Beyond Prototypes | Enabling innovation in technology-enhanced learning | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) research focuses on how technologies can add value to learning and teaching processes. Today’s learners have access to increasingly powerful and affordable handheld computing devices, including smartphones, games consoles and tablet computers. They can share, interact and immerse themselves online with others through the use of social networks and virtual worlds.

Nofima - Educating seafood industry about R & D management

Nofima - Educating seafood industry about R & D management | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Nofima is collaborating with the University of Tromsø to run a course on management of R & D.

 

On one hand, the course aims to get the seafood companies to work more strategically with research, development and innovation. On the other hand, it aims to help develop closer contact and interaction between research, industry and funding agencies.

 

The target group is small and medium-sized seafood companies. The course is particularly aimed at managers, mid-level managers and others who have or are intended to have responsibility for research, development and innovation.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks to be a great initiative, I hope companies take advantage.

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre | Transforming Scottish Aquaculture

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre | Transforming Scottish Aquaculture | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) will provide transformational change in the relationship between the aquaculture industry, the research community and Government to overcome these issues and release Scotland’s potential. Investment in the SAIC will help transform aquaculture’s already substantial contribution to the Scottish economy, with many of the benefits concentrated in fragile rural communities. The Scottish Government has adopted industry targets for increased production. In the salmon industry alone, meeting these targets would contribute an additional £500 million to the Scottish economy per year. If we consider the wider sector, including trout, shellfish, supply chain and all supporting businesses, then the overall financial contribution to the Scottish economy could exceed £1 billion. SAIC will bring together the key players in this strategically important industry, focusing on removing current and future obstacles, creating wealth and long term employment.

MOOCs and disruptive innovation: Implications for higher education

MOOCs and disruptive innovation: Implications for higher education | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

This paper uses the theory of disruptive innovation (Bower and Christensen, 1995) to examine MOOCs development and how their approach could be used to help institutions explore innovative approaches for teaching and learning and to develop new business models in order to gain competitive advantages in the education market. MOOCs provide institutions with a vehicle to think creatively and innovatively to explore new business models and flexible learning paths in HE provision. However, there is a need to rethink current higher education structures and policies and working practices that obstruct innovation. This includes funding arrangements and the ability to disaggregate teaching from  assessment and accreditation for differential pricing and pursuit of marketing activities.

John Bostock's insight:

Some good comments on how we start to combine the best of MOOCs and face-to-face teaching.
