Abstract

Educational systems worldwide are facing an enormous shift as a result of sociocultural, political, economic, and technological changes. The technologies and practices that have developed over the last decade have been heralded as opportunities to transform both online and traditional education systems. While proponents of these new ideas often postulate that they have the potential to address the educational problems facing both students and institutions and that they could provide an opportunity to rethink the ways that education is organized and enacted, there is little evidence of emerging technologies and practices in use in online education. Because researchers and practitioners interested in these possibilities often reside in various disciplines and academic departments the sharing and dissemination of their work across often rigid boundaries is a formidable task.Contributors to Emergence and Innovation in Digital Learning include individuals who are shaping the future of online learning with their innovative applications and investigations on the impact of issues such as openness, analytics, MOOCs, and social media. Building on work first published in Emerging Technologies in Distance Education, the contributors to this collection harness the dispersed knowledge in online education to provide a one-stop locale for work on emergent approaches in the field. Their conclusions will influence the adoption and success of these approaches to education and will enable researchers and practitioners to conceptualize, critique, and enhance their understanding of the foundations and applications of new technologies.

Abstract

For many learners assessment conjures up visions of red pens scrawling percentages in the top right-hand corner of exams and feelings of stress, inadequacy, and failure. Although negative student reactions to evaluation have been noted, assessment has provided educational institutions with important information about learning outcomes and the quality of education for many decades. But how accurate is this data and has it informed practice or been fully incorporated into the learning cycle? Conrad and Open argue that the potential in many of the new learning environments to alter and improve assesment has yet to be explored by educators and students. In their investigation of assessment methods and learning approaches, Conrad and Openo aim to explore assessment that engages learners and authentically evaluates education. They insist that moving to new learning environments, specifically those online and at a distance, afford educators opportunities to embrace only the most effective face-to-face assessment methods and to realize the potential of delivering education in the digital age. In this volume practitioners will find not only an indispensable introduction to new forms of assessment but also a number of best practices as described by experienced educators.

Abstract

An der Erforschung und Erprobung der mediengestützten Lern- und Arbeitsszenarien in Wissenschaft und Hochschule sind Expertinnen und Experten aus unterschiedlichsten Domänen beteiligt. Damit steht die Aktivität der Gesellschaft für Medien in der Wissenschaft (GMW) unter dem Zeichen der Interdisziplinarität. Bereits etabliert sind Fächerkombinationen wie die Mediendidaktik oder die Medieninformatik. Im wissenschaftlichen Alltag entstehen jedoch deutlich mehr interdisziplinäre Schnittstellen, deren Erörterung und Untersuchung das Thema der GMW-Tagung 2015 sind. Die Tagungsbeiträge finden sich in den Themenbereichen Digitale Medien und Interdisziplinarita¨t, Open Educational Resources, Gescha¨ftsmodelle sowie Gestaltung und Praxis wieder. Die GMW 2015 will den Diskurs zur Nutzung digitaler Medien in interdisziplinären Settings durch wissenschaftlich und praktisch fundierte Studien bereichern und konsolidieren.
