#FLMobiGame - Karsten Lundqvist wins Technological Innovation in Teaching Excellence Award

We all are delighted that our colleague, #FLMobiGame lead educator, Karsten Øster Lundqvist won 'Technological Innovation in Teaching Excellence Award' for his effort to flip the classroom in his 2nd year Java Module.

Unlike other teaching awards that are awarded by institutions, this award was offered by the RUSU (Reading University Students Union) and the nominations were made by students.

I managed to capture Karsten with his award at his office.


  1. Hi Tharindu.
    Please pass on my congratulations to Karsten on his award. I find it difficult to understand how you all find the time to run this course and teach more conventional courses at reading as well.
    Well done Karsten for the award, and the whole #FLMobiGame team for a great course.
    Thank you,


    1. Hi Rob,
      I did convey your wishes via email to Karsen. I know it is a challenge but we all enjoy it - especially when we see our participants are enjoying and improving and also trying out new things. We all are very grateful to you and other 'MOOC alumni' supporting us. We are thinking of a research project looking at community building around a MOOC and wonder whether you would be interested in giving your perspective as a 'MOOC alumni'?

      See you at #FLMobiGame


    2. Hi Tharindu.

      Of course. I'd love to. Let me know what sort of information you would like and I'll do my best to help.
      I must admit, I'm a bit of an unsociable devil normally. I very seldom tweet (Just checked. I have 6 followers :D ), and I tend to log on to face book once a month or less, and never post anything there, so I'm not a terribly community driven individual. I do like FL though as it has a purpose and is not as frivolous as general social networking seems to be.

      Please feel free to contact me in whichever way is easiest for you.

      My email if you don't already have access is rob at robsbots dot org dot uk
      or leave a note here, or on the FL forums. I follow you, so I should pick it up.

    3. Fantastic! I will contact you via email.

  2. He deserve it. Congratualations Mr. Karsten Lundqvist. Good Luck
