Van Labeke, N., Kirby, J., and Roberts, T. (2016). Personalised and Adaptive Mentoring in Medical Education – the myPAL project. In Proceedings of First International Workshop on Intelligent Mentoring Systems (IMS 2016) (IMS @ ITS'16 - Zagreb, Croatia). pp. 1-7.
This position paper describes a long-term Technology-Enhanced Learning initiative at the Leeds Institute of Medical Education in which a personalised adaptive learning mentor will be deployed for all MBChB students enrolled in the course. The system, myPAL, is enriching the existing TEL programs embedded in the curriculum and will be leveraging recent advances in Learning Analytics and Open Learner Modelling. The paper presents the context of the project and the opportunities that deployment settings will offer, and highlights the research and development strands that will underpin it.
