Objective of the training programme

The objective of the training programme was to develop an existing or produce a new online implementation to be offered in the CampusOnline portal. The high-quality online implementation training was held twice in 2018, with a total of 160 teachers from different universities of applied sciences participating in the training. Additionally, the materials and content of the training have also been utilised in the internal training programmes of the universities of applied sciences. The training programme presented on this page is a summary of the training programmes carried out, the structure and materials of which can be utilised by universities of applied sciences in the planning and implementation of their own digital pedagogy training programmes.

The driving idea in the training is the quality criteria for online implementations developed as part of the eAMK project and their practical implementation. Those who participated in the training had the opportunity to apply for the CampusOnline Expert badge.

Structure of the training programme

In terms of content, the training focuses on what the quality criteria for online implementations drawn up in the project mean in practice with different implementations.
 
Training can be carried out in a variety of ways, in a guided manner or in the form of self-study. The nationwide training included:
  • five webinars presenting the quality criteria for online implementations;
  • online guidance for small groups between webinars in which the implementation of the presented quality criteria in the participants’ own online courses was discussed;
  • a face-to-face session in which the peer review of online courses against the quality criteria for online implementations was carried out;
  • a LinkedIn expert group ‘Digipeda CampusOnline, where the participants can share ideas, tips and questions;
  • intermediate assignments in which peer review and self-evaluation were carried out.
Additionally, the technical and pedagogical support services of the home UASs were utilised. The training ended in a closing webinar held after the completion of the online courses offered in the CampusOnline.fi portal, in which the preliminary results of the student feedback were presented.

Development of digital pedagogy competence – Padlet as a tool
  • Padlet, www.padlet.com
  • Create user credentials or use existing credentials (e.g. Google)  
  • Copy the Padlet template (in Finnish) https://padlet.com/marjo_joshi/eAMKDigipedavalmennus to your own Padlet desktop (Remake – copy design, copy posts)
  • Then use the Padlet template to make self-evaluation visible and to record areas of development and ideas
  • Discuss your reflections recorded in Padlet in the small group meetings. Alternatively, you can hold a discussion with the online pedagogy expert in your organisation

eAMK Open Badge Family

The eAMK project has created an Open Badge family that has been designed together with experts from different universities of applied sciences. The Open Badges created in the eAMK project are linked to the project’s content and are based on the online implementation quality criteria created in the project.
