  7. 7. Introduction University of Twente
  8. 8. Twente Educational Model (TOM) summarized Very concise summary (we need to facilitate) learning as well as teaching See Teaching to Learning--a New Paradigm for Undergraduate Education. Barr, Robert B.; Tagg, John. Change, v27 n6 p12-25 Nov-Dec 1995.
  9. 9. Twente Educational Model (TOM) §  Studying at the UT is serious business §  More responsibility for the student §  Active engagement of students through a variety of effective methods of teaching and learning §  Modular programmes §  Project-Led Education §  Different methods of assessing where the student stands, during the process (formative evaluation, and timely feedback!) §  Staff will act more as coach, tutor, guide, facilitator, motivator… §  Transfer of knowledge becomes less important, since students can acquire that elsewhere (to a certain degree) Zie ook http://www.utwente.nl/onderwijs/twents-onderwijsmodel/TOMprincipes
  10. 10. Technology Enhanced Learning & Teaching: themes we will work on Plan for 2013-2015 1. Formative testing and assessment 2. Digital learning materials 3. Activating methods for learning & teaching 4. Learning & working together 5.

MOOC’s for the UT: why and what §  Primary goal: international marketing §  To enhance our profile High Tech, Human Touch §  Reach out to potential Master- and Phd- students §  Participants will need to have Bachelor (?) level §  Study workload per MOOC: 3-5 EC (85 – 140 hrs) §  Typical course length: 8-10 weeks §  Goal: produce 2 MOOC’s in 2014 §  Call for proposals almost finalized §  To be discussed and researched further: §  formal credit ?, platform selection ? etc
  13. 13. MOOC’s = business as usual !! 1.  Treat it as a project – projectplan is in the making right now 2.  Broad range of different expertise needs to be available in project-team 3.  Make the MOOC as attractive and effective as possible: assignments, videolectures, peer-graded essays, knowledge tests etc (stretch the platform!) 4.  Use an engineering approach (OKT model!) for design and production 5.  Your responses / suggestions? Experience?
  14. 14. MOOC’s = business as usual?? 1.  The world is our podium 2.  It needs to be 100% online and 99% asynchronous 3.  Risk of completely seperate development 4.  Proficiency in English language 5.  Lecturers are used to work independently 6.  Is the primary driver Marketing or is it Education?
  15. 15. Biggest challenges right now 1.  The right expertise at the right time 2.  Availability of lecturer(s) for the project 3.  How to assist the lecturer(s) 4.  Gain knowledge of and experience with the MOOC platform (which needs to be chosen) 5.  Make the MOOC didactical attractive and effective 6.  Improvement of regular programmes, based on experiences in MOOC 7.  Convert participant in MOOC into “regular” student 8.  Your responses / suggestions?
