Session 4C: In vivo

Increased digitisation of learning environments in undergraduate and graduate level

Quality, communication and learning are the key areas of the initiative In vivo for 2014-2017. It strategically aims to implement digital support in education and teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels in order to enhance student centred learning.

In vivo is run by the Centre for Learning and Knowledge (CLK) in cooperation with students, teachers and administrators.

Through the various sub-projects In vivo tries to enable digitisation of educational development and support. The starting point is to support, for example, students, teachers and administrators in planning, implementation and evaluation of learning, teaching and training.

To keep Karolinska Institutet as an attractive learning environment and to meet the requirements of the students of tomorrow, digital support is necessary. Virtual and physical learning environments have to integrate to create new opportunities for collaboration and lifelong learning. Karolinska Institutet needs to take a holistic approach and upgrade its infrastructure to meet the needs expressed by students, teachers and administrators.

Sub-projects like e-examination, e-portfolio and the procurement of a new learning management system are at the focus of In vivo right now.

At the Educational Congress, In vivo would like to discuss the following questions with the participants:

  • What does student centred learning mean when looking at e-learning?
  • What does blended learning mean for students and teachers?
  • Is it easier to use social media compared with the systems a university offers? Why? Why not?
