About the project
The SALTO project is based on a study situation where the students are divided into two campuses, a highly relevant issue after the structural reform in the University sector. Our aim is to develop effective pedagogy with activity at both campuses at the same time, and with particular emphasis on interaction, resource sharing and communication. We will adopt established strategies for student-active learning and develop them further in a "cross-campus" context:
- Collaborative learning: Project work, problem-based learning and development projects in groups across campus.
- Flipped classroom: Development of digital learning materials and common methods for in-depth study, discussion and application of subject matter across campus.
The new joint master's program in Music, communication and technology (MCT) between NTNU and University of Oslo, constitutes the framework for the project. The SALTO project will be an open laboratory for cross-campus teaching/learning and will regularly share experiences within internal and external settings.
The project will manage and refine a two-campus learning space for physical-virtual interaction across the web, and allow students and teachers to explore educational, methodological, and technological solutions together.
The project is financed by NTNU and University of Oslo for the period 1.1.2018-31.12.2020.
