ZML Didaktik / Innovative Learning Scenarios

Archive for the ‘Reflexion’ Category

In the Content Strategy program my students create a portfolio, write approximately once a month a post and share it openly in the web. Provoked by discussions with my students, especially with the COS17 students, I want to make my intentions why reflect openly clearer. Read the rest of this entry »

In the weeks after my last post I continued reading Schön’s books „Reflective Practitioner“ (1) and “Educating the Reflective Practitioner” (2). This week we will discuss his ideas in the ZML Journal Club and I want to get a better understanding of what I have read.

Reading Schön’s book “Reflective Practitioner” is a great pleasure for me. In this post I will focus on the preface and Part I: Professional Knowledge and Reflection-in-Action (p. 3-69) Read the rest of this entry »

In week 2 in the Learning with MOOCs for professional development MOOC we were asked to assess a MOOC to know if this MOOC is right for me. As I’m facilitator of week 1 in the AtLETyC MOOC I decided to choose this MOOC for the task. (I built this MOOC in collaboration with the project team as well)

This week is a rather hard one for myself. The semester has started now, face-to-face and virtual student groups on slack, twitter, moodle, canvas, zoom, hangout and in the classroom (!) are fighting for my attention. I’m preparing a presentation which I have to deliver in about 5 hours … and I’m learning in two MOOCs. So – what better to do than to carry out an activity in the bizmooc Learning with MOOCs for professional development.

Open matters for me because (1) I’m socialized in this way, (2) I love to share and learn from and with others. Until now I’m not sure how much I need (3) OER for open exchange and sharing but I hope to develop (4) my strategy during the #openedMOOC.

Nearly a year has passed since my last post about MOOCs in February 2016.

I have not been lazy in this year and I haven’t stopped thinking about MOOCs. For example:

  • In May 2016 together with Jenny Mackness I presented our work about Visualising structure and agency in a MOOC using the Footprints of Emergence framework at the tenth International Conference on Networked Learning in Lancaster.
  • I was and still am involved in two European MOOC projects led by my university: the AtLETyc project and the BizMOOC project.
  • In September, during the partner meeting of the AtLETyc project we decided spontaneously to create a small MOOC within a month to provide the partners with the MOOC experience on the one hand and to let them work on content for MOOCs on the other hand. If you are interested take a look at the AtLETyc MOOC camp.
  • And I did some really great MOOC learning in Matt Silady’s Comics: Art in Relationship MOOC. Because drawing Comics takes a lot of time I have spent less time writing about MOOCs ….

In the future my dealing with MOOCs will get more intensive as we will build one MOOC for athletes with useful knowledge for them with respect to the time after their sports career and another MOOC to provide business key competences to whoever may relate to.

In the BizMOOC project a common body of knowledge was collected which resulted in 14 discussion papers about MOOCS and online education, MOOCs initiatives, MOOC types, MOOC quality and MOOC pedagogy, drivers behind MOOCs, recognition of learning in MOOCs, business models for MOOCs, MOOCs and human resources, and useful online material for the BizMOOC.

Furthermore in the BizMOOC project we investigated needs and gaps with respect to business people, people in Higher Education and the society as a whole. I find the society survey on MOOCs very interesting. And I’m a little bit sad that according to this report face-to-face rather than online courses are still preferred by participants. There are so many amazing online courses out there in the web!

At the upcoming partner meeting in Cardiff this week we will work on the concepts for the three Pilot MOOCs focusing on life-long learning, business key competences and innovation & creativity. We will create a cMOOC, an xMOOC and a Hybrid-MOOC. I’m looking forward to our training session with Martin Weller, whom I got to now at the #change11 MOOC.
