Abstract

QUANTICT is a joint project between two Nepalese and one Norwegian university that aims at developing open and distance learning in teacher education master programs in Nepal that can reach out to students living in remote areas, particularly women and underprivileged groups. This paper presents an action research plan related to the developmental goals of the project and briefly discusses the preliminary findings. Based on the initial training and conversations in workshops on online pedagogy, most faculties in both Nepalese universities in this project advocate a student-centered and dialogic pedagogy that demands social presence. The findings are discussed according to a socio-material approach, questioning the role of the LMS as an actor in the pedagogical change.
