The Global Management Challenge is an international competition represented by more than 30 countries. This competition is based on business simulations with the objective of obtaining the highest investment performance. University students, among others, participate in this challenge.
AIH is proud to announce that our team, AIHE1, came a close third in the Global Management Challenge Project (2020 Australian Winners). Members of the team include Anjana Dhungana (Team Leader), Leewan Belle Morones, Charlene Christine Servandil and Arafat Anik. Team participants gain knowledge while enhancing their problem solving and data analytical skills. Congratulations to all involved.
AIH is proud to present Web-based educational system for learning Python programming. All students who are enrolled in the unit Foundations of programming can use the adaptive Web-based system designed by the University of Pittsburgh. It supports open learner modelling and different types of learning content. It tracks student activity and provides recommendations and feedback to the student.
In this research project, we plan to analyse data obtained from applying the adaptive platform that provides access to different types of learning resources including problems, quizzes, examples, reading material, visualisations, and simulations. A wide range of adaptative technologies (including adaptive navigation, intelligent tutoring, adaptive recommendation, etc.) is integrated to support personalised learning.
Learner behaviour in the system will be observed. All the actions made, problems solved, and visited animated examples will be analysed. By analysing the students’ interactions with the system, we will be able to understand their interests, intentions, goals, and knowledge level. The study will contribute to a better understanding of how weekly practice with the system during the course correlated with encouraging effect on engagement and efficiency, helping students to complete more practice content faster, and easier.
We expect higher learning gain by encouraging students to use the additional educational resources provided through the system and improving students’ learning experience.
From the studies conducted at Pittsburgh, USA, and Novi Sad, Serbia, significant parameters were extracted and they will be compared to the study being performed at our institution, AIH, Sydney.
AIH is proud to present 4 students who are part of a team that represents the Global Management Challenge Project. The Global Management Challenge is an international Competition represented by more than 30 countries. Many of the participants are young students that major in economics, management and engineering among other disciplines. The Strategy consists of a simulation that runs a company with the aim of achieving the highest Investment Performance. The competitors are given the opportunity to analyse the Financial and Economic indicators of a company. This leads to a understanding of market conditions and customer satisfaction. It further enhances the skills that encourage and develop teamwork. More details about the Global Management Challenge can be found on the website (http://globalmanagementchallenge.pt/worldgmc/).
The challenge began on the 1st September 2020 and will conclude at the end of the month.
