Open Networked Learning (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 the 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).

Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CeUL) offers teachers at Stockholm University to participate in the course as a continuation course on pedagogy in higher education. There are only 12 spaces on the course for teachers at Stockholm University.

Participants at the ONL Stockholm University course will, under the supervision of a CeUL educational developer, attend the open course and certain specified course requirements will have to be completed.

The course requirements are basically to follow the open course; participate in a PBL group, do regular writings of reflective blog posts and write a summative final reflection on own learning and future practice. It is possible to combine this course with other duties as the online seminars will be recorded and you and your group decide when you will have your online meetings.

You will study in mixed groups with learners from other institutions. Participants from Stockholm University will, in addition to the common ONL activities, also form a Stockholm University group with opportunities to meet in real life at the university campus and there will be a Google+ community with university specific information and possibilities for discussions.

The workload is equivalent to 2 full weeks, 3 ECTS credits (hp).
