9:00-10:00: OVERCOMING MOST  TYPICAL CHALLENGES IN BECOMING AN ONLINE/BLENDED LEARNING TEACHER

Mikko Rönkkö

Associate professor, School of Business and Economics, University of Jyväskylä.

Educational designers report that many teachers struggle with getting started with blended and online learning. A key problem is that converting an existing course to an online/blended learning one might seem daunting. Indeed, the teacher's lack of time is seen as a major barrier to implementing online/blended learning.

In this talk, Dr. Rönkkö discusses how he overcame these problems and was able to convert most of his teaching portfolio, which contains entrepreneurship and research methods courses, to an online/blended learning format. In addition to teaching at different universities, Dr. Rönkkö provides free teaching on YouTube, where his channel is approaching 10k followers and 1M views. During the talk, he shares what he has found to work and what he thinks should be avoided.

11:00-12:00: THE GOALS, CHALLENGES, AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF CHARM-EU COOPERATION CONCERNING INTER-UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

Márta Turcsányi-Szabó

Dean's Commissionaire for Educational Innovation, ELTE Faculty of Informatics

CHARM-EU (CHallenge-driven, Accessible, Research-based, Mobile European University), which now has expanded to CHARM-EIGHT was co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme, between the University of Barcelona (coordinator), Trinity College Dublin, Utrecht University, the University of Montpellier,  Eötvös Loránd University Budapest, Åbo Akademi University, Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg, Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences and the University of Bergen.

 

The talk will elaborate on how CHARM-EU has been building up a deep and successful collaboration between its partners that resulted in designing several innovative tools, models, programmes and practices, one of them being the first accredited Master’s degree programme (Master’s in Global Challenges for Sustainability). The alliance has brought together academic staff of different disciplines and universities, engaged external stakeholders and developed a governance model with innovative administrative structures supported by core values: inclusive, student-focused, socially responsible, sustainable, innovative, transparent and transdisciplinary.

What is Erasmus Portfolio Project:

The PORTFOLIO project aims to provide HEIs with evidence-based knowledge and know-how concerning digital transformation, inter-connected higher education systems, and innovative learning and teaching practices via designing and implementing a distributed and blended European Entrepreneurship Minor (Distributed Minor) whose twice-iterated blended execution and testing will allow us to develop a Framework and tools for implementing innovative teaching and learning practices.
