With the motivation below, the Board of Higher education decided to appoint the team Maria Kvarnström and Lars Uhlin for the course ”Open Networked Learning” as KIs candidate to the central prize committee:
The ONL course has been developed over the last three years, starting with a pilot in 2013. It is a national and international interprofessional collaborative project for the professional development of trainers, involving new techniques and developing new pedagogics for working in an international environment. It is an innovative development project where intercultural communication is a natural component, with the aim of developing strategies for e-learning through international collaboration. The target group is interprofessional; teaching staff/practitioners, ICT technicians, researchers and educational developers. Through this project, there is a potential of reaching/developing Internationalisation at Home, IaH for many students at KI, as well as students in other higher education institutions nationally and internationally. The course uses a learning by doing approach where teachers learn how to leveragehe benefits of e-learning.
