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!

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.

Owen arrived already tonight and Alex and me picked him up at the airport and had already very interesting discussions concerning several eped-related topics.
Later that evening we met Christina and Owen introduced secondlife to us.
All eped-students and others as well all over the world are invited to follow the international seminar starting tomorrow (officially) by contributing and reading this blog. We will try to post contents regularly.
Everybody tagging digital bits about this seminar is asked to tag it with epedagogyhh2006 and epedagogy.
