Aalto Online Learning - a pathway to reforming education at the Aalto University

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Why is it essential to enrich learning experiences at a university by moving online? What should a university do to reshape its offerings to better fit online learning settings? How to create communities of teachers to facilitate learning about online tech and pedagogy from peers? Who should be involved? In this paper we discuss these questions that have been addressed by the Aalto
Online Learning (A!OLE) project to initiate a path for a culture shift in the Aalto University to offer significantly more online/blended learning options for our students. We discuss this from various angles, ranging from the strategic decision to invest in online learning development (motivation), to community building and mutual coaching, and finally to dissemination of best practices for
producing online learning resources as university wide shared activities.
