Second workshop on Digital Mastery Learning Model (DMLM)

On 31 January and 1 February, Anna Mucha, Claudia Vogeler and I held our second workshop on online courses based on the Digital Mastery Learning Model (DMLM) at HAW Hamburg, Hamburg.

As explained in an earlier blog post, the DMLM is a time-independent and decentralized virtual educational setting based on the concept of mastery learning (Bloom 1968) and modern digital learning designs. Among others, we addressed theoretical foundations, practical examples, self-concept aspects and operational implementation in Moodle.

As always, we were able to gather valuable insights from the discussions with workshop participants. One more time, the relevance of the individual professional culture and its impact on the teaching methodology of subjects (engineering, computer sciences, social sciences etc.) as well as the academic self concept and educational ideals came to light.

We would like to thank all participants for their input.

The DMLM is a time-independent and decentralized virtual educational setting based on the concept of mastery learning (Bloom 1968) and modern digital learning designs. Among others, we addressed theoretical foundations, practical examples, self-concept aspects and operational implementation in Moodle.

A number of colleagues will adapt the concept in order to rework their courses and to test the new design during the summer term 2018. An evaluation will accompany the transformation process.
