Developing Careers through Social Networks and Transversal Competencies (EU Horizon 2020, 2016-2019)
The aim of the project is to develop a personalised learning environment for career development. The environment will provide assessment of transversal competencies and social capital to highlight opportunities for career development and to inform and guide learners towards realistic and attainable careers. The contributions of UWE Bristol are to apply information extraction, data mining and social network analysis techniques to assess the learner’s social capital using evidence gathered from diverse sources in a workplace.
PROPS: Postgraduate Researcher Online Psycho-education and Support (Office For Students, 2018-2020)
PROPS aims to address PGR students' mental health and wellbeing issues through the co-design of app-based self-help and social interaction. It also seeks to better connect PGR students to supervisory teams and other institutional support. Research will centre on how to cater to the diversity of the PGR student population and how to develop an intelligent user interface that makes use of engagement analytics. The project will be informed by clinical and educational research and a user-centred design process. The project is part of the Catalyst programme of OfS/Research England (formerly HEFCE) on improving the mental health of PGR students.
Smarticipate (EU Horizon 2020, 2017-20)
The project aims to make effective use of open government data for planning applications. The project will develop a platform that enables citizens to start planning proposals in 2D/3D, get system generated feedback on the suitability of the proposal (ie environmental and economic feasibility), collaborate with other citizens and seek suggestions for improvement.
