Så kom då den upphaussade presskonferensen om Olof Palmes mördare. Det blev verkligen platt fall då inget nytt presenterades. Det inledande spaningsarbetet för att få fatt Palmes mördare har fått mycket kritik men avslutning blev väl inte så mycket bättre. En fråga som väcks är om skall det stå i historieböckerna att ”Skandiamannen” mördade OlofFortsätt läsa "Vad skall det stå i historieböckerna?"
A great example of learning in communities and collaborative learning is the ONL course itself. As part of this course, each group works together towards creating a shared body of knowledge by investigating different aspects of the topic under study. One important success factor in this context is having a common goal and making sure … Continue reading Topic 3 – Learning in Communities and Group Learning →
Online and blended learning have become the new normal but yet they suggest a highly disruptive model that cannot be adopted overnight. Implementing open and online/blended learning requires that we change not only the delivery methods and technologies, but also the culture and teaching practices. To adopt it can be overwhelming, so let’s take oneContinue reading "Topic 5: Lessons learned"
For me, one major learning outcome from the ONL course was the realization that so much pedagogy, strategies and online tools have already been thought out, planned, executed and analyzed, that my colleagues and I certainly don´ t have to invent the wheel again. I´ m wholly convinced now of the value of collaborative learning,Continue reading "Topic 5 – Lessons Learnt: Go collaborative!"
The library and academic research, in particular, have been changed profoundly by the explosion of publishing, the break-neck pace of changes in information deliverytechnology, and the glorious and dauntingly chaotic flowering of information onthe Internet. As libraries, information specialists, media specialists, librarians,and faculty members struggle to keep up with these rapidly proliferating changes,they must moreContinue reading "Learning Communities and Libraries"
Libraries serve at least three roles in learning; firstly they serve a practical role in sharing expensive resources. Physical resources, such as books and periodicals, films and videos,software,electronic databases, specialized tools such as projectors, graphics equipment, cameras are shared by a commuity of users. Human resources, librarians( also known as information specialist) support instructional programsContinue reading "Libraries in blended learning"
Libraries play a vital part in helping people become digital citizens because they are accessible and trusted institutions in the community. They provide free access to learning. Lifelong learning and knowledge creation have long formed the core of library services (Lomax, 2020). Present libraries are working under invariably changing e-environments. Rapid advances in modernized technologiesContinue reading "Digital Libraries and Digital Literacy"
Blended learning becomes more and more popular. My firs继续阅读"Blended learning – a new solution"
The current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic has forced us all to adjust and adapt our teaching and examinations. Campus courses have been turned into online distance courses overnight. One issue that has been widely discussed and debated among the colleagues at University is: How do we design written examinations for online courses? Under normal …
12 weeks felt fast and slow at the same time. I think I have definitely gained a lot of insights from my peers in my PBL group (shoutout to PBL09) who are all so witty, funny, and unapologetically themselves (often creating lots of laughter in our meetings). Being part of an online learning group reallyContinue reading "End of Course Reflection"
Topic 5: Lessons learnt – future practice Those of you following this blog know that I have started this course because one of the requirements of my tenure track is to pursue pedagogy training. When I signed up back in February, little did I know that the whole education world would be forced online overContinue reading "ONL201: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Online Learning"
Depending on who’s asking, a meme is a novel evolutionary concept, a complex cultural phenomenon, of a picture with a writing in Impact font, white-filled, with a black border. Topic 5, at the conclusion of our ONL journey, discusses briefly what we have learned, and asks us to put our conclusions in meme form. What… Continue reading Topic 5: ceci n’est pas un meme
Something that I struggle with, in the context of online learning, is the enthusiasm of people. It seems to me that both teachers and learners tend to be very peppy about the topics of online learning, bleanded learning, flipped classrooms: it is difficult for me to detect the difference between a useful new concept and… Continue reading Topic 4 and the cult of online blended learning
Topic 4: Design for online and blended learning I could relate to this topic quite a lot as I’ve been experimenting with online and blended learning designs for some years now. As an undergraduate student in Eastern Europe in the late-2000s, most of my courses were lecture and textbook based. Just to get an idea,Continue reading "Achieving the Right Blend Requires Experimentation"
