Abstract: The bachelor programme in biomedical laboratory analysis at VIA University College in Aarhus has established a blended class concept which combines traditional and live broadcast teaching. 1-2 days a week students have the choice either to attend teaching sessions in the traditional way or to work from home via the Internet. In live video-streamed teaching classes teachers tend to choose one-way
communication instead of dialogue. We know from our early findings that technology issues are one of the main reasons for this, since the same teachers use dialogue and discussions in traditional teaching. This paper describes a work-in-progress project focused on developing possibilities for a more dialogue-based approach to live video-streamed teaching. We present our new setup and argue for educational de-
signs which this is believed to support, and we outline the research design for collecting and analysing data. The first analysis and interpretations will be discussed at the ECEL 2015 conference poster session.
