So the ONL course has ended and I’m still pondering if I should keep this blog alive or not. There are some ideas in my head on where this could go and in which direction to develop. I’ll take another week or two to think about it and then…
The very last week of my ONL experience has started and I’m trying to find the time to truely reflect on the whole experience. I feel sorry that I don’t have a lot of room in my busy week to go back through the topics, scroll through the literature and find a take home message […]
Again, group sessions for this topic included a lot of discussions about terminology. What is blended learning? What is online teaching? Does blending always mean having online and offline courses?However, everybody immediately knew whats’s meant by emergency remote teaching, the term says it all. The sudden switch to online teaching and learning was especially hard […]
For the third topic, learning in communities, networked collaborative learning, again the group work started with trying to define the different terms. What is a group, a set, a network, a community? Are all of us actually a part of all these different types of social constructs? And how do we use them every day […]
Over the last two weeks we’ve worked on open education and the whole concept of openness. At times I’ve felt the more we talked about it, the more difficult it became to define what open education actually means. Maha Bali’s webinar actually really opened my eyes to the social justice point, the global issues when […]
I was really interested in hearing different perspectives of this topic in my PBL group as I have just started to work in a project concerning participation of students and teachers in digital learning environments at university. We realized quickly during our discussions in the group how important it is to define and grasp the […]
I’m still thrilled by our PBL group meeting this morning where we continued to work on our Miro board. We decided to just record our conversation about the board for this week’s group work. I’ll take some time tomorrow to write my reflection as today I’m just jumping from meeting to meeting. But I can […]
So, work on the first topic has started and I have to say I´m impressed. I had imagined it to be very difficult to work tohether across continents and timezones, but the first meeting went very well. We have decided to work on a miro board and actually had a lot of fun using it […]
So here we are, the course has started with finding my way around ONL spaces. I´ve also had the opportunity to meet with the members of my PBL group 4. It was great to hear about the others, their interests and the reasons why they chose this course. We have also decided to generate a […]
I’m sitting here, thinking about how to start my blog about experiences with online learning and teaching at a German university. I’ve blogged a few times before, however, always in the context of a specific seminar or lecture series.
I see!That was an experienced I missed. Still, my inquiry community shared it with me – enabling me to participate through their eyes.
It is amazing what can be accomplished in a group. Everybody has a talent. Even if – at first glance- we are not convinced we can contriubute anything: we do. The only thing we need to do is dare to participate. It doesn´t necessarily require a l…
