Motivating high levels of interaction and communication
Coaches creating opportunities
Presentation in German with running translation into English, held by Yvonne Seiler, Universität Bern, Supportstelle für ICT-gestützte Lehre und Forschung (iLUB)
Teachers have to give up control - something that does not come easy to all. In order to support the learning and let them know that they are responsible for their own progress, the teachers have to take up the role of a coach. Based on field reports conducted by teachers of the University of Bern and a social organisation based in Bern, models are being presented in which students play an active role in their own learning process and take responsibility for their own actions. The challenges that this causes for teachers and the role ILIAS plays in this will be a part of the presentation.
„The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.“ (Alexandra K. Trenfor)
Yvonne Seiler has been working at the support for ICT-based teaching and research (iLUB) at the University of Bern. Her focal points are consulting, instruction and ILIAS support. She acquired her knowledge about didactics and design during her studies as a teacher for German, art and IT (Master of Arts in Secondary Education) and her teaching position for adults in Multimedia and New Media. The direct contact to users is absolutely vital to her and also becomes obvious in the interest for usability and interaction design.
