Bridging the Gap--Taking the Distance out of e-Learning
Karlsudd, Peter; Tågerud, Yael
Electronic Journal of e-Learning, v6 n1 p43-52 2008
In order to promote closer relations between two existing academic environments--on-campus and distance learning--a pedagogical intervention was made aiming to raise the level of competence and awareness among faculty regarding flexible learning and the use of ICT in higher education. The intervention was a process-oriented pedagogical effort based on collaborative learning and cross-institutional cooperation. Teacher teams worked to enhance flexible learning in either new or existing courses. The intervention resulted in more teachers getting involved in flexible learning. At the same time several problems surfaced indicating the need for further competence development efforts in order to further promote flexible learning environments.
