Erschienen: Die Monster-MOOC-Weiterbildung. Erfahrungen mit der Übertragung eines interaktiven Präsenzworkshops in den digitalen Raum #medienimpulse

Quelle: Sandra Schön Autor: sansch

Einen interaktiven Workshop gestalten: geschenkt. Doch wie bringt man ihn in den virtuellen Raum? Martin Ebner hat die Herausforderung in der COVID-19-Krise angepackt und ein Workshopdesign, mit dem wir im Präsenzformat bei der Universität Passau (Lehre+ Hochschuldidaktik) gute Erfahrungen gemacht haben möglicht 1:1 in den virtuellen Raum übertragen und dort mit Lehrenden der FH Salzburg durchgeführt.

Im Beitrag wird das Konzept eines Präsenzworkshops zur Einführung von MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) für Lehrende an Hochschulen vorgestellt, wie es im Jahr 2013 mit hohen Anteilen von Interaktion und Gruppenarbeit entwickelt wurde. In der Folge der COVID-19-Krise und Umstellung auf Home Office und Online-Begegnungen wurde versucht, das methodisch-didaktische Konzept möglichst gleichartig in den digitalen Raum zu übertragen. Im Artikel wird beschrieben, welche Tools dabei zum Einsatz kamen und wie sie sich auf die Arbeitsweisen und -ergebnisse ausgewirkt haben.

Man kann jetzt nicht nur nachlesen wie wir Workshops für MOOC-Einsteiger/innen gestalten in Präsenz und Online gestalten, sondern auch, auf was man beim Übertragen ins Online-Format achten sollte.

Publication: Remote Future Teacher Training with MOOCs – Teaching in #COVID19 Pandemic. Stories from the field

Quelle: Sandra Schön Autor: sansch

#COVID19 was and is a big challenge for many people, for teachers as universities as well. And of course we love to share experiences we made or have seen at the TU Graz as well to enrich the contributions on teaching and learning with technologies in HEI.

This time we contributed to a book which collects 133 (!) experiences from colleagues worldwide, all available under CC BY NC ND. Please have look and check:


https://www.learntechlib.org/p/216903/

Our contribution describes:

To train future Austrian teachers in using digital media, a novel didactic design was implemented at several universities in Austria in summer semester 2019: The course includes the participation in a MOOC (massive open online course) on the topic, an accompanying group work at the universities and multiple-choice tests conducted at the universities. In the summer semester of 2020, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the group work and exams had to be switched to virtual space as well. Because the course materials are available under an open license, i.e. as open educational resources, further use is possible and offered.

On the top of TU Graz publications: COVID-19 as E-Learning boost #researchgate #top #tugraz

Quelle: Sandra Schön Autor: sansch

After my debut as a researcher at Graz University of Technology, the first article has now been published in which I actually participated as an official employee of Graz University of Technology. Now it is probably due to the great team of Martin Ebner, the Educational Technology Team of TU Graz, that the article about their role and acitivities and effects during the first three weeks of the COVID-19 crisis at TU Graz gets so much attention (and probably also automatisms around the hashtag #covid19 😀 ), but hey: This second article since my start at TU Graz rocks (again) up to the top of TU Graz at Research Gate!

By the way, since 1.4.20 I was always the only woman in the #researchgate #tugraz top 10, now there are my femal co-authors as well! <3<3<3

[publication] COVID-19 Epidemic as E-Learning Boost? Chronological Development and Effects at an Austrian University against the Background of the Concept of “E-Learning Readiness” #covid19 #tugraz

Quelle: Sandra Schön Autor: sansch

My first research article as a team member of Graz University of Technology is a research article concerning the situation of COVID-19 titled „COVID-19 Epidemic  as E-Learning Boost? Chronological Development and Effects at an  Austrian University against the Background of the Concept of “E-Learning  Readiness”. It’s really inspiring to be part of such a smart and commited Educational Technology team who did such a great job, not only but especially in the crazy first weeks of COID19 crisis in Austria.

Abstract:
The COVID-19 crisis influenced universities worldwide in early 2020. In Austria, all universities were closed in March 2020 as a preventive measure, and meetings with over 100 people were banned and a curfew was imposed. This development also had a massive impact on teaching, which in Austria takes place largely face-to-face. In this paper we would like to describe the situation of an Austrian university regarding e-learning before and during the first three weeks of the changeover of the teaching system, using the example of Graz University of Technology (TU Graz). The authors provide insights into the internal procedures, processes and decisions of their university and present figures on the changed usage behaviour of their students and teachers. As a theoretical reference, the article uses the e-learning readiness assessment according to Alshaher (2013), which provides a framework for describing the status of the situation regarding e-learning before the crisis. The paper concludes with a description of enablers, barriers and bottlenecks from the perspective of the members of the Educational Technology department.

[publication] Open Educational Resources in Austria #oer #austria #oerat

Quelle: Sandra Schön Autor: sansch

As part of the book Current State of Open Educational Resources in the “Belt and Road” Countries we did a chapter about the current state in Austria.

Abstract:
In Austria, located in the center of Europe, when compared earlier in relation to other German-speaking countries in Europe, individuals and groups started to develop and work on the idea of freely available and usable learning content on the Internet. A first Austrian milestone was the coordination of an international conference on open educational content in 2007 as the final activity of the first European project that was focused on OER (olcos.org). Within the contribution an overview of current state and developments of OER activities in Austria is given, also describing its infrastructure, policy, existing resources, curriculum and teaching methodologies, outcome, stakeholders and impact for education. The chapter gives a comprehensive overview of all OER activities in Austria and outlines the benefits for the educational system as well. It can be summarized that the Austrian way seems to be successful even though the steps forward are often small.

What a debut :-D #tugraz #happyresearcher

Quelle: Sandra Schön Autor: sansch

Nowadays, the value of a researcher is evaluated with scientific output and indices like the h-index. At my previous employer, the Salzburg Research Forschungsgesellschaft, my publications were listed in the top ten in Research Gate Statistics. This is not particularly surprising, as publications did not play a major role among my colleagues. – I also had the company’s highest RG index.

With one of my new employers, Graz University of Technology, things look quite different, of course. Here I am just a literally „small number“. As I just started at first of April at the TU Graz: Only one publication currently adorns my research profile at Graz University of Technology.

And hey, it’s not real research either. But last week, this first and single article had THE HIGHEST READS of all the contributions of Graz University of Technology at Research Gate.

I’ll print it out and frame it. 😀 – what a debut! – And we are again on top this week 😀

Thanks a lot to my co-author Martin Ebner and to Jochen Robes who wrote about the article <3<3<3
