For this year’s E-Learning Day, we will be focusing on presenting tested practice of our university’s social online teaching and learning and cooperatively exchanging experiences of designing e-learning scenarios. Teachers from our university will present their tried-and-tested concepts and share their insights into methods, teaching-learning activities and the appropriate digital tools with interested colleagues and students. With this, we will have the opportunity to discuss different formats of media-supported teaching, as well as the possibility of transferring these methods among and across disciplines.
This year's E-Learning Day will therefore pose following questions:
We invite all teachers at the University of Potsdam to participate.
The use of digital media has made it possible for most of the teaching to take place despite the current pandemic. Regular contact between teachers and students, as well as among students, is of particularly importance, reflected not least in the frequently expressed desire for more social interaction during studies. For the current call for proposals, we are interested in didactic, creative ideas – ideally including media-based tools – and proven concepts from the last semesters that addressed social interaction and communication.
Successful e-learning practices that enhance learning progress should be acknowledged and made accessible for colleagues in the same or from different subjects. Therefore, we cordially invite all teachers to submit their concept of an implemented online course in form of a short outline, to present it at the E-Learning Day and to discuss transfer possibilities with all participants.
As was the case in the previous years, presenting these practical examples and awarding the E- Learning Award 2021 "Social Online Teaching" will go hand in hand. You can decided whether you would like to submit your presentation at the E-Learning Day for consideration.
