Chahira's Presentation Topic
„Will you draw me a sheep?“ Understanding incentives, myths and visions about digital collaborative teaching and learning in higher education
When looking at collaboration in teaching and learning across higher education institutions, in particular in Europe, there is no doubt that the implementation of digital formats has played a key role both in strengthening existing partnerships or in the building new ones. What about co-teaching, though? Do digital formats live up to the expectations of making development of teaching methods, material and formats much more successful? How do we measure the success of collaborative teaching and learning scenarios in the current university landscape? What are some of the misconceptions about collaborative teaching and learning? Why do the different perspectives of everyone involved in such an endeavour count? This is an invitation to explore and understand different perspectives and essential milestones necessary to build and expand a favourable ecosystem and environment to support meaningful collaborative teaching and learning scenarios with digital formats.
