#LTHEchat 154: Design for Active and Blended Learning with Andrew Middleton @andrewmid

Active learning embraces a number of educational theories and pedagogic strategies including problem-based learning, enquiry-based learning, project-based learning, and team-based learning. Such philosophies and approaches are often presented in binary opposition to lecturing and other teaching-led methods – approaches which are often how today’s ‘lecturers’ experienced university. In reality, active learning and blended learning are integrated amongst a range of techniques that address and involve the student in different ways. This can be different according to discipline, teacher and cohort. This melding of approaches is seen most obviously in the concept of flipped learning where essential knowledge is first provided online where it creates the basis for a deeper social exploration through vibrant class-based activities.

#LTHEchat 51: Networks of distributed creativity with Laura Gogia, Frances Bell and Catherine Cronin

We – Laura Gogia, Frances Bell and Catherine Cronin – have worked for the last year on preparing an interactive symposium for Networked Learning 2016 that looks at the Networked Learning Community in the context of other communities and networks in open and connected learning. Not wishing to confine ourselves to the face to face symposium we are reaching out to others, before, during and after.

So LTHEchat community – will you engage with us and share your ideas? Will you become nodes in this broader network? Can we become nodes in your broader networks? How do you bridge different networks and communities in which you work and learn. We want to hear your ideas and bring them to our symposium — on negotiating openness as educators and learners; blending informal and formal learning spaces; and the potential as well as the limits of the networks.. We will, of course, bring back the outcomes of the symposium that you can follow on #NLbridge (before, during and after the Networked Learning Conference) and live on #nlc2016 at our symposium in May.
