Abstract

In this paper, we describe and analyze the process of developing an open and flexible online course for teachers and student teachers. The aim of the course is to increase as well as formalize teachers’ and student teachers’ digital competence. The course is developed as both an open online learning resource as well as an accredited higher education course of 30 credits. We apply activity theory (Engeström 1996, 1999; Jahreie 2010) as a theoretical framework to analyze the development of the course, taking into consideration organizational and pedagogical activity systems. We address the question of how the different systems present influence the development of the goal - the course and course description.
