iEarth Digital Learning Forum – Bjarte Hannisdal
Thursday 22nd of April we heared from Progress Domain leader 1, Bjarte Hannisdal. His talk was titled: Earth Science Education: how do we connect the dots?
“The iEarth vision is to build an earth science education for the future. We want to engage students, instructors, institutions and societal stakeholders in this transformation process. Here I will discuss how we can work towards this ambitious goal, introducing a purpose-built infrastructure that helps us capture the complexity of teaching and learning by literally connecting the dots. This infrastructure will be built as a collaborative effort through qualitative processes of systematic observation and analysis. Its purpose is not automation, but rather to support more and better interactions and discussions about teaching and learning. I will illustrate how we aim to use this new framework for teaching development, analysis and redesign, and as a catalyst of community engagement.”
