Sampson 1 June 2014 Advanced Digital Systems and Services for Education and Learning (ASK) 8/58 Title: Inquiry-based Teaching Description: This strategy is often contrasted with more traditional expository methods and reflects the constructivist model of learning, often referred to as active learning, so strongly held among science educators today. Pedagogical Model: Inquiry- based Teaching Source: PATHWAY Project (http://www.pathway- project.eu/) Open LD Templates Examples PHASE 1: QUESTION – Investigation of scientifically oriented questions PHASE 2: EVIDENCE – Give priority to evidence PHASE 3: ANALYSE - Analyse evidence PHASE 4: EXPLAIN - Formulate explanations PHASE 5: CONNECT - Connect explanations PHASE 6: COMMUNICATE - Communicate and Justify PHASE 7: REFLECT – Reflect on the inquiry process POSE A SCIENTIFICALLY ORIENTED QUESTION COLLECT EVIDENCE AND DATA DECIDE THE EVIDENCES’ ANALYSIS DECIDE EXPLANATIONS’ FORMULATION CONNECT RESOURCES TO SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE CHOOSE HOW TO COMMUNICATE STRUCTURE REFLECTION ON THE INQUIRY PROCESS

Sampson 1 June 2014 Advanced Digital Systems and Services for Education and Learning (ASK) 10/58 Opening Up Education - Aspects of Openness  Open Curriculum: learners can mix educational resources, learning activities, and/or educational courses for different disciplines to meet their needs. This places learners in charge of their own learning and ensures that they will learn what they need to meet their personal desires and requirements.  Open Learning: teachers, experts and/or peers can share new ideas and new understanding during the learning process. This provides learners with opportunities for self-determined and independent learning.  Open Assessment: instead of formal evaluation of learning results, previously led by accredited education providers, assessment of what learners have learned can be carried out by their teachers, others and peers during the learning process via peer to peer or crowd-sourced assessment with on-demand accreditation for learners.  Open Platform: cloud–based provision and the use of open standards make it easier for different platforms and services to exchange information and data European Commission (2011).

Sampson 1 June 2014 Advanced Digital Systems and Services for Education and Learning (ASK) 15/58 • Educational Content: This is the lowest level of the hierarchical open access framework and it includes: • Open Educational Resources (OERs) in the form of Learning Objects (LOs) and • Educational metadata that are used to describe the different educational characteristics and attributes of a LO • Learning Activities: This is the second level of the hierarchical open access framework and for the purpose of our work, a Learning Activity (LA) is defined as: “the interaction of learner(s) with other(s) (peers and/or tutors) and with a learning environment (optionally involving educational content, tools and services), which emerges as a result of performing a task following a specific pedagogical strategy in order to achieve one or more learning objectives” (Beetham, 2007). • Educational Courses: This is the third level of the hierarchical open access framework and it can be developed as a sequence of LAs following a specific pedagogical strategy. Moreover, for the purpose of our work we consider that an educational course is delivered entirely online and can be facilitated by desktop and/or mobile devices towards addressing one or more learning objectives (Sampson & Zervas, 2011) • Education and/or Training Programmes: This is the highest level of the hierarchical open access framework and it can be developed as a synthesis of educational courses. An education and/or training programme typically includes the educational courses that constitute it, as well as the virtual classrooms that are used for supporting the delivery of the educational courses and may lead to a competences-based qualification (Sampson & Zervas, 2012) Hierarchical Elements Beetham, H.
