E-Learning: didactic models and strategies

FCE Europaclub 

  • Title: E-Learning: didactic models and strategies
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN) – other language/s used during the training: German; Italian; Spanish
Preparation* “Sapienza” University / Rome. The course is planned for people interested in developing theoretical and practical knowledge and skills about e-learning didactic models and strategies. The knowledge how to work with a computer is required – but you do not need to be an informatics specialist, the course is manageable for everybody! The complete course lasts 25 hours.
The preparation work will be done on the e-learning platforms La “Sapienza” University of Rome. There, the course materials are provided. The participants will be able to access them by entering their personal password. They should start thematic discussions in the web forum of the platform with the help of a tutor. All participants will receive documents with basic definitions and descriptions for doing their preparation work.
Objectives* The main topic of the course concerns the development of a knowledge of the principal e-learning didactic models,  methods and techniques  and how to apply them in an e-learning courseware. You will learn the didactic use of the tools of an e-learning platform (i.e., for example, web forum, chat, virtual classroom, etc), and how to manage them to build cooperative didactic

You will produce didactical activities on a LCMS (such as opening of a web forum, activities of monitoring and evaluation of an e-course, etc.). One important issue of this course is to develop the knowledge and the skills to handle the didactic communication in an e-learning course.

Methodology* During the course participants attend classroom lessons containing practical exercises (and group work).
The course provides blended learning with content provided on an e-learning platform of the association
(mainly used for preparation work) and classroom-teaching (theory and tutored practical lessons). The
approach adopted in the training activities will be inherited by the so called “Social constructivist pedagogy”
(after Jean Piaget, Seymour Papert and after “social constructionism theories”) as described in the description
of the Moodle server accomplished by very straight classroom-teaching. Lessons are always assisted by
special trainers that are specialists in training as well as in creating multimedia and interactive content.
The access to the e-learning platform of the association during the preparation phase and afterwards offers a
special forum
– to exchange experiences or to ask questions to the tutors
– to maintain in contact with other participants
Follow-up* For all participants it is a good idea to stay in touch with their colleagues from the course and to build up
contacts with the teachers from other countries and regions. This includes
• access to the knowledge base of the association
• access to the WEB-Blog about “advanced training”
• a regularly newsletter system
– to exchange experience or to ask questions
– to stay in touch with other participants
Also the news forum will be used to exchange experience, to ask for solutions of posted problems.
