[mooc] Collaboration and Cocreation for Engineers #imoox #tuwien #entrepreneurspirit #creativeconfidence #collabcocreate #leadership #leadershipdevelopment #collaboration #cocreation #jjerlich

Seit gestern ist auf iMooX.at der MOOC „Collaboration and Cocreation for Engineers“ freigeschalten und aktiv. Allein die Beschreibung klingt schon unglaublich spannend:

Kooperation und Co-Creation sind für alle Arten von Organisationen eine Notwendigkeit geworden. Als Ingenieur arbeitet man nie allein. Die Fähigkeit, verschiedene Parteien zusammenzubringen, um gemeinsam ein für beide Seiten wertvolles Ergebnis zu erzielen, kann nicht theoretisch erlernt werden. Dieser Kurs gibt den Teilnehmern die Möglichkeit, ihre Ideen auf die Werkbank zu legen und sie gemeinsam zu entwickeln.
Bitte beachten Sie, dass dies kein „normaler“ Kurs ist, bei dem Sie Informationen konsumieren und herunterladen. In diesem Kurs wendest Du deine Teamfähigkeit in selbstorganisierter Weise an. Der Kurs ist ein Erlebnis. Es gibt kein Buch, aus dem man dies lernen kann. Die Erfahrung ist für jede Person anders und einzigartig, wobei das Geben von Feedback an andere und das Reflektieren über die eigene Arbeitsweise Teil Deiner täglichen Arbeitsschritte werden.
Deine Idee ist zu groß, um sie allein zu verwirklichen? Ja, natürlich ist sie das. Dieser Kurs ist deine Chance, deiner Idee ein Fundament zu geben, das dich inspiriert, aktiv zu werden und sie zu verwirklichen.
Jutta hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Ideen zu unterstützen, geboren zu werden, damit sie eine Chance haben, es über deine Gedanken hinaus in die Welt zu schaffen. Es geht darum, unsere Ideen ernst zu nehmen und sie im Team mit anderen Wirklichkeit werden zu lassen. Diese Herausforderung alleine zu lösen, ist nicht nur aufgrund der Komplexität einfach unmöglich, sondern macht einfach keinen Spaß. 

Wie immer ist die Teilnahme kostenlos: [Link zur Anmeldeseite]

[publication] PDM field study and evaluation in collaborative engineering education #research

At this year ICL 2017 conference in Budapest, Hungary we did a publication on „PDM field study and evaluation in collaborative engineering education„. Andreas did the presentation and the introduction to his PhD-work.

Abstract:

Collaboration in general but especially between students of Austrian Federal Secondary Colleges of Engineering (HTL) is becoming more and more important. Therefore, the joint diploma thesis has been introduced into the cur- riculum. Furthermore, joint student projects have become a crucial topic within the subject of mechanical engineering design. Because of the worldwide activi- ties of most companies, being able to collaborate within a huge team is seen as an essential for future jobs. To support the collaboration process in engineering education, a product data management (PDM) system was introduced to several Austrian HTLs within projects carried out in the Sparkling Science program of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research. In the academic year 2016/17 a field study was started to figure out how to enhance collaboration be- tween students by using this kind of software and methods. The outcome of this study will be to find out about the level of collaboration within students’ design projects.

[publication] Cooperative Face-to-Face Learning with Connected Mobile Devices: The Future of Classroom Learning? #tugraz #research

Our chapter about „Cooperative Face-to-Face Learning with Connected Mobile Devices: The Future of Classroom Learning?“ got published as chapter of the book Mobile, Ubiquitous, and Pervasive Learning.

Abstract:

Communication and collaboration among peers influence learning outcomes in a positive way. Therefore our research work focuses on enhancing face-to-face group learning with the usage of mobile devices by developing a learning game for iPhone/iPad devices called MatheBingo. The app allows up to four learners to connect to each other through their mobile devices and learn together in a face-to-face setting. An initial evaluation in this field of research indicates the usefulness of such activities and how they uniquely motivate children to learn. It can be summarized that the connection of mobile devices is an important step towards the future of face-to-face classroom learning.

[publication] Collaborative Learning Through Drawing on iPads #iPad #research

Our publication at this year ED-Media 2015 conference „Collaborative Learning Through Drawing on iPads“ is now online available.

Abstract:

Teamwork and collaboration skills are very important for improving learning efficiency and experience. Therefore an innovative iPad app, called Teamsketch, was developed to provide a collaborative sketch environment for devices with which pupils can simultaneously draw one sketch together. Up to four pupils can take part in a session and train collaboration just by drawing a sketch. First of all different features and issues of state-of-the- art applications were evaluated. Afterwards a prototype from scratch using Apple’s new programming language Swift has been implemented. Additionally, a web service, a web interface and also a web site were programmed in order to provide an evaluation tool for teachers. Furthermore, pupils can upload and download their drawn sketches and profile pictures. A first field test was carried out at the primary school Graz-Hirten. This test showed the potential of the app for training and evaluating team and collaboration skills.
