Technological decisions in course design

  1. 1. Technological Decisions in Course Design lecture Mikhail Fominykh Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway Technology-Enhanced Learning 1 course University of Oulu, Finland March, 14 20131
  2. 2. Outline o Questions o Good start o Role of technology o Technology challenges o Tools2
  3. 3. Outline o Questions o Good start o Role of technology o Technology challenges o Tools3
  4. 4. Questions o Do YOU have technology-related questions? o Activity – Work in groups of 3–5 – Discuss what technology-related questions you have – After 5 minutes, present three main questions4
  5. 5. Questions o What is TEL? o Why doing TEL? o Why is TEL so difficult? o How to design technological environments for learning? o How to choose appropriate technology/media?5
  6. 6. TEL: technology-enhanced learning ngi nc ha en6
  7. 7. Outline o Questions o Good start o Role of technology o Technology challenges o Tools7
  8. 8. Good start for TEL design o What factors have to considered before (or when) you start? o Activity – Work in groups of 3–5 – Discuss what factors need to be considered before you start designing a TEL activity or course – After 7 minutes, present as many factors as you find8
  9. 9. Good start for TEL: content o Subject and scope, or a learning goal o Complexity level: requisites / outcomes o Syllabus and related work o Materials or learning content o Structure, rules, delivery, assessment o Calendar o etc. [http://ctl.stanford.edu/handbook/course-design.html]9
  10. 10. Good start for TEL: context o Learners – Prior knowledge and experience – Preferences and expectations o Settings – Geographical location, language and culture – Access to equipment and connectivity – Requirements and expected outcomes o Available resources o etc. [http://ctl.stanford.edu/handbook/course-design.html]10
  11. 11. TEL: technology-enhanced learners11
  12. 12. Internet: everything is there! i12
  13. 13. Know learners before decide how to support them: factors to consider o If learners are co-located or distributed o If there is any specific technology that learners are already familiar with o If a learning management system is already in use o Equipment and connectivity learners have access to13
  14. 14. Outline o Questions o Good start o Role of technology o Technology challenges o Tools14
  15. 15. Role of technology o What is the role of technology in TEL? o Activity – Work in groups of 3–5 – Discuss what kind of role(s) technology can play in TEL activity or course – After 7 minutes, present three main roles15
  16. 16. Role of technology o What learning approach do you apply? – Constructivism? – Reflective learning? o Do you need technology to support learning? – What is learning exactly? o Do you need technology to support specific activities or enable something? – Access to resources? – Communication or collaboration?16
  17. 17. Role of technology o Supporting learning activities – safe solutions – facilitating – increasing efficiency o Creating learning experience – new solutions – changing – increasing creativity o Supporting secondary activities17
  18. 18. Support: access to resources o What type of material should be supported (only text, multimedia, …)? o Who should get access to it (open access, restricted, group access, …)? o Is there any specific learning tool that student should access? …18
  19. 19. Support: communication o Synchronous communication, i.e. students talking to each others like in a face to face meeting o Asynchronous communication, i.e. when students are not present at the same time19
  20. 20. Support: more o Coordination o Awareness o Discussion / constructing understanding o Collaborating / constructing shared artifacts o etc.20
  21. 21. Outline o Questions o Good start o Role of technology o Technology challenges o Tools21
  22. 22. Technology challenges in TEL o What are the technology challenges in TEL? o Activity – Work in groups of 3–5 – Discuss what kind of technology-related challenges exist in conducting TEL activities or courses – After 7 minutes, present three main challenges22
  23. 23. Grand TEL challenges o Connecting learners o Orchestrating learning o Contextualizing virtual learning environments and instrumentalizing learning contexts [http://www.stellarnet.eu/]23
  24. 24. Outline o Questions o Good start o Role of technology o Technology challenges o Tools24
  25. 25. TEL tools o Siemens G. and Tittenberger P. (2009) “Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning” [http://www.scribd.com/doc/54496169/Handbook-of-Emerging- Technologies-for-Learning-Siemens-Tittenberger]25
