2014 EDEN Annual Conference

2014 EDEN Annual Conference | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

10-13 June 2014 in Zagreb, Croatia 

 

Developing human potential has been a persistent EU policy aim even in the recent years of economic crisis. Among the goals of the European Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, Europe 2020, we find employment and innovation, featuring education as a major lever.

 

European education and training systems are often criticised for not properly responding to social needs, and even that employers, education providers, and youth live in parallel universes. Universities’ reputation often comes from the visible, high level relations with prestigious corporations. E-learning, as a system integrator, may help education providers and employers to actively step into one another’s worlds.

 

Workplace-based training supported by ICT tools is part of the solution to reduce skill shortages and mismatches. E-learning has become a dominant delivery method in learning settings at work across various sectors and a wide range of company sizes. Its advantages may be many, including flexibility, cost and time savings, and new work habits and improved working climate. ICT-enhanced learning may improve organisational performance and lead to increased staff commitment and the generation of new ideas.

 

E-learning is often used by companies to inform and educate not only their employees but also customers, as part of their branding and marketing strategy and activities. The conference will explore these themes and issues - call for papers open until 31 January 2014.

 

 

 
John Bostock's insight:

Looks a very interesting theme for next year's EDEN Conference - Call for papers now open.
