OPALESCE meeting in Paderborn

The OPALESCE Meeting in Paderborn, Germany was really successful. The partners discussed on the concrete design of the Learning Units. Therefore, we reflected the way how to create films, texts, tasks and assessments. The first impressions of the Learning Units are already finished and the are already amazing. Now, the partners have to create the tool and the elements of the learning units in a more specific way. The meeting was an important step of the project and all partners are very happy with the results.

OPALESCE is becoming bigger

In the last week we had several discussions on OPALESCE and the structure of learning units.
Every time the teacher, educators, students and researchers were really impressed about the project and the results on the structure of learning units. Moreover, a teacher from a German school in Cologne pointed out that the idea of creating a tool for senior also offers the possibility to use this tool as well for younger learners. For teacher it would be a great opportunity to use a tool like this, due to the fact that usually a teacher or trainer has not enough time to create things like this without such a tool support. “OPALESCE in teaching and learning situations at schools helps to enhance quality in teaching and supports teachers”, said Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner in this context.

Great feedback on the learning structure of OPALESCE

Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner presented the learning structure of OPALESCE to scientist and learners at a meeting in Cologne at the end of November 2015. The feedback was really great and positive.

“It is important to create a clear structure for micro units and learning nuggets. This helps the learners and provides them with orientation in their learning process.” explained Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner.
