Date Friday, Nov 25  Time   –      Status: 

OEB speaker Jürgen Handke

Jürgen Handke

Linguist, Educator, Awardwinning Digital Learning and Teaching Pioneer, Germany

This pre-conference workshop consists of two parts:

Part I.  The preliminary Online-Course "EDU21 - 21st Century Education"; Workload: 1h
Part II. The Synchronous Meeting Workload; Workload: 6h

The goal of this two-fold concept is not only to get to know the components of modern digital teaching and learning, but also to experience such scenarios via a preliminary online-course.

Part I: The preliminary Online course

A week before the synchronous workshop, all participants will be assigned to the Online-Course “EDU21 – Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century” on the Virtual Linguistics Campus ( The course pursues two goals. On the one hand, the participants will be put into the position of student learners and thus experience digital teaching and learning with all their facets; on the other hand, they will acquire the necessary background knowledge before the synchronous workshop by working through up to two topics in EDU21:

a. Topic #1: TL From Past to Present (with E-Assessment)
b. Topic #2: Digital TL (with E-Assessment) All other topics of EDU21 are freely available for self-study.

Note that EDU21 will stay open for all participants for three further months.

Part II: The synchronous workshop

The synchronous workshop is organised along the motto: “No more theory, let’s practice!”. It is a full-day workshop whose main goal is not to present but to develop. It his highly collaborative and consists of three parts:

Part A: Digital Content – Development, Delivery and Use
Part B: Integrating Assessment and Incentives
Part C: New In-Class Scenarios and Activities

Asynchronous teaching and learning require the use of a Learning Management System. In the workshop we will use Moodle, and all participants will be given access to a “Maker Space Area” where they can develop their own content. However, all components and developments will be organised in such a way that they can be transferred to other learning management systems.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the problems of traditional and “pandemic” teaching and learning scenarios,
  • Specify digital solutions and apply them to their disciplines,
  • Understand and apply the new options for in-class scenarios,
  • Be enabled to estimate the efforts necessary for the digitization of content in their fields, be enabled to develop digital teaching and learning materials.
