The 2022 Research Webinar Series continued with a presentation on 18 May, featuring Dr Gergely Rakoczi. Dr Rakoczi is Head of the Digital Teaching and Learning Service Unit of TU Wien, Austria’s largest research and educational institution in the field of technology and natural sciences. We were delighted to host Dr Rakoczi as part of a 2022 Erasmus+ exchange.
Digital Technology in Education
This Erasmus+ exchange was an opportunity for Hibernia College and TU Wien to share best practices on the use of digital technologies in education and to explore potential collaborations between the institutions. The webinar and Dr Rakoczi’s visit provided an opportunity to learn from his insights and experience in the fascinating area of digital teaching and learning research.
Eye Tracking and E-Learning
Eye tracking & e-learning: what and how do students see? was the title of Dr Rakoczi’s webinar. He discussed his PhD research on eye tracking in the context of e-learning — specifically, the eye movements of learners when interacting with Moodle. Dr Rakoczi shared the outcomes from his studies and his reflections on the methodology of eye tracking in the context of e-learning design.
