To discuss the main conference topic, specific case studies are offered as a part of the interactive discussion sessions, with the aim:
The results will be a contribution of the Educational Technology Working Group to the CRUS 2010 report on the state and future of e-learning.
Departure point for discussion will be virtual cases that illustrate the following perspectives and related issues:
"eduhub University is a well established higher education. The Bologna reform has brought many changes in the way teaching and learning are organised. There have been many discussions on what teaching and learning at the university are about. In parallel, at eduhub University there have been a lot of discussions about e-learning. A learning management system has been introduced, some quite interesting e-learning projects have been funded by the Swiss government and many people have been hired to support faculties with their teaching…"
It is planned to have one discussion group per topic with multiple discussion sessions each, twice half an hour during day 1 and a one-hour session during day 2. The aim of the first session (day 1) is to collect a wide variety of perspectives and to discuss "real" cases, related problems and conflicts at our "real" universities. On the second session (day 2) the goal is to identify possible solutions and formulate common needs.
To support the preparations of the case study tables we kindly ask you to fill in the short questionnaire in the registration form. By gaining an impression of your work situation, thoughts and wishes we will be able to prepare the discussion tables accordingly. Thank you!
Following the eduhub days an additional survey is planned to have a more representative data basis for the Educational Technology Working Group (ETWG) input to the CRUS 2010 report.
