20 1.Number of students Social Orchestration 2.Grouping 3.Roles Students sign in the register with thier names during the break Students names are availble to teachers on didà web-site. Students profiles collected through the web site are available to teachers and didà staff. Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

21 1.Number of students Social Orchestration 2.Grouping Students are asked to sign in the register with thier names during the break Students names and profile are availble to teachers on didà web site propedeutic class: lecturing format. Not any specific activities were carryed on in groups seqeunce class: problem solving format. Not any specific activities were carryed on in groups. Still cooperation emerges among students 3.Roles Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

23 1.Subjects 2.Content situating Content Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

24 1.Subjects Content 2.Content situating The course themes are described on didà web site. The Question Based method is explicit. The course is organized in three modules: -propedeutic (1 st lesson) -Class A (sequences) -Class B (structures) -Class C (advanced) -Class D (advanced) The content is situated by practical exercises, by problem solving activities and by shared feedback about cases presented. The content is situated considering the course steps and duration. Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

25 1.Age 2.Special needs Student information Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

26 1.Age Student information 2.Special needs Looking at the profiles the students filled on didà web site is possible to indirerectly desume the age of the students The staff acces the university personnel database to find all the information about who is attending a training course. The class has been heterogeneous (people from different departments partecipate) Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

27 1.Age Student information 2.Special needs Looking at the profiles the students filled on didà web site is possible to inderctly desume the age of the students No formal ways of accounting for special needs were observed; students asked questions concerning organizational issues to the staff The staff acces the university personnel database to find all the information about who is attending a training course Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

28 1.Duration 2.Steps Time Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

29 1.Duration 2.Steps Time Register filled in by teacher accounts for who holds lessons and which are the topics treated Both duration and steps of bio-informatics classes are presented on didà web site and accessible to everybody without log-in procedures. The classes are organized in four parts with higher And higher degree of complexity Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10

30 Assessment And Evaluation Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10 1.Assessment method 2.Evaluation

40 Evidences collection Bio-Informatics: Propedeutic class 28/09, Sequence class 07/10 ERT production of educational formats: FEW CONSIDERATIONS The evidences collection allowed us to better explore different experiences within the same learning context (training) The representation of evidences is connected with the organizational context and it often changes from a case study to another The theoretical approach seems quite difficult to be represented like an evidence (teacher interviews and observation) but it is still be likely (but not easily) desumed by interviews and activity observation social orchestation evidences are better represented together with action pattern. In fact social orchestration evidences can be easilly understood if represented whithin their own context
