[publication] Introduction to ‘The Future of Learning’ #education #book #chapter

I manged the section “Future of Learning” for the book Learning with Technologies and Technologies in Learning:

This section deals with the “future of learning” and asked for contributions dealing with meta-studies ore forecasts. This is not a simple task because we all know from the pandemic that changes are unpredictable sometimes. Anyway, we are very happy that seven groups of researchers out of more than 23 proposals tried to give us insights to their research. Those 7 publications deal with different topics—meta studies, Social Interaction and communication, Open Educational Resources, Augmented and Virtual Reality.

[mooc] Chefs in future integrated health care #imoox #medunigraz

It’s a pleasure to announce the start of the MOOC “Chefs in future integrated health care” at our platform iMooX.at

Course information:
The promotion of active and healthy ageing throughout the „whole life course“ represents an essential objective of today’s society. There is growing recognition that robust health promotion strategies are needed to prevent and postpone age-related diseases, which in turn can affect the functionality and independent living. Within this context, a healthy, tasty and adequate needs-based diet is an effective strategy to combat or delay malnutrition, sarcopenia and frailty, thus improving people’s quality of life and preventing older adults from morbidity and disability. The quality, taste and composition of food not only influence nutritional intake and consumption, but also the quality of life of patients and elderly people itself. Especially in health and social care, factors such as the age of the individual person, disease-related conditions, as well as the quality, nutritional value and taste of food served should be given great consideration to ensure adequate nutrition for patients. Consequently, the meals offered ought to satisfy quality standards as well as provide individual nutritional requirements, taking food preferences and individual problems with food intake into account.
Due to the increasing relevance of the profession of chefs in this context and especially for the future nutrition care team in the setting of social and health care (e.g. hospitals, nursing homes, home care), the aim is to close current qualification gaps of this professional occupation through a pilot course and the present MOOC.

As usual all courses at iMooX.at are for free – so feel welcome to register here: [starting page of the course]

[presentation] www – was wirkt weiter? Hochschule virtuell #covid19 #future

Im Rahmen einer internen Weiterbildung an der PH Steiermark habe ich versucht ein wenig aus der einjährigen Erfahrung in der digitalen Lehre eine Bilanz zu ziehen. Damit sollte auch ein Anstoß gegeben werden, darüber nachzudenken, wie sich vielleicht die Hochschullehre auch verändern wird. Hier sind die zugehörigen Folien:

Horizon Report 2021 – Teaching and Learning Edition #horizonreport #edtech #educationaltechnology

Jedes Jahr gibt uns der Horizon Report eine Idee was die derzeigen Trends und Entwicklungen im Berich Educational Technology weltweit sein. Aufgrund der CoVid19-Pandemie haben sich nun doch auch deutliche Änderungen ergeben oder es sind gänzlich neue Punkte aufgetreten, wie z. B das Thema der hybriden Lehre.

Kurzum ich kann nur empfehlen den Bericht anzusehen, aber wer gleich wissen möchte was die Key-Trends sind, hier sind diese einmal gelistet:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Blended and Hybrid Course Models
  • Learning Analytics
  • Microcredentialing
  • Open Educational Resources (OER)
  • Quality Online Learning

Besonders freut uns auch, dass auf S. 26 explizit auf das österreichisches Projekt Open Education Austria Advanced verwiesen wird:

Book Project: Learning with Technologies in Learning #cfp #elearning #research #springer

There is a new book project we would like to invite interested authors named “Learning with Technologies in Learning

In six sections (see sections’ calls for chapters), this edited volume aims to contribute to the discussion about how to agree upon standards to design and organize learning with technologies, how to streamline future developments using online delivery, multimedia content as well as machine learning in educational settings in higher education and respective institutions, and how to put respective measures for quality assurance and validation processes into practice. This work will present a rich resource for contemporary and future design considerations in technology supported higher education.

We plan to publish this book in the first half of 2022 in Springer publishing house (Cham). At this point, we are in negotiations about the book with the publisher and expect a final decision by and contract signing with Springer by mid-April.

[study] AHEAD – Internationales Horizon-Scanning: Trendanalyse zu einer Hochschullandschaft in 2030 #tugraz

Es freut uns, dass die Studie zu “AHEAD – Internationales Horizon-Scanning: Trendanalyse zu einer Hochschullandschaft in 2030” nun öffentlich zugänglich ist. Wir haben über ein Jahr mit dem internationalen Konsortiuum arbeiten dürfen (AHEAD-Webseite) und freuen uns über das Ergebnis:

Das Projekt „(A) Higher Education Digital (AHEAD) – Internationales Horizon-Scanning / Trendanaly- se zur digitalen Hochschulbildung“ hat von Februar 2018 bis Januar 2019 eine systematische Ana- lyse der aktuellen Trends und Anforderungen in den Bereichen Wissens- und Kompetenzanforde- rungen unternommen und die neuesten Entwicklungen in der Lerntheorie, Didaktik sowie in der digitalen Bildungstechnologie vor dem Hintergrund einer (zunehmend) digitalisierten Hochschulbil- dung untersucht. Die Analyse bildete die Grundlage für ein Horizon-Scanning für die Hochschulbil- dung im Jahr 2030, das Zukunftsszenarien entwickelt, die sich soziale und digitale Innovationen zunutze machen, um künftige Anforderungen an das Hochschulwesen erfüllen zu können. Die Studie wurde im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) vom FiBS Forschungsinstitut für Bildungs- und Sozialökonomie zusammen mit dem Institut für Hochschul- entwicklung (HIS-HE) durchgeführt.
