Integration of methods

Integration of methods

Problem

Instructors do not know how to integrate online and face-to-face learning methods and tools

Description

  • Instructors conduct face-to-face classes as before
  • They consider online learning only as a mode of presentation for the remote learning phase
  • Learning activities are sometimes more determined by what is possible to do from a technical point of view rather than what makes sense from a didactical point of view (use features, because they exist, even if the learning purpose has not been clearly defined)
  • Learning activities are given in isolation, they are often not coordinated
  • Sometimes learners are de-motivated

Context

Business, university, further education

Solutions

  • Online learning activities can be integrated in face-to-face learning sessions
  • This has the advantage that they can be demonstrated and practiced before learners start remote learning
  • The didactical purpose of an activity should be made transparent
  • Activities should be coordinated in a didactically/methodically meaningful way
  • Instructors should see best practice examples of how this can be accomplished

Dependencies

  • ICT competencies of the instructors
  • General and subject-matter specific didactical competencies
