CEMUS Course Assembly 1: workshop focused on course concept(s), outline and structure, with Ewa Livmar, Zoom: https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/62493680527. We will discuss themes and content as well as the role that different type of content plays in courses. We will also discuss online vs. campus format in CEMUS education.

Purpose:
to look at course content in several ways:

  • content in relation to previous year´s course (what to keep, what to bring in new),
  • content in relation to other courses at CEMUS (synergies, necessary overlaps, unnecessary overlaps)
  • but also to relate course content to the wider field/area of sustainability – what themes, current events and content do we cover well at CEMUS (and how) and what are the themes that are underrepresented in our courses (and why).
  • How do we follow/develop our educational model during uncertainty? (covid, campus, online etcetera)

Hopefully we can also find inspiration to bring in new content in courses, where it fits course syllabus and descriptions.

“Tips & Tools for Online Education” workshop with Emmy Pater, Zoom: https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/63706343425 for anyone at CEMUS interested in learning more about the digital learning environment. The workshop will focus on online methods and tools for active participation, with opportunities for sharing best practices and getting hands-on experience.

Jamboard
I would love to hear before hand: what do you want to learn more about, with regards to online education? Which technology or feature are you curious about? Please add it to the Jamboard: https://tinyurl.com/cemusonline, by 27th November.

Content
My own ideas for the session are to cover both technology for active student engagement and pedagogic approaches for online education. For technology, I can go through Zoom features and best practices, Studium features for active student participation, look at some external platforms for interactive activities (Kahoot, Menti, Jamboard, Padlet). We can also discuss less ‘technological’ topics related to online education: the renewed role of podcasts, pedagogic concepts like Flipped Classroom, establishing class ‘rules’ for the digital environment, and how to create a sense of community with online education.

Why me?
I’m offering this workshop out of my personal interest in effective online facilitation, as I am taking several trainings about how to host powerful online events in my free time. In addition, our goal with the Global Challenges course this year was to boost the active student participation despite being online, which has given me insights in what does and does not work in the digital classroom.

Looking forward to diving deeper into the digital sphere with you all!

The focus for this assembly is constructive alignment, assessment and creating an examination structure for your course. You can find resources for assessment (eg. examples of grading matrixes) in the course coordinator guide folder in Box. Attached in the email from Alexis is also a chapter about assessment from a book exploring the concept of Community of inquiry. It’s a model that offers good support for the way we approach education at CEMUS.

Hybrid teaching – challenges and opportunities with Suzanne Pathkiller, Division for Quality Enhancement, Academic Teaching and Learning UU, Zoom: https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/65094589444

For many teachers the learning environment looks very different to what it did a year ago. Some students are participating remotely via Zoom, while others are in the classroom, but physically distanced. A hybrid course integrates online and face-to-face instruction, planning interactions based upon intended learning outcomes and proven teaching practices. In this seminar participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences. We will also look at various course modalities and discuss strategies for equitable and inclusive teaching in the hybrid environment.

TUR Ethics Seminar with Archbishop Antje Jackelén: Technology becomes smarter by theology and philosophy, Zoom: https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/64774498812

The development of smart technologies such as 3D Printing, AI and Big Data is promising, but it needs to include the subject traditions that have centuries of experience and competence to reflect on questions about the meaning and aim of everything. In this lecture, Archbishop Antje Jackelén shows why the insights of theology and philosophy cannot be reduced to decoration in the final stages of development, but is something that needs to be integrated into the process from the beginning. Bio: Antje Jackelén is Archbishop of the Church of Sweden since June 2014 and before that bishop of The Diocese of Lund. She received her doctorate at Lund University and has served as professor of systematic theology with a focus on religion and science at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, USA, where she also was director of the Zygon Center for Religion and Science. Archbishop Jackelén is an honorary doctor at the University of Greifswald, at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and at Virginia Theological Seminary. Her latest book is God is Greater (Fortress Press 2020).
