personality in Software Engineering Education
The extent to which it is possible to enhance the group outcomes by systematically reconstructing the groups of students and hence improve the performances and raise the overall outcome level of a software engineering lecture is evaluated. Expand
Dynamic Group Formation in Mobile Computer Supported Collaborative Learning Environment
A new approach for an automatic, customized, and dynamic group formation in Mobile Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (MCSCL) contexts based on the combination of three types of grouping criteria: learner’s personal characteristics, learner’s behaviours, and context information is proposed. Expand
Group Formation in Mobile Computer Supported Collaborative Learning Contexts: A Systematic Literature Review
This paper reviews the studies addressing the topic of LGF in MCSCL using a systematic literature review (SLR) methodology and provides explicit information on what criteria are used for forming learning group, how to manually or automatically collect and use these criteria, what algorithms are used to form learning groups, and what methods are followed to evaluate the proposed approaches.

Forming Groups of Mobile Learners that Promote Collaborative Learning Supported by Mobile Devices
In the review of the literature, a classification of learner group training methods ensuring a better interaction while taking into account the mobility of the learners is made. Expand
Using students’ learning style to create effective learning groups in MCSCL environments
New ways for automatically detecting the learning styles of students in MCSCL environments based on the learning style model of Felder-Silverman are presented. Expand
Design and evaluation of a technological-enhanced lab environment for a systems and network administration course

Forming Suitable Groups in MCSCL Environments
Results show that the proposed MCSCL “solution” represents a “hard-hitting” and “time-consuming” task that should be considered considered. Expand

Unsupervised learning algorithm for adaptive group formation: Collaborative learning support in remotely accessible laboratories
By using a set of individual/group characteristics and group behavior, a framework for group formation that continuously adapts rules used for the grouping process in order to optimize the selected performance criteria of the group is explored. Expand
An architecture for automated group formation within remote laboratories
Group/Team formation has been a well studied field in numerous contexts, (i.e. business teams, project teams, educational teams etc.) but have barely been considered within the scope of remoteExpand
Group Formation for Collaboration in Exploratory Learning Using Group Technology Techniques
This paper presents a computational model for group formation for open-ended exploration in ELEs by modelling the various strategies that learners adopt to solve the same task, underpinned by Group Technology techniques that use as criteria the learners' strategies and the similarity among them to form groups that match pedagogy considerations. Expand
The impact of learning styles on student grouping for collaborative learning: a case study
This paper presents how the benefit of considering learning styles with adaptation purposes, as part of the user model, can be extended to the context of collaborative learning as a key feature for group formation. Expand
A Group Formation Tool in an E-Learning Context
A Web-based group formation tool that supports the instructor to automatically create both homogeneous and heterogeneous groups based on up to three criteria and the learner to negotiate the grouping and the learners to be informed for the groups formed. Expand
Using similarity measures for collaborating groups formation: A model for distance learning environments
This paper defines two similarity coefficients between users and learning objects and focuses on automatic creation of properly matching collaborating groups based on an algorithmic approach to assuring optimal value of user's learning. Expand
