Last week I worked on adding a new lecture to my Creative Concept development course. The lecture focused on using AI in creative work, especially in the early phases of design.I started with this video Introduction to a AI and creativity.And of cours…
What would you like ChatGPT to do for you, as a learner, educator, leader, friend, family member? What would you NOT want it to do?
With relief and with regret for me, ONL222 came to an end with the final webinar on the 9th of December 2022. Relief because I had been stretched with balancing ONL with my work which was especially demanding towards the end of the semester (with grading final papers, meetings and administrative tasks). Regret because I […]
In Professor Robin Kay’s webinar for Topic 4, I learnt some of the best practices for blended and online course design in order to encourage active learning and deep engagement among students. I encountered new digital tools and methods. For instance, it had not occurred to me to introduce myself to my students through a […]
Topic 3, Learning in communities, kicked off with the webinar given by Kay Oddone, Learning in communities 2022-11-07. I also watched her YouTube video, PLNs Theory and Practice, part 1, in which Kay describes insights from her research on “teachers’ experience of professional learning through personal learning networks (PLNs).” I learnt about networked collaborative learning, the […]

I think what got to me was the recent policy (which may have been scrapped, but who knows) of not including […]
For the summarizing reflection I have made some shorter reflections. Before embarking on them, my main reflection has been that this course has given me the opportunity to find a space where I actually can reflect and work together with others on topics I never have time to work on otherwise. My teaching, especially online, […]
Increasing interaction in my online courses is one of those topics that I keep thinking about. On one hand, I want my online and remote students engaged in the course because otherwise, they drop out or under-perform, but on the other hand, I also want to minimize the amount of interaction I have to put […]
What are the most important things you have learned through your engagement in the ONL course? Why? As I actually don’t even own a degree in pedagogy this has probably been more of an introduction to that whole topic than for most other learners. But what an introduction it has been. Even if we ignore […]
In my work in ICT and as a part of a development project designing the classrooms for the coming 10 years, I have really had to take a step back to have a look at where we are headed with all this. During the first year after the emergency remote teaching the situation was a […]
This course has been a real eye-opener for me personally as it is the first course I’ve taken that focuses on learning in small groups, in the form of problem based learning (PBL) in this case. I can immediately say that it has markedly improved my learning compared to a completely text based online course […]
HECC 2022 focused on post pandemic teaching and learning. It was short and sweet but packed with many insights.
