Triinu – Corse of statistics was unexpectedly popular – 40 students per 22 seats in the computer lab. Most of the DLG students were rejected because this course was elective to them. Solution: Provide this course on yearly basis (currently this course takes place after every 2 years)? Find another person to teach this – Vladimir has a candidate.
Hanna-Liisa decides to make prerecorded video presentations. How to keep discussion alive? Solution: Maybe create online tests per every presentation. During the online meeting ask questions or let them ask questions. In fact real-time video presentations and recording them is easier to organize but the quality is lower.
Vladimir – Online or in class course is easy, Hybrid is challenge – How to make people work in pairs in blended learning?
Vladimir – Requirements for defense?
Vladimir – New doc student – health psychology – WS or LIFE course – Designing digital services for behavioral changes.
Mikhail – Uses graphic tablet as an online white board. Lot of technical issues with blended learning. Sometimes the voice of online students is coming from the projector. Sometimes students will take over the ownership of the recorded video. Solution – be the first in the meeting room.
Tools for online collaboration:
Google Jam-board – whiteboard with sticky notes
Online whiteboard – https://whiteboardfox.com/
DesignIT – https://dt4s.e-ce.uth.gr
One issue that was not discussed – Sometimes students can’t find a link to the online meeting or class.
Next meeting Oct 22 at 14:00. Topic – (online) teaching and evaluation practices (and issues, questions, tips and tricks).
