Luis P. Prieto is a Senior Research Fellow at the School of Educational Sciences in Tallinn University (Estonia), and is a former Marie Curie Fellow at the (CHILI) Lab in EPFL (Switzerland). He has done research on open architectures to communicate heterogeneous learning technologies, modelling teacher orchestration load using eye-trackers, or other forms of multimodal teaching and learning analytics. He has also proposed theoretical frameworks both on the field of classroom orchestration and learning analytics. He has organized multiple collaborative workshops, both on advanced research topics and for teacher professional development.
María Jesús Rodríguez-Triana finished her PhD in Information and Communication Technologies at the University of Valladolid (Spain) in 2014. Afterwards, she joined the REACT group at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) as a postdoctoral fellow. Since November 2016, she is a senior researcher at the Centre of Excellence in Educational Innovation of Tallinn University and EPFL. Her research lines address classroom orchestration, learning design and learning analytics in ubiquitous learning environments, with special emphasis on collaborative and inquiry-based learning. Currently, she is investigating the challenges and strategies towards the adoption of learning analytics in authentic scenarios, including aspects such as ethics and privacy, visualisations and data literacy, pedagogically grounded analytics and algorithmic accountability.
