Evaluating #EduHack course on #co-creation

I’m participating an evaluation of the EduHack project under the Erasmus+ programme and the course they have developed as part of this project on various aspects of Learning and Teaching in a Digital world. You can find the course here.

I was very impressed with the design of the course, and especially its explicit link-up to the competence framework DigiCompEdu. My first impressions are that the course is well-designed to give a broad overview of the central topics concerning learning and teaching, as well as access to some relevant resources. It is all presented in a clean and concise manner.

Chosen topic: Co-creation

I chose to the topic of “Foster Knowledge Co-creation among students” for further consideration. All courses have a same structure with the sections of Read, Watch, Do and Resources.

The textual information gives a good overview of the concept of knowledge co-creation and the reasons and goals for using this process with students. It also gives some indications of academic literature and structure to use in course design.

The tools recommended are suitable for brainstorming/idea collection etc., but I wonder why other tools focussed more on writing (collaborative documents, wiki) and negotiation (voting tools?) have been excluded in this list.

The videos and the do-activity are illustrative, but I would also have preferred some reflections here from educators who have used co-creation with their students, and the challenges they have faced. For educators who want to try out student co-creation, I think this will be useful to have.

A possible extension to the course might be some way to include not only the brainstorming aspects of co-creation, but also the deeper aspects of understanding (framing, questioning, negotiation, etc.)

The additional resources are certainly an added value to the content.

The Eduhack course seems to be a good offering for educators starting off in digital teaching as well as those looking for more insight into issues concerning digital teaching.
