Sharing experiences - Asynchronous teaching

Target audience: Everyone  
Prerequisites: None
Length: ca. 60min

This webinar will share experiences from building a set up for asynchronous, online teaching this spring. Asynchronous teaching is where part of the teaching is done by the students alone or in groups working on pre-prepared exercises and tasks. Dagrun will adress the choices she made and the reasoning behind them, as well as how this set up was intergrated in Blackboard (the use of Wiki is central). She will also discuss what has been learned from doing this and how it has worked for the students. The teaching design was so successful that it will be repeated even once we return to campus teaching as the learning value was so high!

Course holder: Dagrun Engen (Institute for education and teacher training)
