[publication] Inverse Blended Learning – a didactical concept for MOOCs and its positive effects on dropout-rates #mooc #imoox

We are very happy to announce that our chapter on „Inverse Blended Learning – a didactical concept for MOOCs and its positive effects on dropout-rates“ is published 🙂

Abstract:

Massive Open Online Courses, shortly MOOS, are one important trend of technology-enhanced learning of the last years. In this contribution we introduce a new didactical approach that we call „inverse blended learning“ (IBL). Whereas „blended learning“ is the enrichment of traditional learning settings through online inputs or phases, the IBL approach aims to enhance a pure online course with additional offline meetings for exchange and practising. Within two case studies the concept was tested and evaluated. The research study points out that the typical high dropout rate for MOOCs decreased arbitrarily. Therefore we recommend introducing the didactical approach of inverse blended learning in future MOOCs, if applicable.

[workshop] Making with Kids to Foster STEAM Education #edil19 #edmedia

I am happy that I can announce a workshop on „Making with Kids to Foster STEAM Education“ at this year EdMedia + Innovate Learning conference in Amsterdam.

Description:

Some of Europe’s leading experts on making with children will share their experiences and different approaches within this joint workshop. The workshop will include presentations about teacher education within makerspaces at Graz University of Technologies (AT) as well as a short introduction about the first Maker Days for Kids in August 2018 for children aged 10-14 years. Participants will work with a set of tools and smaller maker projects. For example they can work with an BBC:MicroBit or an Ozobot for educational purposes. The examples shown were especially prepared for an open learning setting within a huge maker space environment. Interactive discussions will be the base to develop own future implementations.

So we would love to welcome you there. Here you can find all details about the workshop [Link to conference website]

[publication] PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17 #tugraz #research

It’s a great pleasure that our research about „PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17“ got published in the International Journal of Online and Biomedical Engineering (iJOE).

Abstract:

This work describes the research activities performed in the field of engineering education at Austrian Federal Colleges of Engineering (HTL) in collaboration with both Graz and Vienna Universities of Technology. To support the collaboration process in engineering education, a Product Data Management (PDM) system was introduced to several Austrian HTLs. In the academic year 2016/17, a field study was begun and that will continue in 2017/18 to determine how to enhance collaboration between students by using this kind of software and methods. This paper, which is continuing a paper presented at ICL2017 in Budapest presents the first results, obtained in the academic year 2016/17 of the survey and the impression of the lecturers regarding the level of collaboration within students’ design projects.

[keynote] Bildungsinformatik als Motor zur digitalen Mündigkeit? #tugraz #icm8 #makereducation

Im Rahmen der ICM 2019 in Marburg darf ich heute über „Bildungsinformatik als Motor zur digitalen Mündigkeit?“ reden. Hier gibt es dazu meine Folien:

[publication] Learning Analytics – eine Einführung #LearningAnalytics #TUGraz

Ich durfte in der Zeitschrift „Bildung und Beruf“ eine kurze Einführung zu Learning Analytics geben – hier der Beitrag.

Zusammenfassung:

Learning Analytics ist ein sehr junges Forschungsgebiet aus dem Bereich der Bildungsinformatik und versucht durch das Sammeln und Gegenüberstellen von Daten Unterstützung im Lernprozess zu geben. Dieser Beitrag gibt eine Einführung und stellt die wesentlichen Aspekte, kritischen Punkte, Ziele und Methoden vor. Weiters soll dabei ein Bezug zur berufsbildenden Schulpraxis geschaffen werden.
