5 tips how to set up Online teaching sustainably! (part 2/5)


Design contemporary scenarios for online teaching

Today we present you the 2nd scenario:

  1. Classic scenario
  2. Entry online scenario
  3. Blended learning scenario
  4. Co-creative scenario
  5. Collaborative scenario 4.0

2. Entry-level online scenario

The starting point in the second scenario is no longer pure classroom teaching, but a mixture of classroom and online. Actually, we are playing out an entry-level online scenario here, which classical educational institutions could have prepared in peace long ago, if they had taken care of it in time … 😉

In this scenario, traditional teaching is supplemented by temporary online phases, something that some educational institutions are already practicing. What distinguishes our entry-level scenario from classic e-learning? This is not just working with file storage and assignment submission, but practicing “real online learning”.

In this scenario, teachers continuously accompany their learners in their asynchronous online work. Not by guiding them step by step, but by creating a conceptual framework within which learners can (a) know what to do and b) when they can reach and speak to whom and how.

Then you meet again in a certain rhythm in presence, work there in depth, coordinate and then go back to the online phase.

Here, too, there can be a kind of written exam at the end in the form of (several ?) online tests, which can perhaps be interpreted as serving more to orient the learners than to test knowledge. Alternatively, group work may be presented and discussed in the final meeting. There are many ways to conceptualize the scenario here.

Once this type of online learning has been practiced on all sides, it is quite easy to switch completely to “online” in the Corona case, because “only” the presence phases have to be set up alternatively. In particular, converting face-to-face teaching to an online format is a bit more involved at first, but allows for greater flexibility later once the formats are developed. Should it then one day be possible to hold face-to-face events again, the actual “added value” of presence can easily be played out on this basis. Then the format turns around, so to speak. Presence then becomes the exception and online the rule. And that pleases most, because they save themselves a lot of unnecessary trips.
