  • StructuresPotential design patternsExamplesHow to go forward with thisQuestions and discussions at any point
  • After photosAsk for opinions and ideas on open and online – think for a moment then some to call out or hands upCapture on paper – on large flip chart/whiteboard if there’s one in the room
  • Open learning: refers toan approach to learning focused on the learner and their role in determining their own learning: eg in timing, pacing location, selection of resources, support/guidance, assessment …Open education is about freeing up learning opportunities to those who have the capacity to benefit from them and about eliminating unwarranted barriers to entry: culture, accessOpen educational resources: (OER) are teaching and learning materials freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor or student. OERs are teaching, learning or research materials that are in the public domain or released with an intellectual property license that allows for free use, adaptation, and distribution.Networked learning: learning in which information and communication technology is used to promote connections: between one learner and other learners, between learners and tutors; between a learning community and its learning resourcesTEL: TEL focuses on the technological support of any pedagogical approach that utilizes technology and the support of any learning activity through technologyOnline learning: An online learning environment: is one that goes beyond the replication of learning events that have traditionally occurred in the classroom and are now made available through the internet. It provides for different ways of learning and the construction of a potentially richer learning environment.An online learning environment can include any or all of a number of aspects ranging from administration details relevant to the class to learning experiences mediated through interactive multimedia to a total course delivered via the internet. An online learning environment can supplement or complement a traditional face-to-face learning environment or it may provide a complete learning package that requires little face-to-face contact.Mobile learning: distinct in its focus on learning across contexts and learning with mobile devices. One definition of mobile learning is: Any sort of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location, or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies.[1] In other words mobile learning decreases limitation of learning location with the mobility of general portable devicesincluding handheld computers, MP3 players, notebooks and mobile phoneDistance education: based on a physical separation of the learner from the instructor, with the instructor delivering teaching, to students who are not physically present in a traditional educational setting such as a classroom. It has been described as "a process to create and provide access to learning when the source of information and the learners are separated by time and distance, or both.Blended learning: an approach that blends classroom face to face learning experiences with technology-mediated learning experiences in both integrated and distributed modelsHybrid models: blend face-to-face interaction such as in-class discussions, active group work, and live lectures with typically web-based educational technologies such as online course cartridges, assignments, discussion boards, and other web-assisted learning tools.[1] The degree to which the design of hybrid courses utilize traditional classroom and online learning environments varies, being largely dependent on the subject matter and overall nature of a course = blended learning
  • teacher controlphilosophical stanceteacher perceptions of learner needslearner ability to self-regulate, to self-directcurriculumorganisational requirements and/or PRSBs
  • Affordances – what do these tools allow us to do, what kind of learning do they enable, facilitate or support?How do they support the leaner’s goals and needs, the content, the level of assessment, meeting the assessment requirements?
  • Some examplesTechnologies as media for accessing and studying learning materialAs media for learning through enquiry – eg in online case studiesAs media for communication and collaboration – wikis, blogs, virtual worldsAs media for learning through construction – eg knowledge construction environmentsTechnologies for learners’ assessment – quizzes, tests and e-portfoliosTechnologies for digital and multimedia literacy – video editing and annotation, image processing, digital narratives
  • Virtual Field trip for field trip preparation – what to expect, routines, skills, sources and documenting evidence (Sydney)Dentistry – sharing video of cases, treatments and processes for discussion and critique – Kings College LondonE-portfolios- to document learning journey, present achievements in variety of formats eg video, report – can be structured around Los - SalfordLab safety training – simulations, online tutorials, quizzes - BirminghamAudio feedback – can be used on documents, to personalise feedback, give generic feedback to group eg podcasts Salford, Built environment
  • Create timeCreate moneyCreate opportunityOffer resilience in uncertain times
  • Conceptual and procedural levels in a pedagogical frameworkfeed into the educational designThis all takes time so in our activity today we will have to presume this activity has occurred and there is clarity to proceed among the team
  • Use for the Salmon stage 1 or 2 task: what ideas can you come up with?
  • A simple model

    9. 9. theenvironment
    10. 10. Learning is transformed by• Materials that fit learning into living• Practice of authentic tasks in authentic contexts• TEL support for learning away from campus• Virtual environments for collaboration, demonstration, peer review• IBL, case-based and PBL• Recording and making learning visible (e-portfolio)• Feedback/assessment that is timely, reviewed, clarifies expectations (eg audio feedback)
    11. 11. Curriculum is transformed by• Focusing on learning experience holistically• Assumption of open content• Trusted information with multiple representations• Transparent processes with shared artefacts, collaborative tools• Streamlined administration systems• Focus on educational conversations …• .. captured and reflected on in meaningful ways• QA/QE oriented on negotiated iterative enhancement
