I’m involved in four sessions at Online Educa next week in Berlin. Should be a good conference!
Firstly, with Ishay Mor, Yannis Dimitriadis and others, I am involved in a pre-conference workshop on 30th December, entitled ‘Theory and practice of designing for learning‘. It follows on from an excellent STELLAR workshop last month, Art and Science of Learning Design. The session will include a broad overview of the state of the field of learning design, introduce participants to some pedagogical patterns and enable them to explore a number of learning design tools.
Secondly, with Graham Attwell and others I am involved in an educational version of Question Time – should be fun!
Thirdly, with Tapio Koskinen and Lieve Van Den Brande I am involved in a session entitled, ‘Creative Learning Environments’, which will include the launch of a special issue of elearning papers on learning design.
Finally, on Friday afternoon with Ulf Ehlers and others I am involved in the OPAL awards ceremony for best practices in Open Educational Resources, which will be followed by a drinks reception.
So all in all Online Educa looks set to be a busy conference!
