Transcript

  • 1. REVIEW: CHAPTER 5 How to create regional e-learning networks
  • 2. About: Wolfgang Greller
    • Head of Learning Environments (UHI)
    • Chair of the Arctic Learning Environment (UArctic)
    • Head of e-Learning (AAU – Klagenfurt)
    • Programme Manager Learning Networks (OUNL)
  • 3. The Chapter
    • Intro to regional learning networks
    • Classification of target groups
    • Role of e-learning in networks
    • Dimensions of (e-)learning networks
    • Technologies
    • VCSE partner networks
    • „ Case studies“ of learning networks
    • Recommendation & reflection
  • 4. Comments
    • Questions need answers (e.g. chapter title)
    • Target groups follow traditional divisions (school, HE, business, „other“)
    • What are the drivers ?
    • What are the enablers/factors for success ?
    • Differentiation between self-organised and managed LNs
    • What makes a regional LN? Who has ownership?
  • 5. Target Groups
    • Target groups in regional thinking less articulate
    • Boundaries between business, politics, education, society are more blurred than on national level
    • Regional networks work across boundaries – away from traditional divisions
    • Greater need for collaboration between sectors
    • „ Other“ category is weak (should incl. Government, voluntary sector, NGOs, personal networks)
  • 6. Ownership
    • Target groups = external ownership
    • Regional networks consist of stakeholders = internal participatory ownership
    • Clear strategic goals: education is a means to an end not an aim in itself. Therefore authorities, all levels of edu, and business need to be involved.
    • Lifelong learning: in regional networks there is room for better articulation routes between education sectors (multi-functionality of institutions)
  • 7. Technologies
    • Listing technologies is not useful (state-of-the-art changes, dependent on regional factors)
    • Classification of technologies is largely irrelevant: more important is the purpose
    • Important to elaborate the benefits to the stakeholders!
    • The amount of technologies vs. the right technologies
    • Technology enables! Different e-readiness of orgs
  • 8. Net ready
    • Hartman & Sifonis, 2000
  • 9. Learning Technology
  • 10. University of the Highlands and Islands
    • Regional networked university based on FE Colleges, research and specialist institutions
    • Motto: „Enabled by technology – supported by people“ !
    • Mission to overcome skill shortage and depopulation
    • Niche education market (Gaelic, renewables, tourism, rural health) – addresses local needs!
    • Symbiosis with businesses (CPD), local Gov, education, health sector, local orgs, individuals (mature, maternity, etc)
  • 11. University of the Arctic
    • Network of Learning Institutions, Northern Organisations, Libraries etc.
    • Motto: „in the North, for the North, by the North“
    • Overcome circumpolar problems (South-North poverty division, transportation, access to services, environment, telemedicine)
    • Capacity building, combatting brain-drain, access to (learning) resources
    • Intermediary between national government & regional stakeholders (needs research)
  • 12. Knowledge creation/articulation
    • Knowledge creation increasingly outside universities (e.g. corporate research, NGOs, Communities of Practice worldwide)
    • More knowledge acquisition (learning) outside education (lifelong learning, non-formal & informal learning, on-demand learning)
    • Education has greater demand to bring real-life expertise into teaching and learning (work placements, field trips, guest lectures, LNs)
  • 13. Drivers behind regional LNs
    • Drivers: e.g. regional development goals:
      • Capacity building (economic viability of the region)
      • Telemedicine
      • Service provision (incl. education, CPD, access to experts)
      • Business needs (e.g. transportation costs, teleworking)
      • Population needs (e.g. lifestyle, equality of citizenship)
      • Cross-sector collaboration
  • 14. Drivers for success
    • Participation in regional LN, why?
      • Purpose : Communities of Interest, variety of LNs on different levels
      • Benefit : access to shared resources/expertise; cost-benefit ratio critical (cost = effort); critical mass may play a role
      • Business case : needs to sit within strategy
      • Commonality : common interests, niche market, population needs
