LearningLab is BI Norwegian Business School's resource center for teaching, learning and ICT. LearningLab supports faculty and other staff with pedagogical development and production of digital learning resources, as well as courses and support in software related to teaching.
We conduct systematic testing of new teaching methods, assessment methods and digital solutions to find out what provides the best learning for the students. Below are some of the projects LearningLab has completed or been part of, both in BI and in the sector.
The BI2020 project and the report form the backdrop to much of what is happening of systematic innovation of teaching and learning support at BI. Three scenarios for the future can be found here, in addition to the BI2020 report.
Blended Learning Executive Bachelor
Three concepts have been developed for the Executive Bachelor courses. Online courses, campus courses and blended courses. The check lists ensures quality across the courses, and the examples make it easier to create the course.
Increased student activity online
What does it take to increase student activity online between lectures? Together with EdTech Foundry we research what happens if course communication is the focus of the digital learning arena, and if chatbots are used to trigger student learning.
BI has experimented with flipped classroom since 2012. The first project was supported by Norgesuniversitetet. We've had a lot of good results, and a modified version is used by several lecturers.
From 2013 to 2016 72 pilot projects on the pedagogical use of digital tools were conducted at BI. The experiences from these projects can be found in a brochure and short reports from all the projects.
Learning in a digital age
Why do faculty change their teaching practice with new uses of technology? We have gathered some video stories where lecturers reflect on their role in a digital age.
We participate in different ongoing projects at BI, within the subject areas of blended learning, edtech, e-assessment, first year experience and more.
