Call for idea proposals on online/blended learning, dl is April 21st, 2017

In January 2016, Aalto launched a new strategic development project, Aalto Online Learning, A!OLE.

In essence, A!OLE seeks to build pioneering online/blended learning experiences at Aalto University with improved learning results.

We call now for idea proposals from all Aalto people (faculty, program directors, researchers, staff, students) on online/blended learning. The best ideas will be selected and people involved invited to join the A!OLE Coaching Network. The network provides support on design, technology and pedagogy for you to realise the proposed idea in practice. After the evaluation of the ideas we can also discuss on funding to allow for full concentration on developing the idea to reality.

This may include funding in two phases. Seed funding will allow exploring and identifying appropriate tools, technologies, existing online resources and pedagogical principles on which to build a new A!OLE  pilot. A part of seed funded phase is also to discover options for collaboration with existing A!OLE pilots.  

Seed funding is meant for preparing a better informed proposal in terms of the schedule and budget to support  implementing the pilot idea. After this phase, augmented proposals need still to be separately accepted, but with a high potential for acceptance.

It is, however, also possible to submit a complete proposal with the implementation budget, if appropriate details are presented already in the submitted form. The idea proposals are continuously evaluated as they arrive until April 21st, 2017, the final deadline for this round of proposals.

The proposal must be submitted using a google form (Aalto Google services):

 [email protected] on May 30th as part of the Aalto Festival will bring Aalto people together to get inspired and share experiences about the future of learning. Save the date! Read more >>
