Fostering Dialogue and Interaction in Massively Asynchronous Learning Environments

Introduction: Fostering Dialogue and Interaction in Massively Asynchronous Learning Environments This Design Studio session focused on  massively asynchronous learning environments. Our goal, as always, is to work together collaboratively to develop a shareable learning environment model (LEM). While our previous Design Studio sessions have dealt with specific pedagogies and strategies for smaller environments, in this workshop we decided to address a popular, larger environment type, the massively asynchronous learning environment. Specifically, we wanted to  different ways to design massively asynchronous spaces, digital and analog, in ways that lead to effective learning for a significant percentage of participants. Watch the...

Designing Personal Learning Environments

Introduction: Designing Personal Learning Environments This Design Studio session focused on personal learning environments. Our goal, as always, was to work together collaboratively to develop a shareable learning environment model (LEM). While our previous Design Studio sessions have dealt with strategies for group instruction, in this workshop we decided to design something a bit different — a personal learning environment. We wanted to  explore how individual instructors and designers organize their own learning, and look for possible models from those experiences that might apply to their formal course design.

Creating Blended Learning Environments

Introduction: Creating Blended Learning Environments This Design Studio session focused on blended learning, Our goal, as always, was to work together collaboratively to develop a shareable learning environment model (LEM). Blended, or hybrid learning is one of the more interesting evolutions of our learning environment models that have been influenced by the advent of the Internet and the rise of digital media. In many ways, blended learning is a model designed to answer questions about learning optimization. For example, how can we extend the learning process to take advantage of a learner’s time spent outside the classroom? In some...

Creating Learning Environments Based on Feedback Experiences

We had another terrific turnout for our second Design Studio session event, and were able to create another sharable Learning Environment Model (LEM) pattern that anyone can use. Since a majority of the session participants were already familiar with the format and process (including Bucky and Rob), we were able to move quickly into the fun of our collaborative design work. Design Studio Sessions Are Like a Mac Davis Song  Improv In reality, our Design Studio sessions are like a big improv activity. We start with a blank canvas and have absolutely no idea what ideas participants will come...

Incorporating Open Content in Project-Based Learning Environments

We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout or experience for our first Design Session Studio event. Attendance exceeded our expectations, and everyone warmed quickly to the collaborative design format. But first, a bit about the learning environment… Naturally, when you design a virtual, collaborative event about learning environment design you have certain expectations about the performance of the environment. And even though we had planned and rehearsed with the technology, there were plenty of unknowns with regards to how collaborative the session would actually be. We had a number of questions about the design of the virtual learning...
