Summer term 2009: “Games, Play and Education” (2nd Edition)

For summer term 2009 I’ll offer a seminar targeting ePedagogy-students who already have attended seminars dealing with learning theories, pedagogical media theory, and game based learning (see this post for a short list of authors and topics).

Seminar (presence) will be held on Thursdays from 10:00-12:00 (german time), starting with April 9th to July 16th 2009

Reviewing the seminar “Pedagogical Media Theory and Game Based Learning”

Concept and structure

This term – winter 2008 – my seminar focussed on basics of media theory and their application to the understanding, use and creation of games in an educational frame. While my last seminar dealt mainly with learning theories and motivation, the view turned to media in general, in culture, communication and creation.
Taking a closer look at ‘New Media’ – networked digital media – isn’t simply learning about new channels for educative content. It may be a change from a receptive, interpretative, centralised form of communication to a configurative, collaborative, decentralised one. Both its’ (at this time) predominant traits, digitality supporting its role as recursive media-simulating metamedium, and networking supporting its role as global social medium, may influence the way we perceive information, knowledge and learning.
This seminar had a focus on ludic simulations, known as games and toys. These share some traits with digital media, but also may shed light on two inherent antagonistic sides: Rule-bound compliance and stability, as well as an appropriatable and configurable space of possibilities.

eLearning and ePortfolios

ThanksHey Guys, unfortunately no one of the international ePedagogy students participated in my seminar this semester. Thats was a little bad sad for the other participants, but because the students expected an seminar in english language and there are other international students in we are having the seminar in english, yeah!
You can follow most parts of the seminar on the web as I mentioned already. I just wrote a little blogpost about the seminar in my own blog which might be interesting for you, it is in english too.
It is about Reasons to work with a Blog and Wiki in Seminars, the Request for Feedback to what the students did and an outlook what will happen in the next weeks with the seminar. It would be great if you find some intersting stuff for you or give feedback to the students blogs! (They admitted that the international collaberation would had been very intersting for them!)

Thanks!

ePedagogy(Bar)Camp Barcelona?

Barcamp

The next international Seminar is said to be in the begin of October and should be held in Barcelona (great!).

I thougt about if a BarCamp as a open Structure for this Seminar might be right decision. For those of you who don’t know yet what a BarCamp is:

BarCamp is an ad-hoc unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers.

When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.

In my opinion the Part of exchanging knowledge should be implemented much more in our

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.

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.

New (minor and german) courses added

We just added 3 minor courses for the program in summer 2006. All will be held in german language. Sorry for that (but we’re on the way ….)
-> http://mms.uni-hamburg.de/eped/courses

Maybe especially the lecture-series “Medien & Bildung” might be interesting (for those who understand german). We even have one international speaker: Geert Lovink from Amsterdam University, Founder and Director of the Institute of Network Cultures

see http://mms.uni-hamburg.de/lehre/rvlsose06.html for further details.
