Institutional Levers to Implement Digital Learning Methods in the Classroom. Use Case: i-MOOC to Foster Information Literacy in Upper Secondary Education in Switzerland.
Bridging the gap between digital innovations developed in educational design research and the real-world classroom remains challenging. One of the main obstacles lies in institutions, e.g., fixed mindsets and timetables that prevent new developments from reaching the classrooms. A literature review of neo-institutionalist theories identified five levers to facilitate the change of institutions in education. By means of the use case of a massive open online course to foster information literacy in upper secondary education, we illustrate how the five levers may contribute to a sustainable implementation of digital learning settings in classrooms and, hence, institutional change.
