The psychological and economic effects of individualisation

s individualisation a factor of success in blended learning? Psychological and economic effects of individualisation by means of feedback as demonstrated by an example of a blended learning offer in the health sector

* The social lives of human beings in highly developed societies are influenced by individualisation processes. While the forms of life have become pluralised, the lives of human beings have become more flexible. This circumstance is particularly evident in the connection between education processes and paid work. The catchword “lifelong learning” is omnipresent, learning has become a permanent task. This fact is accompanied by the programmatic demand for self control of learning processes of adults.

* Particular attention should be paid to the heterogeneity of educational, professional and life biographies by computer-based learning arrangements in further training. Important aspects are communication, interaction as well as feedback from tutors and other students. Feedback measures are used as a tool to support individual learning. Feedback has the potential for an individual and efficient acquisition of knowledge in computer-based learning environments.

* The dissertation project deals with this issue and – based on a concrete further education measure – intends to develop a model by using theoretical and practical reference lines, which can be used for finding ways of creating scenarios of individualised further training.
