ONL - Open networked learning

ONL172 autumn 2017

This course addresses teachers, course designers, educational developers and learning technologists in higher education. It presents opportunities to explore a multitude of aspects of Open Networked Learning with colleagues from around the world in a multidisciplinary and cross-cultural context. ONL utilizes open, collaborative learning practices, a problem-based learning format and aims to build personal learning networks. The course models the use of freely available social media tools and a platform that does not require extensive technical expertise to be mastered and implemented. The focus is on how available digital technologies can support course design and extend opportunities for collaboration, engagement and learning. The course is given in two different formats; as an open course freely available on the internet and as an institutional course, see below.
