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.

Workshops on “Inverted Classroom” at Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe, Lemgo, 28 & 29 April 2016

Last week, I held two inspiring workshops on the inverted classroom model for some highly motivated colleagues at Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe. After an unnerving breakdown of my car (transmission failure) at the periphery of Lemgo, I arrived just in time for the start of the first workshop. However, the whole team and the participants were quite empathic and helpful.

During the workshop, we had some lively, productive and insightful discussions that will help me to further refine the workshop concept.
