Module contents

Change has strong bonds with social, economic and cultural dimensions of our everyday lives and, therefore, continually shapes and affects every day institutional operations. Change must be learned because it influences the way we perceive the world; however, any project that results in or promotes change in organisations requires professional management of that change. To this end, the course will provide insights regarding change and innovation, closely examining their transformational potential in TEL, and will further examine education-related theoretical concepts. This course will then concentrate on a systematic approach to (planned) changes and conduct an in-depth discussion into the tasks and challenges of and coping mechanisms for change management, with a specific focus on issues surrounding the implementation of technology within learning environments and educational institutions.

All course material will be offered as open educational resources (OER).
