Abstrakt

The experiential learning cycle by Kolb is used as a basic framework for connecting abstract concepts like creativity with the design thinking process in a digital online course environment. The students contemplated each step in the learning cycle at least twice in an onward learning spiral. We as teachers completed the cycle on a meta-level, beginning with the abstract conceptualization of the course materials, theories, and methods, and ending with writing this article. The design thinking process applies second-order learning, where the students utilize theories, methods, and actual experiences in the design of their prototype, the testing of which gives new actual experiences, which in turn are reflected upon and finally conceptualised in the concluding exam. Our findings show that despite the challenges of transferring a course from a physical setting to an online environment, teaching and learning, as well as group work are possible.
