Aufgrund meines Engagements im postgradualen Masterlehrgang Public Communication lese ich gerade Stefan Münkers Buch: Emergenz digitaler Öffentlichkeiten: Die Sozialen Medien im Web 2.0 (2009). Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
In Autumn 2013 we started to work on our own MOOC – in this post I want to explain why we decided to create a MOOC, how it will look like and what our objectives are. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
Cleaning up by blog I stumbled upon a post of summer 2012 which I didn’t finish – and which remains interesting to me until today. This post describes one discussion during the BeTreat workshop of Etienne and Bev Wenger. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
EMOOCs2014 was a great conference and EPFL in Lausanne a suitable place (two sunny days!) – and it’s fun how we love to meet each other in times of MOOCs.
My reflection on the conference is personal and restrained by my disability to be in four tracks at the same time … Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
A lot ist happening around the footprints
- Our online course about the footprints of emergence gave me interesting insights into the use of footprints by different learners. And new ideas how to use the footprints emerged!
- In January we develop a proposal for the Sparkling Science call where students of schools should work as scientists. Our idea in the project is that the students themselves should “translate” the template of the footprints into their world. It will be a very emergent process when 12 or 16 year old students work with the complex footprint template! Now let’s cross our finders that our submission will be successful.
- I finally finished the call for papers for our 13. E-Learning Day around evaluation of open learning scenarios and I’m very happy that the “parents” of the footprints Jenny Mackness and Roy Williams will give the keynote (the conference is in German but there will be English presentations as well).
- I have got a lot of footprints from online-courses, workshops, classes to look at and analyze in detail – and I’m looking forward to find time to immerse myself into it!
- And … in an interesting online meeting with Jenny and Roy we discussed where the footprints came from. I’m very curios to read more about the background of the footprints because until today I’m struggling with the understanding of some of the factors. I did a first mindmap and will add further information to it while our discussion goes on.

Finally I find the time to immerse myself in Dave Cormier’s MOOC about Rhizomatic Learning.
I’m especially interested into week one and how Dave acts to involve learners – because I’m preparing a MOOC by myself: MOOC: Competences for Global Collaboration – #cope14 and as one of the facilitators I want to reflect Dave’s approach.
In his introductory video Dave invites us learners to introduce ourselves via a blog, the facebook page, the Google+ page or as comment on the web page (these are the same virtual rooms we plan to use in #cope14) and to follow the twitter hashtag #rhizo14. He says that it is important for us to get to know a couple of people and that some people get to know me. This is task 1.
For advanced learners he introduces a challenge = task 2: we should cheat … which is only possible in hierarchies and if there exists only one answer. Cheating disrupts power structures.
Task 3 ist around the topic of the MOOC, we should describe how we see the rhizome in learning.
As learner I want to get connected so I will visit all the virtual meeting places and look around. I didn’t understand the task around cheating probably because cheating was really prohibited in my early learning experiences and I do not like to cheat. As teacher and trainer I try to create tasks were cheating doesn’t work and where it is legit to include the wisdom of others. So I will go and look around how others understood task 2 I will probably skip the Bonus task 3
