[publication] Open Tools and Methods to Support the Development of MOOCs A Collection of How-tos, Monster Assignment and Kits #emoocs21 #mooc #imoox

Our reserach about „Open Tools and Methods to Support the Development of MOOCs A Collection of How-tos, Monster Assignment and Kits“ got published in this year EMOOCS 2021 conference proceeding.

Abstract:
There are a plethora of ways to guide and support people to learn about MOOC (massive open online course) development, from their first inter- est, sourcing supportive resources, methods and tools to better aid their understanding of the concepts and pedagogical approaches of MOOC design, to becoming a MOOC developer. This contribution highlights tools and methods that are openly available and re-usable under Creative Commons licenses. Our collection builds upon the experiences from three MOOC development and hosting teams with joint experiences of several hundred MOOCs (University of Applied Sciences in Lübeck, Graz Univer- sity of Technology, University of Glasgow) in three European countries, which are Germany, Austria and the UK. The contribution recommends and shares experiences with short articles and poster for first information sharing a Monster MOOC assignment for beginners, a MOOC canvas for first sketches, the MOOC design kit for details of instructional design and a MOOC for MOOC makers and a MOOC map as introduction into a certain MOOC platform.

[publication] Learning Design for Children and Youth in Makerspaces: Methodical-Didactical Variations of Maker Education Activities Concerning Learner’s Interest, Learning with Others and Task Description #makereducation #tugraz

Our publication about „Learning Design for Children and Youth in Makerspaces: Methodical-Didactical Variations of Maker Education Activities Concerning Learner’s Interest, Learning with Others and Task Description“ as part of the International Seminar on Language, Education, and Culture (ISoLEC 2021) got published.

Abstract:
For some years now, „maker education“ has been conquering the world, and with extensive literature describing projects and activities as well as their characteristics and effects. Many authors have described principles of maker education such as working on a product and do-it-yourself activities. However, the literature on how to develop and design a maker activity with children is still limited. This would be of interest to and inform the systematic training of teachers and maker educators. In this paper we propose an overview of the methodological-didactical variations in maker education base on the systematic analysis of the original principles of adults learning in makerspaces to extrapolate the principles for working with children in maker education. Therefore, this paper offers a collection of methodological-didactical variations concerning three aspects, namely (a) the inclusion of the learner’s own interests, (b) learning from and with others, and (c) the kinds of task available at hand. In this way it is intended to offer practitioners support for the design and development of their own maker education programs.

[keynote] Digitale Souveränität durch offene Bildung und OER – Chance und Verantwortung der Hochschulen #campusinnovation #OER #tugraz

Wir wurden letztes Jahr gefragt ob wir für die Campus Innovation Konferenz 2021 eine Keynote halten wollen, rund um Digitale Souveränität und die Rolle von OER. Als besondere Herausforderung wünscht man sich, dass Sandra und ich dies gemeinsam machen sollen. Wir haben es probiert und hoffen auch, dass es gut angekommen ist – hier gibt es nachträglich noch die Vortragsfolien:

[publication] Effects of Remote Learning on Practitioner Integration #tugraz #research #edil21

Our contribuation to this year ED-Media 2021 conference about „Effects of Remote Learning on Practitioner Integration“ got published. The slides are already here online.

Abstract:
The widespread inclusion of experts and practitioners in educational settings to teach and collaboratively learn can help alleviate a multitude of systemic problems. A new, inclusive path to teach youth the skills needed to utilise the problem solving approach named computational thinking is explored in this case study. During 2020 remote learning became ubiquitous and after a successful face to face workshop the consequences of a virtual environment were evaluated. This publication answers three questions based on an action research approach: What effect has remote learning on practitioner integration? What learning outcomes does a flipped classroom approach lead to? What lessons can be learned for a post-social-distancing world? Data was gathered during an expert driven virtual workshop, in an Austrian technical school with predominantly male students aged 17 to 18 (K-12). Analysis revealed the benefits of remote expert integration as relatively little overhead can establish practical knowledge and differentiated perspectives in an almost uninterrupted virtual workflow. The integration of practitioners should be made possible within virtual environments to minimise distraction and overhead if applicable. Despite its clear benefits a blended environment with additional face to face settings led to more interaction and excitement from the learners. Easy access to experts and practitioners is key to offer young people the tools necessary to face the challenges of the future.
