Designing an Online Mentoring System for Self-Awareness and Reflection on Lifelong Learning Skills<br />In other terms: <br />How to map an established face-to-face mentoring system to an online system.<br />
ELLIMent: Supporting Life Long Learning Skills Online<br />Online Mentoring.<br />Based on the ELLI (Effective Life Long Learning Inventory).<br />Awareness: Representation of seven learning power dimensions.<br />Reflection: Exchange of reflections between mentee and mentor and vice verse. <br />Reflection history.<br />http://kmi.open.ac.uk/technologies/name/elliment<br />
Challenges of this research<br />What elements of face-to-face mentoring are essential and realizable as an online tool. <br />Using ELLIMent in a PLE scenario. <br />What makes a good mentor if everyone can be your personal mentor? <br />Can we build a system which connects you with the right mentor?<br />Can learning paths help to reflect on life long learning skills?<br />Analytics: How to detect support needs. <br />
What should we focus on during this workshop?<br />Awareness and Reflection Components<br />Design patterns<br />Vision sharing<br />Fun<br />
Research agenda for the next five years<br />Applications - the reflection corner: Enabling every learner having access to reflections on a topic of interest, to share own reflections, and to get feedback on them. <br />Reflection and perception:Reflective writing seems to be a tedious process. How can we make it more fun?The language of public reflections.<br />Theory - the relation between awareness and reflection:What is worth to reflect on? There are many things we can be aware of, but which are worth to reflect on?<br />Design: Design recipes, to foster reflection<br />Methods: Evaluation of informal awareness and reflection systems.<br />The role of feedback and skills: How important is the role of a mentor? How much guidance is needed?<br />Vision building: Towards an aware and reflective learner.<br />
