Parallel session 1 - Inspirational sessions 9:30-9:50

Does quizzing during recorded video lectures improve learning?

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Maria Juul Hansen, Postdoc at Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences

Worldwide universities were forced to move most teaching online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has increased the amount of recorded video lectures which has removed an essential part of students’ learning, namely the chance to ask questions during the lecture and hence get instant feedback on their level of understanding. I have investigated how use of online quiz tools during recorded videos may affect learning.

Experiences with activation of students during online teaching

Language: EnglishA1-01.14 (upstairs)

Anja Varmløse Strath, Assistant Professor at Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

During the Covid 19 epidemic restrictions, rules and conditions for the teaching changed rapidly and teachers therefore had very short time limits to make the transitions enabling completion of the courses. This meant that there was only time for making smaller changes and adaptations in lectures and exercises.

In this presentation, you will learn how Anja Varmløse Strathe tried to make adaptions of lectures and exercises in two different courses for bachelor and master students in the Animal Science education. How can students be activated? How do you avoid screen fatigue? In which ways can break out rooms be used?

A social media-based role-play: Health promotion and misinformation on social media

Language: EnglishA1-01.15 (upstairs)

Dan Wolf Meyrowitsch, Associate Professor, Department of Public Health, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

An example of a social media-based role-play applied as a learning tool. The play was used in a course on strategies in health promotion and disease prevention. The course was part of the MSc Global Health program at Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen. The aim of this exercise was to engage the course participants in a battle on social media with pre-defined teams and respective positions in order to gain practical experience within this field. The players were instructed to make use of and operationalize various theoretical concepts of relevance for promotion of health science-related arguments on online platforms.

The presentation is broadcasted.

Parallel session 2 - Inspirational sessions 9:55-10:15

Immersive and interactive VR for science learning-teaching: lessons learnt (broadcast)

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Prajakt Pande, Postdoc at Department of People and Technology (DPT), Center for Virtual Learning Technologies, RUC

Immersive virtual reality (VR) shows great promise as a pedagogical tool in STEM education. However, recent research problematises: (i) the overall inconclusiveness of studies on the effectiveness of VR environments, (ii) challenges involved in the classroom-level implementation of VR (due to e.g. associated costs, technical requirements), and importantly, (iii) under-utilisation of the potentials of VR technology (e.g. affordances) by most of the learning environments available today. These issues are considered critical to VR's success (or failure) as an educational technology. In this talk, I will discuss some of my own research in order to touch upon these issues, and indicate how some of them can be addressed.

The presentation is broadcasted.

Online fieldwork: Field-based teaching activities in the wake of Covid-19

Language: EnglishA1-01.14 (upstairs)

Manja Hoppe Andreasen, Assistant Professor, Tenure Track, at Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Faculty of Science

The Covid-19 pandemic poses serious challenges to field-based teaching activities in geography, as well as other disciplines with a strong tradition for fieldwork. Drawing on key insights from the scientific literature on online fieldwork in geography teaching and research, this presentation will discuss the challenges and opportunities of online methodologies in field-based teaching and propose measures to support students in pursuing online fieldwork.

Thinking outside the classroom: Asynchronous learning activities to support the social dimension of learning

Language: EnglishA1-01.15 (upstairs)

Nicole Schmitt, Professor MSO, Vice-Head of Department for Education, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medical Sciences

One could easily argue that most learning actually happens outside the classroom, e.g. in study groups. However, first year students (as well as older students returning from lock-down) may find it difficult to (re)establish study groups. In this experiment, Nicole Schmitt aimed to facilitate students’ interaction outside the classroom by a gamification approach – self-organized student groups should walk, run or bike content covered in Nicole’s lectures (e.g. cell components, chromosomes, etc.) whilst tracking their routes with GPS. The resulting figures and figure legends are uploaded to a padlet in Absalon and awards will be given in several categories.

Parallel Session 3 - Inspirational sessions 10:35-10:55

Collaborative Mindmaps in the Class Room

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Martina Koegeler-Abdi, Postdoc, the SAXO-Institute, Faculty of Humanities

I used padlet to enable student collaboration in the classroom on an interactive mindmap. I will share my experience of how I activated students in a history class to help them analyze the different conceptualizations of race in Germany before, during and after Hitler. The joint production of the mindmap in padlet structured their group work and facilitated collaboration, while developing presentation material and documentation of their learning outcomes at the same time..

Active Learning spaces in Absalon

Language: EnglishA1-01.14 (upstairs)

Tina Møller Sørensen, Assistant Professor, Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, Faculty of Medical Sciences

Absalon presents many options for active learning both synchronously during teaching sessions and between teaching sessions. In this inspirational session, Tina Møller Sørensen will show her course room, including introductory videos, quizzes and other active elements giving you an insight view of how Absalon can be used actively in a clinical course with a large number of students.

