TELucation #tugraz #sammelmappe

Wir haben an der TU Graz ein neues Projekt gestartet – eine Sammelmappe mit allen wichtigen Infos für unsere Lehrenden rund um das Thema Technology Enhanced Learning. Wir wollen hiermit den Einstieg in die digtal gestützte Lehre erleichtern und unterstützen wo wir nur können. Als Teaser ist auch ein kleines Video entstanden, welches wir natürlich niemand vorenhalten wollen:

[publication] How to Foster Technology Enhanced Learning in Higher Education #tel #tugraz #research

Our book chapter on „How to Foster Technology-Enhanced Learning in Higher Education“ got published:

In this research work, we deal with the topic of the integration of Technology Enhanced Learning in Higher Education. Due to the worldwide debate on digitalization in all possible sectors, educational institutions are asking how they can deal with this change and how they can prepare for the future. At Graz University of Technology, a pre-project was started to define a policy, which should help to encourage the start of new projects with a special focus to education. A participatory approach was utilized with the idea that each university member (lecturers, researchers, administrators or students) could provide input. Different measurements across the fields of education, research, administration, and transformation were carried out, summarized and consolidated to provide a final policy. The outcome of this publication will focus on the description of the whole process as well as the summary of the most interesting aspects, which were used for the final policy. Furthermore, an outlook on how the digital policy will be implemented in the following years will be provided.

[publication] Influential factors for technology-enhanced learning: professionals’ views #tugraz #research

Our publication about „Influential factors for technology-enhanced learning: professionals’ views“ got published in the Journal of Research in Innovative Teaching &Learning.

Abstract:

Purpose
The literature includes several studies that define different critical success factors (CSF) which have to be considered to support the implementation of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) approaches. An analysis of such studies revealed that (1) regional differences seem to determine the CSF for TEL approaches, (2) certain CSF are relevant for TEL approaches in general, and (3) professionals in higher education determine which influential factors they consider when implementing TEL approaches. Thus, the question arises: in general, which influential factors do professionals in Austrian and German institutions of higher education actually consider when implementing TEL approaches?

Design/methodology/approach
The study is a quantitative research approach based on survey data.

Findings
The results show that certain influential factors seem to be generally important, such as the factors of respecting learning success or motivation. However, the outcome of the study also indicated that different moderating variables like experiences and personal relevance affect the professionals’ choices.

Originality/value
The originality and value are in the approach to identify generally important influential factors for the implementation of TEL approaches in Austrian and German institutions of higher education.

[interview] “Never before have we had such power in our pockets”

A couple of days ago I was asked if I can give an interview about our activities and my personal opinion about the future of educational technology. The final text with the promising title „Never before have we had such power in our pockets” can be read right here.
Hopefully, it is an interest read, if you have any comment I am happy to answer it 🙂

[video] Mehrwerte durch digitale Medien #tugraz

Im Rahmen des internen Digitalisierungsprozesses für die Hochschule, durfte ich eine Video erstellen und meine Gedanken zum Thema präsentieren. Einmal schauen, wie sehr es der TU Graz hilft, die nächsten Schritte zu unternehmen

Damit darf ich allen meinen Leserinnen und Lesern einen schönes & besinnliches Weihnachtsfest 2017 und auch einen guten Rutsch wünschen. Wir lesen uns dann hoffentlich gesund und munter wieder im Jahr 2018 🙂
