WHY eLF – e-Learning Fitness ?<br />In the realm of Fitness:<br />• several organizations have been established – with a national or international scope – and networked together<br />• several successful projects took place in order to define contents and procedures and to implement them<br />Still, today in most (EU) countries we lack:<br />1. a wide awareness of the key findings among decision makers, operators, public opinion<br />2. a wide acceptance of the procedures to implement the results<br />3. resources to feed these processes<br />February 3-5, 2011<br />
WHY a Dept. of Computer and System Sciences and a Faculty of Engineering?<br />Not just IT: informatics brings in not just Technologies, but even Methodologies, useful – e.g. – for:<br />1. implementing and optimizing informational process (web x.0, social networking, search engines, CMS, ...), with special attention to e-Learning<br />2. modeling and analyzing business & organizational processes (WF models, BPM, ...)<br />3. measuring and improving effectiveness and efficiency of processes (KPI, DW & DM, ...)<br />February 3-5, 2011<br />

Main Goals<br />1. adoption & improvement of an eLearning platform based on the EQF-Fitness minimum standards for the existing fitness instructor occupations at the EQF levels that have been described in previous projects (e.g., EQF–Fitness)<br />2. creation of a “pilot” national register platform for fitness professionals in 10 of the partner countries. Upon completion of the testing period, the successful participants will enroll in the Pilot Registers, which will also have been translated into the partner countries' languages.<br />February 3-5, 2011<br />
