Topic 4 has come to an end. For me, a few words from the Community of Inquiry theoretical framework stays in my head; teaching presence not teacher presence. It if funny to think how only a few letters can make such a big difference in terms of meaning of a word! The theory of Inquiry suggests three key elements that …
Before wecan start to think about course design for online environments, I feel that it is vital to have a definition of what we want to achieve: What is a successful learning situation? How can success be defined in connection to learning? In defining this for myself, David Wiley’s TED talk from the 6th of … Continue reading "What is success in learning?"
Last topic of the course. Time to say goodbye. After several weeks of learning, exchanges, growth… a mixture of feelings comes over me. On the one hand, I am happy for the job done and also a little relieved that I no longer have to devote so many hours a week to the course. However,Continuar lendo "Final blog post"
Hello! We are reaching the final stretch of the course and, despite so many weeks in contact with new knowledge, I feel that with each topic I have much more to learn. As I mentioned in the initial posts, this course uses an active teaching methodology in PBL (problem based learning) format. This means thatContinuar lendo "Design for online and blended learning"
At the moment I only teach campus courses but I have experience with online courses as well, but that was some years ago, when technology wasn’t as good as it is now, and also I think that I lacked knowledge of the opportunities given by technology.

I think the main merit of participating in the course actually has been to take part in a structured online course entity, and through that becoming familiar with tools that can be useful when having to structure and run online and blended learning courses in the future. As this will be expected from us byContinue reading "Topic 5"

After working with the ONL 192 course for a full three months it’s time to sum up my thoughts and lessons learnt. It’s been an exciting ride: meeting new friends in our PBL group, trying our way in problem based learning, struggling with how to make good use of digital tools, crazy scheduling to makeFortsätt läsa "The end of the beginning"
Watching Kay Odonne’s interesting lecture on Personal Learning Networks for this week’s topic, I wondered: How collaborative is my PLN? And, on a more basic level, what exactly does my PLN look like? For the most part, I try to draw on many different sources of knowledge during day to day practices. I read the … Continue reading "Is my PLN a collaborative learning environment?"
This is my final entry addressing the ONL course – it’s on topic 5 “lessons learned – future practices” This course was quite an experience!

This entry, as … Continue reading Teaching and Emotions
This entry is part of the course ONL192 (topic 3 Learning in Communities) Online teaching and learning can be a very distanced, detached experience – high drop out rates and incomplete assignments haunt the online learning environments in many conventional distance courses. Taking this course, the ONL 192, helped me to understand why this happens … Continue reading Learning through friendship
This topic got off to to a slow start for me, as I was on exchange at a partner university during the first week, thus missing out on the meeting held then, and thus finding it difficult to allocate time to contribute much during that week. Additionally, our group had by now shrunk to threeContinue reading "Topic 4"

My ONL 192 trip with the PBL Group 11, i.e. „The Eleveners“, comes to an end. When I think about what impressed me the most and what I will take with me from this experience for my future work as an educator and enabler of learning processes, I would like to mention the following two"The end … always is also a beginning" weiterlesen
