Tuesday 21 August 2018 from 2:00pm - 3:00 pm in Room 528, Education Building A35, University of Sydney

The talk is based on the paper “Analysing learning designs of 'learning through practice' as Networked Learning” by Hansen & Dohn presented at 11th International Conference on Networked Learning in Zagreb 2018. Note the room change to Room 528, Education Building A35, University of Sydney.

In this talk, Associate Professor Jens Jørgen Hansen will present a theoretical conceptualization of the ways in which learning designs organized as “learning through practice” can prepare students for future professional practice as well as facilitate different patterns of engagement and knowledge transformation. Learning designs of 'learning through practice' are distinguished by engaging practices outside the formal educational system as ways of developing curricular understanding and, reciprocally, as providing grounds for concretisation of curricular content through its enactment in practice. The different learning designs have differing potentials for supporting connection forms between learners' experiences in target practice and educational practice: Case-based learning can establish a relationship of inquiry between learner and target practice. Design-based learning can establish a relationship of innovation with the aim to support learners in developing understanding of practice through changing it. Simulation-based learning can establish a relationship of imitation of target practice and engagement in ‘as-if’ practice.

HassonJens Jørgen Hansen is an Associate professor in knowledge communication and ICT at University of Southern Denmark. His research explores learning design and how digital media can represent knowledge, support individuals’ learning and organizations’ communication and knowledge sharing. Current research areas are learning design and digital literacy in a university setting and participation in the project Designing for situated knowledge in a world of change (Led by Nina Bonderup Dohn). This project addresses the educational challenges posed by a world of constantly changing demands and has recently resulted in the book Designing for Learning in a Networked World (Dohn, Routledge 2018). Jens has contributed with the following chapters: “Design in educational research – clarifying conceptions and presuppositions” (Dohn & Hansen), “Teaching in a networked world – skills, knowledge and beliefs” (Hansen & Rosenlund), “Digital literacy – cognitive strategies, genre skills and situated practice” and “Design principles for designing simulated social practices” (Hansen & Dohn).
