    17. 17. 3. Motives
    18. 18. Context of HE: Internationalisation as a condition for excellence International competition to get the best students, best education, best research Bridging the gap-problems causes increased heterogeneity Student as customer : higher expectations Increase in number of students versus decrease in government funding Opportunities of the digital age

    23. 23. 4. The future
    24. 24. Changes in Sources of Information <ul><li>Middle Ages </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Source of information = Professor </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Printing Press </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Source of information = University </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Digital Age </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Source of information = Internet </li></ul></ul>
    25. 25. Implications for the institution? <ul><li>We are no longer THE source of information </li></ul><ul><li>What does a university have to offer? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Content: information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Context: explanation, interpretation of information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Feedback: examinations, assessment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reputation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accredited diploma </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social network </li></ul></ul>

    27. 27.

Tremendous growth in the use of streaming video. How do we make optimal uses of these developments? </li></ul>
    28. 28. Where do we go from here ? <ul><li>Challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainability: how to create (financial) incentives for staff to publish educational materials? </li></ul><ul><li>Different motives: how to create a business model when departments have different motives to participate? Examples of motives : </li></ul><ul><li>Drinking water: more international students, OCW will be integrated in the blended learning modules </li></ul><ul><li>Nanoscience: reputation, more master students </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial Design: Open source design </li></ul><ul><li>Micro Electronics: collaboration with industries (sponsorships) </li></ul>
