The online programme is divided into two modules and each is addressing one educational challenge:
Module 1: Meaningful technology use in education - Challenge: How can we engage digital technologies in meaningful ways?
- Educational video
- Video as a tool for reflection
- Collaborative video annotation.
Module 2: Pedagogy in the XXI Century - Challenge: How can pedagogy respond to the ongoing digital transformations in society?
- Digital pedagogy
- Digital literacy
- Collaborative learning.
In addition to webinars, group-works and individual assignments under the guidance of our best professors, the summer university course will be completed by a round table conversation with a educational technologists. The roundtable will provide the opportunity for the students to see how educational technology is incorporated in concrete educational settings.
Upon completing the programme the student:
- is familiar with new technology and methodology in education and knows how to apply some in their work;
- knows the development of online education/educational technology/technology-enhanced learning;
- applies theories and ideas of education to his/her work;
- critically analyses the challenges and complexity of technology use in education.
At least two weeks before, you will receive an email with the welcome information, detailed programme, and practical information. We will use the flipped classroom approach, which means that webinars are introduced by videos and/or readings that the participants are supposed to review beforehand.
The webinars start after 16.00h (Estonian time) and all meetings will be recorded so that they can be reviewed afterwards.
