EMOOCs2014: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view

Published on

The learning model of Connectivism implies a great challenge to European universities and further education. Over the last years many teachers and trainers have integrated e-learning into their classes, mostly combining face-to-face workshops with online phases. E-learning gave learners and teachers more flexibility concerning the location and time-frame of learning. Now connectivism is changing this approach of e-learning and the role of moderators significantly. In the following paper the authors describe the transition from a closed learning environment to an open one and its further development to a hybrid concept combining protected and open learning processes. The experiences with these different concepts are discussed. The moderators’ reflections and the results of online evaluations are going to be presented.

EMOOCs2014: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view

  1. 1. Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view EMOOCs 2014 Jutta Pauschenwein, Erika Pernold, Eva Goldgruber ZML – Innovative Lernszenarien FH JOANNEUM, Graz, Austria Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 1
  2. 2. About JP     Head of ZML – Innovative Learning Scenarios, FH JOANNEUM, University of Applied Sciences, Graz, Austria Research: social constructivism, communities of practice, e-moderation, gender in e-learning, connectivism, MOOCs, emergent learning, footprints of emergence, open learning processes Daily work: e-learning at FH JOANNEUM, projects, online training courses I’m good at designing online learning scenarios and moderating small groups Online: twitter/jupidu – http://zmldidaktik.wordpress.com My institute: http://zml.fh-joanneum.at/?lan=en Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 2
  3. 3. Online trainings  Since 2006 certified e-convenor according to Gilly Salmon  Gilly‘s 5 stage model: access and motivation, online socialisation, information exchange, knowledge construction, development  Delivery and moderation of many online courses – different topics around e-learning pedagogy in closed learning environments with max. 15 learners  January 2014: 14th e-moderating course  Sep. 2011 – May 2012: Change11 MOOC, most exciting learning experience ever  Being in the role of a learner, making reflection processes visible for others  Many new ideas, new network Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 3
  4. 4. First experiment (miniMOOC12)  Open course based on connectivism  Project “web-literacy Lab” (WLL) to support companies in their use of the web  Objective of the course: to build the WLL network  Tools: a Wordpress blog for the content and a Google+ circle for discussion / exchange  Facilitator prepares content, e-moderator (convener) supports learners (prepare virtual room, moderating, summarizing, …)  4 pre-defined „e-tivities“ per week  online tasks according to Gilly Salmon  3 weeks, Feb./Mar. 2012, about 60 participants Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 4
  5. 5. Evaluation (miniMOOC12)     About 50% were satisfied with the training and the achievement of their learning goals. More than 70% found the learning materials useful. They appreciated the work of the moderator (82%) and the inputs of the facilitator (94%) The moderator didn’t get to know the learners, didn’t identify all of them, couldn’t monitor them – was not satisfied.

  6. 6. Challenge Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 My booth in Wenger‘s Betreat, Aug. 12 6
  7. 7. Second experiment (miniMOOC13)  Hybrid course based on connectivism (web-literacy Lab)  Objective: to investigate the concept of content strategy  Similar tools as last time: a WP blog (content), a Google+ community (easier to handle than circles)  New tools: hangouts on air (youtube videos) AND a closed facebook group for online socialisation before the open phase  Facilitator prepares content, attends hangouts  E-moderator (convener) supports learners (prepares virtual room, moderates the hangouts, summarizes, writes protocols)  4 pre-defined „e-tivities“ per week  4,5 weeks, Jan./Feb. 2013, about 50 participants Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 7
  8. 8. Evaluation (miniMOOC13)      The closed facebook group (28 persons) was fun and worked well – but the spirit of the fb group didn’t survive in the open Google+ environment. 87% of the participants were satisfied with the training. 82% appreciated the work of the moderator, 93% the inputs of the expert. 71% of the learners answered that the online socialization in facebook supported them in the open learning process in Google+ But the moderator didn‘t know how many learners there were – between 61148 watched the videos of the hangouts.

  9. 9. Intermediary result  The miniMOOCs worked in a way.  The inclusion of e-tivities was helpful.  The learners appreciated the moderators nearly as much as the facilitators.  The online socialisation in the facebook group was successful (but didn’t help that much for the open phase). So what?  We returned to our closed groups and moderated four online courses since the miniMOOC13 in Jan./Feb. 12.  We attended MOOCs and reflected our learning experiences and had a lot of discussions.

  10. 10. Perspective (cope14 MOOC)  In autumn 2013 we convinced our directors to support a MOOC.  We looked for facilitators who will bring their expertise into our MOOC.  We are developing a didactical concept including moderation. Competences for Global Collaboration – cope14       6 weeks - 22nd April to 02nd June 2014 Week 1: Communication across borders: Introduction and warm-up (Facilitators: Rupert Beinhauer, Jutta Pauschenwein; Visiting Speaker: Heinz Wittenbrink,) Week 2: Legal cultures (Facilitator: Doris Kiendl-Wendner) Week 3: Doing Business in Emergent Markets (Facilitator: Thomas Schmalzer; Visiting Speaker: Vito Bobek) Week 4: Relationships & Networks in Business to Business Marketing (Facilitator: Denny Seiger; Visiting Speaker: Rahul Singh) Week 5: International communication and negotiation (Facilitator: Gudrun Reimerth; Visiting Speaker: Maryam Bigdeli) Week 6: Transfer into individual contexts (Facilitators: Maja Pivec, Jutta Pauschenwein) Jutta Pauschenwein: Experiments with connectivism from a moderator’s point of view February 2014 10
