Modeling spaces for self-directed learning at university courses

Taming the spaces

Today i sent away my paper: Modeling spaces for self-directed learning at university courses to the special call of Journal of Educational Technology & Society. The main idea is to bring out the ecological learning design framework elements and show how they were applicable at the course design. In the article I pointed to the need for the new learning design frameworks for self-directed learning with social software that were ecological.

Further thoughts about our presentation: 10th Networked Learning Conference 2016

I don’t remember the exact questions we were asked at the end of our presentation, but there was some discussion about whether it is realistic to think you can get an alignment between the teacher’s design intentions for a course and the learners’ experiences. For our work ‘structure’ means how a learning design balances openness and structure and how this balance is implemented in relation to the interactivity it enables. As much credence as any evaluation tool.
