Aalto Online Learning

Call for Idea Proposals on Online/blended Learning, dl October 11th, 2017

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 Aalto Online Learning – A!OLE Coaching Network. The network provides support on design, technology and pedagogy for you to realize 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.

The proposed idea can concern development of an existing course or a novel course, several courses jointly, or a whole major or minor. In addition, we welcome proposals which concern some other type of educational activity (like pedagogical training, skills training or developing novel digital services which support students’ learning and education). Note, while several questions below use term “course” (for simplicity), we encourage interpreting the question in the context of the targeted educational activity.

Supporting ideas to become reality 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.

The seed funding is meant for preparing a better informed proposal in terms of the schedule and budget to support implementating 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 form below.

The idea proposals are continuously evaluated as they arrive until October 11th at noon, 2017, the final deadline for this round of proposals.

Please submit your idea by using the following form:
