[publication] Bildung im digitalen Zeitalter #nbb18 #tugraz

Es freut mich, dass ich bereits zum zweiten Mal am nationalen Bildungsbericht mitwirken durfte und meine Expertise im Bereich Digitalisierung der Hochschule, informatische Grundbildung, digitale Kompetenzen, Learning Analytics, Maker Education und Robotics einbringen konnte. Auch das Theme LehrerInnenbildung liegt mir natürlich sehr am Herzen. Also zusammen mit meinen Co-AutorInnen ist ein wohl sehr umfassender Beitrag entstanden, der lesenswert ist 🙂

Zusammenfassung:

Dieser Beitrag widmet sich der Frage, wie sich Bildung unter den Bedingungen der Digitalität verändert. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf der Leitfrage, welche Kompetenzen Schüler/innen im Laufe ihrer Schulbildung erwerben sollen, um in einer Gesellschaft, die sich unter dem Einfluss von Prozessen der Digitalisierung kontinuierlich verändert, selbstbestimmt mündig agieren und diese aktiv mitgestalten zu können. Damit verbunden sind Fragen der (Neu-)Organisation des Unterrichts mit Blick auf den Fächerkanon, den Einsatz digitaler Medien, das Lernen mit und über digitale Medien im Unterricht und Fragen der Steuerung von Projekten zur Schulentwicklung.

[publication] Inverse Blended Learning – a didactical concept for MOOCs and its positive effects on dropout-rates #mooc #imoox

We are very happy to announce that our chapter on „Inverse Blended Learning – a didactical concept for MOOCs and its positive effects on dropout-rates“ is published 🙂

Abstract:

Massive Open Online Courses, shortly MOOS, are one important trend of technology-enhanced learning of the last years. In this contribution we introduce a new didactical approach that we call „inverse blended learning“ (IBL). Whereas „blended learning“ is the enrichment of traditional learning settings through online inputs or phases, the IBL approach aims to enhance a pure online course with additional offline meetings for exchange and practising. Within two case studies the concept was tested and evaluated. The research study points out that the typical high dropout rate for MOOCs decreased arbitrarily. Therefore we recommend introducing the didactical approach of inverse blended learning in future MOOCs, if applicable.

[publication] PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17 #tugraz #research

It’s a great pleasure that our research about „PDM Field Study in Collaborative Engineering Education – Results from 2016/17“ got published in the International Journal of Online and Biomedical Engineering (iJOE).

Abstract:

This work describes the research activities performed in the field of engineering education at Austrian Federal Colleges of Engineering (HTL) in collaboration with both Graz and Vienna Universities of Technology. To support the collaboration process in engineering education, a Product Data Management (PDM) system was introduced to several Austrian HTLs. In the academic year 2016/17, a field study was begun and that will continue in 2017/18 to determine how to enhance collaboration between students by using this kind of software and methods. This paper, which is continuing a paper presented at ICL2017 in Budapest presents the first results, obtained in the academic year 2016/17 of the survey and the impression of the lecturers regarding the level of collaboration within students’ design projects.

[publication] Learning Analytics – eine Einführung #LearningAnalytics #TUGraz

Ich durfte in der Zeitschrift „Bildung und Beruf“ eine kurze Einführung zu Learning Analytics geben – hier der Beitrag.

Zusammenfassung:

Learning Analytics ist ein sehr junges Forschungsgebiet aus dem Bereich der Bildungsinformatik und versucht durch das Sammeln und Gegenüberstellen von Daten Unterstützung im Lernprozess zu geben. Dieser Beitrag gibt eine Einführung und stellt die wesentlichen Aspekte, kritischen Punkte, Ziele und Methoden vor. Weiters soll dabei ein Bezug zur berufsbildenden Schulpraxis geschaffen werden.

[publication] Learning Analytics Challenges to Overcome in Higher Education Institutions #LearningAnalytics #tugraz #research

Our chapter on „Learning Analytics Challenges to Overcome in Higher Education Institutions“ got published in the book „Utilizing Learning Analytics to Support Study Success

Abstract:

While a large number of scientific publications explain the development of prototypes or the implementation of case studies in detail, descriptions of the challenges and proper solutions when implementing learning analytics initiatives are rare. In this chapter, we provide a practical tool that can be used to identify risks and challenges that arise when implementing learning analytics (LA) initiatives and discuss how to approach these to find acceptable solutions. In this way, implementers are given the opportunity to handle challenges early on and avoid being surprised at a critical moment in the project, which will save time, resources, and effort. We are aware that all aspects needed to successfully carry out learning analytics initiatives are co-dependent. Nonetheless, we identified and categorized the criteria necessary for implementing successful learning analytics initiatives. We conclude this chapter with an overview of the challenges faced and possible approaches that can be taken to facilitate the successful implementation of learning analytics.

[publication] Open Educational Resources – eine Notwendigkeit für die digital gestützte Hochschullehre #fnma #publication #OER

Zusammen mit Sandra Schön hab ich einen weiteren Beitrag zu Open Educational Resources geschrieben und zwar die Zusammenfassung des Vortrages im Rahmen der 1. Online-Tagung der VPH 2018.

Kurzfassung:

In diesem Kurzbeitrag wird dargestellt, warum freie Bildungsressourcen für die Hochschule von morgen eine Notwendigkeit darstellen. Nach einer Begriffsdefinition werden Argumente für die Stärkung von OER vorgestellt. Darüberhinaus kann gezeigt werden, dass bereits auf viele existierende Ressourcen zugegriffen werden kann bzw. wie diese selbst genutzt werden können.
