Teaching and Learning in Wallenberg Hall’s Experimental Classrooms

Here is an article, how technology-enhanced learning environments can be utilized to facilitate learning in activity, by Sabine Hoidn , appears in - Newsletter May 2007.

In the age of telecommunications and multimedia, university teaching and learning occurs more and more in technology-enhanced environments.
Scanning the current research landscape it is clear that the development of innovative pedagogies lags behind the progression of new technologies. Starting from a literature review, the authors investigate educational practices by analyzing two classes of a videotaped course conducted in one of the high performance classrooms at Stanford University to explore new ways of teaching and learning utilizing state-of-the-art technology.

Before I joined the University of St. Gallen, I gained various experiences as a responsible human resources assistant as well as a teacher in vocational schools and as a lecturer in adult education. Currently, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Education at the Institute of Business Education and Educational Management, University of St. Gallen (Switzerland) starting in 2003. Since 2004 I work as a scientific assistant and lecturer at the Social Science Department (University of St. Gallen) specializing in the fields of technology-enhanced pedagogy in higher education, participating in learning communities, and (qualitative) research methods. During the calendar year 2006 I joined the Stanford School of Education as a visiting scholar as I received a fellowship by the Swiss National Science Foundation to further pursue my research interests.
