Title: Towards Didactic Variety - Learning Outcomes as a core element of Learning Design
Presenter: Professor Peter Baumgartner, Danube University Krems


Outline

As a consequence of the Bologna reform, a shift from input orientation towards output orientation can be noticed in Higher Education. This has implications on the design of learning: It is not primarily the student who needs to be in the focus of learning design. Learning design needs to develop a better focus on real learning outcomes, when practical achievements and student engagement should be assured. This has implications on the design of the curriculum, educational programme and/or assessments.

 

In this online presentation, the notion of output oriented learning design will be explained. The presenter discusses learning outcomes from different perspectives, explains the relevance of didactic variety in education, and provides methodological backgrounds.

Title: An Approach to Persuasive Learning Design
Presenter: Dr Sandra Burri Gram Hansen, Aalborg University

This free webinar provides an overall introduction to the approach taken to Persuasive Design at Aalborg University. Persuasive Design is based on perspectives introduced by BJ Fogg when he defined the term Persuasive Technologies, but draws upon elements from classic humanistic traditions in the process of defining a theoretical foundation which may facilitate future research and development within the field. The webinar will give a general introduction to persuasive design, and address some of the challenges of combining this particular approach to computer mediated communication with the more established field of Digital Learning.
