Dr. Samuel Tobler (D-GESS)

Dr. Samuel Tobler (D-GESS) is lecturer at the Professorship for Learning Sciences and Higher Education at ETH Zurich, teaches the course “The Science of Learning from Failure” alongside Manu Kapur.

Dr. Christian Thurn and Dr. Simona Daguati

Dr. Christian Thurn and Dr. Simona Daguati will introduce “ConceptMappR,” a digital dashboard that enables lecturers to effectively create and analyze concept maps. Concept maps are an established formative assessment tool to support learning by providing feedback to students and teachers. However, concept maps often are challenging to analyze and interpret.

Dr. Rafael Libanori

Dr. Rafael Libanori (D-MATL) is a senior researcher and lecturer who has been actively involved in developing project-based learning courses in the D-MATL. In his presentation, he will delve into the peer-reviewing strategy implemented in his courses, aimed at fostering increased student engagement and mitigating the issue of free-riding within groups.  This peer-reviewing strategy draws inspiration from the impartial group assessment developed by Dr. Heinrich Nax, which incorporates economic theory to effectively assign the relative contributions of each group member to the overall project outcome.
