How To

Asynchronous Digital Teaching and Learning: Development - Delivery - Use

Date Friday, Nov 25  Time   –    Room Queen

The Workshop “Asynchronous Digital Teaching and Learning: Development - Delivery – Use” consists of two parts: 

Part I:  The preliminary online course "EDU21 - 21st Century Education" (workload 1 hour)
Part II: The synchronous meeting at OEB22 (workload 3 hours)

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:

  • The participants will be put into the position of students/learners and thus experience digital teaching and learning with all their facets.
  • The participants will acquire the necessary background knowledge before the synchronous workshop by working through up to two topics in EDU21
    • Topic #1: TL From Past to Present (with E-Assessment)
    • 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 3 hour 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 requires the use of a Learning Management System. In the workshop we will use Moodle, and all participants will be given access to 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.
