[CfP] Special Issue „Innovative Technologies in Education“ #research

I would like to invite you to a Special Issue about „Innovative Technologies in Education“.

Dear Colleagues,
In the current situation of a worldwide pandemic, the use of digital technologies in education is not only a hot topic but simply a necessity. Due to the lockdown of schools and universities over an extended period of time, teachers had no alternative other than to use such technologies. On the one hand, we were able to see how education can work even in such a situation. On the other hand, we also witnessed the lack in skills needed to deliver high quality digital lectures.
Under these circumstances, we are today living in a world where teaching and learning are strongly influenced by technologies. For tomorrow, digital education can no longer be neglected. We must build upon these new circumstances to improve education as much as possible.
For this Special Issue, we are seeking contributions addressing the following research questions, but the list is by no means exhaustive:
– What is the influence of digital technologies on education?
– What are the future trends of innovative technologies in education?
– What are examples of how innovative technologies can be used in education?
– How can digital technologies contribute to high quality education?

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2022.

[publication] University Innovation Report 2021 #tugraz #innovation

Ein Teil der Digitalisierungsstrategie der TU Graz ist auch, dass wir Innovationen aus der Forschung an der TU Graz selbst erproben und etablieren wollen. Das ist kein leichtes Unterfangen, denn der Weg von einem Prototypen zu einem flächendeckenden Service ist durchaus lange. Dennoch haben wir es versucht und über einen TEL-Marketplace realisiert. Das alles wurde nun zusammengefasst im „University Innovation Report“ 🙂

Zusammenfassung:
Der University Innovation Report ist der Wegweiser, um schnell erste Informationen einzuholen, direkt zu den digitalen Innovationen aus Lehre, Verwaltung und Forschung der TU Graz zu gelangen und mit den Methoden und Events des Marketplace die Universität von morgen mitzugestalten.

Mit diesem Beitrag dürfen wir uns in die Weihnachtspause 2021 verabschieden und wünschen allen ein ruhiges, entspannedes Weihnachtsfest und einen guten Rutsch ins Jahr 2022. Viel Gesundheit im nächsten Jahr und wir freuen uns, wenn wir auch 2022 einen kleinen Teil dazu beitragen können, dass sich die digitale Lehre an den Hochschulen weiterentwickelt.

[publication] «Das Postulat OER in der Hochschullandschaft verankern» Panel-Diskussion #OER #OpenEducation #OEAA

Im Rahmen der OER-Konferenz hatten wir eine Panel-Diskussion zu „«Das Postulat OER in der Hochschullandschaft verankern»“ abgehalten. Das wurde nun verschriftlicht und ist im Tagungsband:

Die Tagung «Lehrentwicklung by Openness – OER im Hochschulkontext» markiert gleichzeitig den Abschluss eines Projekts, das von der Hochschule Luzern und der Pädagogischen Hochschule Luzern gemeinsam 2019 gestartet und von swissuniversities mitfinanziert wurde und OER-Fragen im Schweizer Hochschulwesen aufgreift. Die Tagung bietet, wie bereits die Vorgängertagung im Jahr 2019, eine Möglichkeit des Austauschs und der Vernetzung von interessierten Personen. Damit wird auch ein Projektziel verfolgt, nämlich einen Beitrag zur Verankerung des Diskurses in der Schweiz zu leisten, es wirft aber auch die Frage auf, welche Austauschgefässe und Treffpunkte künftig bleiben. Und: Wer trifft sich ? Wie kommt das Anliegen voran? Wir haben für die Diskussion dieser Fragen drei Personen eingeladen, welche in unterschiedlicher Art mit dem Themenfeld OER verbunden sind und damit auch unterschiedliche Perspektiven einbringen. Ihre Eingangsstatements präsentieren je einige ausgewählte Überlegungen, daran anschliessend fassen wir die Diskussion zusammen.

[publication] Change of IT equipment and communication applications used by first-semester students from 2011 to 2020 and possible effects of the COVID-19 pandemic: Analysis of a long-term #tugraz #research #edil21

Our contribuation to this year ED-Media 2021 conference about „Change of IT equipment and communication applications used by first-semester students from 2011 to 2020 and possible effects of the COVID-19 pandemic: Analysis of a long-term“ got published. The slides are already here online.

Abstract:
The technical equipment of first-year students and their preferred communication applications are changing. This paper presents the two latest, unpublished surveys of first-year students at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) from 2019 (N=824) and 2020 (N=955) and compares the results concerning devices and applications with the results of the surveys conducted since 2011. The analysis shows that laptops, desktop computers and smartphones are among the most important and widespread multifunctional devices, while the MP3 player in particular or the social media application Facebook have lost most of their former importance. The increasing importance of photo-based social media applications, first and foremost Instagram, is striking. If comparing the data from 2019 to those from 2020, the first academic year start that took place within the COVID-19 pandemic, the same applies to the use of Facebook and Facebook Messenger, which now only have the same minor significance as Telegram, Signal, Skype, or others. Concerning effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the equipment and communication tools used, the authors see a major impact on the prevalence of portable powerpacks.
