Seminar: Games, Play and Education

Like Ralf and Christina, I’m offering a seminar for the ePedagogy Design programme, open also for students of the Hamburg University’s Faculty of Education (33 participants as yet).
It will focus on game based learning, striving for an overview on learning theories, theories on game and play, and selected medium specific theories and practices dealing with (digital) game design. The goal would be to reach a deeper insight in the workings of educational games, on what different cognitive levels a (computer)game could be used as a learning environment, to get an overview on some popular genres of Game Based Learning and generally to take a personal and reflected stance on this topic.
Project work will aim for a documented and reflected draft, design or analysis of a gaming environment usable or used for education. Documentation and results will be made available in the projectroom’s public wiki.

The seminar will take place with synchronous sessions at tuesdays, from 12:00 to 14:00 german time (13:00 to 15:00 Finland time), where you should be available to participate via internet connection, and asynchronous, self-organised project work in groups of two to four students.
For questions or requests for participation as student or guest, please mail to wey-han.tan [at] uni-hamburg.de.


Change of media – change of educational settings

I am also giving a seminar, starting in the first week in April. It belongs to the seminar series “KnowledgeFormation” – with the focus on “Change of media – change of educational settings”. At wiki.christinaferner.de you find a description of the seminar.
There will be synchronous events on Tuesday, 14-16 p.m. (German time). The seminar will be mainly based on project work and discussions via Skype or Adobe Breeze. The project work will be based on building up a media-rich knowledge base in a wiki.

If you want to enroll, or if you have any questions, please leave a comment or write a mail to christina.ferner@uni-hamburg.de


Seminar: Premesis of virtual Learning

Hello ePedagogy Fellows!
Within the first week of April my first Seminar for the ePedagogy Program will start. The Title will be “Premesis of eLearning” and it deals with… yes, eLearning. 😉
You will find the description of the Seminar here.
22 Participants from Hamburg already signed up, but the concept of the seminar takes into account that there might be participants from anywhere else where you will find a Internet connection.
We will have some synchronous Sessions on Tuesday 10.00-12.00 (UTC/GMT +1 hour) and a lot of work in groups, more or less asynchronous, but you should be available (online) during this time.
There will be Tasks every week, and if you like you can already start with the first one
If you don’t have time to join us regularly think of participate via the blog even sometimes, would be nice.
