[presentation] OER an Hochschulen – Entwicklungen in Österreich #OER #Austria #OpenEducation

Open Educational Resources bzw. Open Education ist eines meiner großen Anliegen, da ich felsenfest davon überzeugt bin, dass man dadurch einerseits Bildung besser erreichbar machen kann und andererseits erst dann die Potentiale der Digitalisierung genutzt werden können. Daher versuchen wir das Thema national weiter zu verankern. Umso mehr freut es mich, dass man mich zur OER-KA Konferenz über „Freie Bildungsmaterialien in der Hochschullehre“ als Keynote-Speaker eingeladen hat um die österreichischen Entwicklungen aufzuzeigen. Hier einmal meine Folien:

Die wichtigsten Inhalte im Rahmen der Präsentation:

  • Empfehlungen für die Integration von Open Educational Resources an Hochschulen in Österreich [Link]
  • Konzept OER-Zertifizierung an österreichischen Hochschulen [Link]

[workshop] Making With Kids in Europe – To Foster Digital Literacy, to Make a Better World, and to Build a New Entrepreneurship Education #making #edmedia #InnovateLearning

At this year ED-Media conference in Amsterdam we start with a workshop on „Making With Kids in Europe – To Foster Digital Literacy, to Make a Better World, and to Build a New Entrepreneurship Education“ where we like to introduce to our activities.

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 the University of Technologies Graz (AT), about inspiring social innovation and educational projects at the Waag Society (NL) and about the European initiative DOIT, which sees making as a good base for an early entrepreneurship education. Participants will work with a set of tools and smaller maker projects. For example, they can program educational games in Scratch, build a dough piano (which will do music!) with a MaKeyMaKey set, or sew some “smart gloves”. Interactive discussions will be the base to develop own future implementations.

Find here the slides and workshop hand-outs at our partner’s website DoIT.

[publication] Lessons Learned when transferring Learning Analytics Interventions across Institutions #lak18 #research

Our publication at this year LAK18-conference about „Lessons Learned when transferring Learning Analytics Interventions across Institutions“ is now online available.

Abstract:

Learning Analytics is a promising research field, which is advancing quickly. Therefore, it finally impacts research, practice, policy, and decision making in the field of education. Nonetheless, there are still influencing obstacles when establishing Learning Analytics initiatives on higher education level. Besides the much discussed ethical and moral concerns, there is also the matter of data privacy. In 2015, the European collaboration project STELA started with the main goal to enhance the Successful Transition from secondary to higher Education by means of Learning Analytics. Together, the partner universities develop, test, and assess Learning Analytics approaches that focus on providing feedback to students. Some promising approaches are then shared between the partner universities. Therefore, the transferability of the Learning Analytics initiatives is of great significance. During the duration of our project, we found a variety of difficulties, we had to overcome to transfer one of those Learning Analytics initiatives, the Learning Tracker from one partner to the other. Despite, some of the difficulties can be categorized as small, all of them needed our attention and were time consuming. In this paper, we present the lessons learned while solving these obstacles.
