As necessary for creating a learner-centered environment, nowadays teachers are expected to be more mindful about their proximity distribution: how to spend time in different locations of the classroom with individual learners. However feedback on this is only given to teachers by experts after classroom observation.

Automatic Teacher Modeling from Live Classroom AudioDonnelly, P. J., Blanchard, N., Samei, B., … D’Mello, S. K. - 2016 - Proceedings of the 2016 Conference on User Modeling Adaptation and Personalization, 45–53
