Challenges in Designing E-learning to Educators with Limited Time and Access

Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalPosterResearchpeer-review


This project aims to develop three e-learning courses, each containing six modules concerning early childhood education and care (ECEC). Each of the modules is designed to be completed in small gaps of time by educators, who have limited access to computers in their daily practice. This is one of the challenges in designing materials for educators in this area. Another challenge that also needs to be addressed when developing a learning design framework and producing modules is the diversity of educational provision across countries. Preliminary findings have revealed challenges in the academic process of condensing and re-mediating theoretical work on Child-centeredness in ECEC settings into meaningful online modules for practitioners. Difficulties can also arise when attempting to ensure coherence and progression between online modules that have been created by different partners. This presentation will emphasize how the project is developing manageable online courses for ECEC educators, which can be, completed in short spaces of time in their daily practice. Based on the experiences of re-mediating theoretical texts in multimodal formats, this paper and poster seek to encourage interest in the design process of online courses.
