[webinar] Higher Education OER Policies: Examples from institutional to European level #OER #tugraz #UNITE!

I am very happy to announce our webinar on “Higher Education OER Policies: Examples from institutional to European level” within the UNITE! alliance. Aalto University will be the host and for sure you can get interesting informations on OER from the perspective of Austria:

Open Educational Resources (OER) movement is rooted in accessible high-quality education and enables systematic change in teaching and learning content (https://oercommons.org/about). In this webinar, the topic of Open Educational Resources will be addressed from different strategic perspectives in higher education: Our experts will therefore address the institutional level, a country level and at the level of a European university alliance.

[publication] Exploring the Utilization of Online Resources and Experiences in Language Learning: A Study of Indonesian Students Learning German as a Foreign Language #languagelearning #TEL

Our research about “Exploring the Utilization of Online Resources and Experiences in Language Learning: A Study of Indonesian Students Learning German as a Foreign Language” is now online available.

Abstract: This study examines the frequency of online resource utilization among German language students at Universitas Negeri Malang (Indonesia) who are at the B1 level. The aim of the research is to investigate the usage of websites and applications during German language studies. Standardized questions were administered to a sample of 54 students to gather information regarding their engagement with online resources throughout their coursework. Additionally, feedback on selected online resources was collected and assessed. The findings reveal that Indonesian students demonstrate a preference for using videos featuring interviews with native German speakers, alongside the inclusion of supportive subtitles to enhance comprehension. However, a significant challenge arises due to the lack of materials specifically tailored for Indonesian learners, which also clearly indicate the intended language proficiency level.

[imoox, GADI] Woche 7: Homo Deus & IT Security #gadi23 #imoox

Der MOOC “Gesellschaftliche Aspekte der Informationstechnologie” auf iMooX geht nun in die siebte Woche. Diesesmal sind die Expertin Maria Eichlseder, die Experten Stefan More und Michael Pfeiffer und ich selbst an der Reihe. Das Thema IT-Security. Ich denke spannend genug um mitzumachen.

Darüberhinaus wage ich mich selbst einmal an eine Buchbesprechung, nachdem ich letztes Jahr den Bestseller Homo Deus gelesen habe, denke ich, dass es spannend ist vielleicht einmal diese Gedanken aufzugreifen und zu reflektieren.

Also unbedingt vorbei schauen und mitdiskutieren – der Einstieg in den MOOC ist jederzeit noch möglich.

[publication] Makification – Bridging the Gap between Formal and Maker Education #MakerEducation #making #research

Our publication titled “Makification – Bridging the Gap between Formal and Maker Education” was presented at EDMedia and Innovative Learning 2023 conference and got published right now.

Abstract: To achieve appropriate education for the future, we propose a gradual process of makification in which characteristic elements of the maker movement are incorporated into formal educational activities. Using the existing literature, we deduce the need for a shift from teacher-centered to student-centered learning while integrating essential 21st century skills into the rigid framework of formal education through makification