Inspiration for better powerpoint presentations

Language: EnglishA1-01.15 (upstairs)

Gert K. Nielsen, Visual consultant, COBL, Faculty of Medical Sciences

Learn visual and cognitive techniques, which you can use to develop slides that enhance the teaching and learning experience. This is a short version with the highlights from some of Gert’s previous powerpoint workshops, including the rule of 4, Goldilocks and Rudolph the rednosed reindeer.

Parallel Session 4 - Workshops 11:00-11:50

Workshop: Keeping up the pace. How to ensure active learning spaces for teachers

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Nicole Schmitt, Professor MSO, Vice-Head of Department for Education, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medical Sciences

When we ask our students, what characterizes a good teacher, the most frequent message is: the teacher is engaged and pedagogical. The Ministerial Order for Academic Staff at Universities requires that employees involved in teaching activities continuously maintain and develop their pedagogical-didactic competences. Seeing this requirement as an opportunity for our own livelong learning whilst being aware of that time is a limiting factor for all teachers, we delve into how to nurse our engagement as teachers. With focus on solutions, we brainstorm and discuss how create active learning spaces and motivation for ourselves.

Workshop: Marsbasen - creating authentic learning through narrative based teaching designs

Language: EnglishA1-01.14 (upstairs)

Jesper Bruun, Associate Professor, Karen Alavi, Research Assistant,  & Viktor Holm-Janas, Research Assistant, Department of Science Education, Faculty of Science

A digital game platform with various inquiry based activities in an authentic blended-learning context. Students are mostly formatively assessed.

Via "non-threatening" assessment in game students freely test ideas. A class begged to redo a mission.

Improve your powerpoint – hands-on workshop

Language: EnglishA1-01.15 (upstairs)

Gert K. Nielsen, Visual consultant, COBL, Faculty of Medical Sciences

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to apply the visual techniques, which will bring the inspirational powerpoint rules to life and improve your slides as a visual tool. The workshop will consist of different hands-on exercises in powerpoint, so please bring your laptop to the workshop.

The workshop builds upon the visual and cognitive techniques for powerpoint presentations, which have been introduced in the inspirational session and in previous workshops by Gert, so we recommend attending this before this workshop.

Plenary Sessions - 12:30-13:30

Digital lessons learned

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Ayo Wahlberg, Professor MSO, Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Social Sciences

While the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digitalization in many ways, how much of what we have learned remains relevant when teaching on campus? In this talk, I reflect on how best to capitalize on the digital skills that the pandemic has engendered among staff at the Department of Anthropology.

Main points from the evaluations of online teaching at UCPH

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Maria Hvid Stenalt, Postdoc, Department of Science Education, Faculty of Science

Maria Hvid Stenalt will present the newest evaluation results regarding the online education at UCPH and elaborate on what the online education looked like during spring 2021. This will serve as a starting point for discussing the next steps in making education more digitalized – i.e. what do the evaluations indicate that it takes to further develop the digital/online education.

Parallel Session 5 - Inspirational sessions 14:00-14:20

Can flipping your classroom be flipping good?

Language: EnglishFestauditoriet (A1-01.01)

Thomas Jepps, Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medical Sciences

For tutorial (SAU24) online teaching during COVID-19, I made short lecture videos for the students to watch before class and produced worksheets for the students to discuss in breakout rooms during our lesson time. Once we returned to teaching in-person, I have continued to use my videos and worksheets, thereby implementing a flipped classroom. In this talk, I will discuss the pros and cons of a flipping your classroom for in-person teaching based on my experiences. Overall, you will hear how a flipped classroom can be flipping good, but there are pitfalls, which can be addressed by the teacher but some that need addressing at an institutional level.

Open Educational Resources (OER) - kvalitetssikring, deling og genbrug af undervisningsmaterialer

Language: EnglishA1-01.14 (upstairs)

Julie Kiersgaard Lyngsfeldt, Information Specialist, KUB Nord, & Maria Minard, Special Consultant, Education & Students, University Education Data and Systems

KUs oer.ku.dk er et digitalt bibliotek som indeholder undervisnings-, lærings- og forskningsmateriale i form af videoer, audio og billeder. Målet med OER at have fokus på uddannelse og læring, samt genbruge viden af høj faglig kvalitet.

Inspiration to improve your Absalon course room

Language: EnglishA1-01.14 (upstairs)

Anne Nørremølle, Associate Professor, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Tore Tvarnø Lind, Associate Professor, Faculty of Humanities, & Rasmus Bonnesen, Special Consultant, Faculty of Humanities

Feedback from students have shown a need to align and structure Absalon course rooms more consistently, to clarify learning tasks and communication. A clearly structured course rooms can benefit both students and teachers, making it is easy to follow the progression of the course and find relevant course materials. A central project at KU aims at improving all course rooms in Absalon. In this inspirational session, you will see two good examples of how course rooms are set up in Absalon, followed by a facilitated discussion with room for questions.
