Abstract [en]

The use of blended learning environments in higher education has rapidly increased in the 21st century, but if the term also should include blended student groups there is a need for redesign of existing learning spaces. Today many universities give courses and programmes for a mix of campus students and distance participants. There are several research studies reporting on the benefits of blended learning environments for universities and students, while there are less reports on the teacher view of blended learning design.

This study has the aim to describe, evaluate and discuss the design of selected active learning spaces from a teacher perspective. The main research question to answer is: “How should the new learning spaces be designed to support a student centred instructional design for blended student groups?”.   The overall research strategy was a case study gathering data in a mix of observations, semi-structured interviews and document studies.

Findings indicate that the new design of classrooms and lecture halls is a step in the right direction opening up new possibilities for active learning. However, there still exist needs for further refinement and teacher training.

Abstract [en]

Learning to program has been classified as problematic learning with high drop‐outrates and low motivation at university level. Like the learning of a natural language thelearning of syntax and basic techniques in a programming language is easier and more naturalif started at a younger age. This study is based on an evaluation of a pilot project for studentsin a Primary school where computational thinking and programming concepts have beenintroduced as play‐based learning. Students have learnt concepts such as ‘Bubble sort’ byplaying the algorithm without any computer. Later the learnt concepts and algorithms havebeen implemented with Scratch and the Python programming language as main tools.The aim of the study is to describe and discuss a model for implementing computationalthinking and programming for fifth grade students by play‐based learning. As the overallresearch strategy the case study approach was used to evaluate this pilot project. Data hasbeen collected in a combination of observations, interviews and group discussions during a 15session pilot course and three workshops on teacher training. Findings have been analysedthematically and presented using the SWOT framework to identify and discuss strengths,weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the Östersund model.Learning outcomes of the pilot were promising but with individual variations in the studentgroup. The idea of introducing programming and computational thinking as early as in primaryschool seems like a good idea, but the recommendation is to keep sessions play‐based andwith enjoyment as the key feature to engage primary school students. Conducted sessions inthe pilot are worth replicating and so are the teacher training workshops. However, thechallenge that remains is to create a sustainable and scalable implementation of the describedmodel including primary school teachers’ professional development.

Abstract [en]

Planning for regional security and crisis management could be supported by well performed exercises. These exercises should be evaluated from different views in order to investigate the participants learning from the exercise. Since the evaluation seldom rest upon established learning theories it will be difficult to evaluate if the exercise will lead to the stated goals. Authorities in the counties of Jämtland and Västernorrland, intend to implement such exercise spring, 2016. The Theme for the exercise is “Flooding” - “Höga flöden” based on a scenario describing extremely high rainfall which could affect hydroelectric dams. The authorities should act and collaborate based on local crisis plans and how the scenario changes over time. We intend to use the Community of inquiry model when evaluating how the participants act, reflect and learn from the exercise. The Community of inquiry (CoI) model consists of three elements: social presence, cognitive presence and teaching presence. The model assumes that learning occurs within the Community through the interaction of this three core elements.  We intend to use a validated version of a survey instrument connected to the CoI model (Arbaugh et al, 2008). Hence, the aim of this paper is to propose an evaluation method to evaluate levels of communities in regional exercises.

Abstract [en]

Crisis management training software is gaining researchers' as well as practitioners' interest. In order to truly support organizations it is important that such software responds to actual user needs. The aim of this study is to compare existing initiative described in research with the needs of the users and to identify possible research directions for forthcoming studies. The literature review shows that discussions on users' needs are superficial at best. The software described in research mainly focus on co-located execution of exercises, often in the form of simulations. Furthermore, a "right or wrong" behavior is usually built-in. Empirical data from a web survey indicate that flexibility in time and space during training is a fundamental user need. This is not particularly acknowledged in earlier research. Neither is the users' wish for better support in designing exercises. We propose that system flexibility, modularity and pedagogy for computer based crisis training are urgent issues for future research.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present best practices and areas of improvement in Technical Communication (TC) analyzed with Lean values as a base. The purpose is also to analyze the results from a holistic perspective using the Synergy-4 model, a multi-perspective approach which considers four different spheres of an organization at a time in order to discover synergies.

Methodology/Approach: To fulfill the purpose, 15 interviews in four different companies were conducted. These were then analyzed and the results were categorized into a number of predefined Lean areas. The results from the Lean values were then further analyzed with the Synergy-4 model as a base.

Findings: Taking a Lean perspective could enhance the status of TC with regard to finding ways to incorporate the customer’s voice more clearly when it comes to strengthening the role of TC. The result from the analyses indicates that Lean and Synergy-4 can enrich each other.

Abstract

One purpose of higher education is to prepare students for a modern and ever-changing global society with increasing complexity and collaborative environments. Scrum is a widely used framework for project management dealing with development of complex products. Few studies have been made on the use of Scrum in higher education. This study examines to what extent distributed Scrum can support online collaborative learning, more exactly what are the advantages and drawbacks on distributed Scrum from a student perspective. Twenty students in an online course has participated in Scrum projects as members in distributed teams. Student’s perceptions was captured using semi-structured interviews. The preliminary results indicate that students are satisfied with Scrum and that they experience a high degree of flexibility. The transparency in Scrum is perceived as a key to open communication and effective collaboration.
