Connected Learning; Building a Pedagogical Framework for Scale and Inclusion
July 19, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am UTC+0
Access to education for refugees and the forcibly displaced still lags far behind the global average. Provision of education in low resource contexts is often difficult and costly; this is exacerbated the further students progress along the educational continuum, particularly at tertiary level.
One of the largest barriers to scale and inclusion is available faculty onsite and online due to time zones and connectivity. Merging capabilities of connected learning into the learning eco-system can act as multiplier effect in host countries with limited faculty resources, enhancing the ability to provide a quality educational solution to both refugees and at risk populations.
The Instructional Design E-Learning (IDEL) team combined a centuries-old, student-centered pedagogical model of excellence with Knowledge Taxonomy, Cognitive Apprenticeship and Backward Design to create an Intelligent pedagogical framework to maximize the use of Connected Learning.
In December 2019, members of the Connected Learning in Crisis Consortium, UNHCR, and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in Jordan convened a week-long training for 40 university faculty in Amman, Jordan. This showcase will review the model and outcomes of the workshop.
