Join ONL172

Welcome to sign up for ONL172 starting in September

The next iteration of Open Networked Learning, ONL172, will start in September 2017! We are preparing for another exciting course and hope you will join us.

Would you like to;

  • Learn about how you can create collaborative and flexible learning environments online?
  • Learn about using Problem Based Learning in an open setting?
  • Extend your professional network?
  • Try different digital tools and methods in a pedagogical context?
  • Get updated on research and trends in online learning?

If yes – here’s a course for you!

ONL is aimed at teachers, educational developers, learning technologists and course designers in Higher Education, who want to develop teaching using digital tools and learning environments.

The course gives opportunity to explore and try collaborative learning in an open online learning environment with colleagues from different universities, disciplines and cultures (nationally as well as internationally).
ONL172 is offered by Karolinska Institutet, Lund University, Linnaeus University, Stockholm University, Luleå University of Technology, Linköping University  (Sweden), Arcada University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and Independent Institute of Education (IIE) (South Africa) in collaboration.

If you are interested to join, please read more about How to participate and course requirements.

The course warmly welcomes learners from other universities and contexts!

Open invitation to collaborate!
We would welcome other Higher Education institutions, both nationally and internationally, to collaborate with us in this course. If you are interested in including your learners in the PBL groups, the idea is that you also supply a group facilitator for each five/six learners from your institution.

Please get in touch with the ONL team for further discussion!

The ONL course is an open educational resource, licensed under Creative Commons, and you are most welcome to use material, the design or the whole course it at your institution without participating in the PBL part with us. In that case, please register and follow the course as open learners, take part of all the material and participate in the synchronous activities (webinars and tweet chats) to your liking.
