This project evaluated online teaching and learning activities and the current practice of using knowledge clips as well the number of actual contact hours. Based on the outcomes of the study we share several recommendation on how to balance face-to-face with online activities. Within the bachelor food technology programme we have been implementing knowledge clips since 2015 and other electronic/…

The core of course design is selecting Teaching and Learning Activities (TLAs). Media for TLAs are increasingly supplemented with online media like knowledge clips. Knowledge clips can be valuable parts of courses, but students prefer to combine them with face-to-face interaction.

Immediate feedback and assessment are essential for learning. Both are problematic in large scale inquiry based and research based laboratory courses. We aim to improve the effectiveness of large-scale laboratory courses using an integrated online assessment and feedback system.

Laboratory classes are an expensive learning activity. A careful design is needed to get the most out of the time spend in the laboratory. We also learned that students who are responsible for their own planning and their own choices, are more motivated. Giving students more responsibilities makes them more aware of what they are doing and why. During this session I will show you how we organize…

The aim of this project was to increase the transfer of knowledge between the digital case and the pre-lab assignment. This should prepare the students for the lab class, and help the development of high cognitive skills. This will help to improve the application of theoretical knowledge into practice, to decrease workload/stress for the students and thereby to increase the independence of the st…
