How Open and Free Content will Transform Post-secondary Education | Contact North | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

If current trends continue, we may well see the day quite soon when most, if not all, digital 'content' will be open and free to use for educational purposes. If that trend develops further, and is combined with online learning, there will be major consequences for teaching, learning and, above all, our post-secondary institutions.

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

As higher education has embraced online education as a way to reduce costs, increase flexibility, and enhance access to students it is important to gain an understanding of the perceptions of instructors moving into online teaching. This study found a change in the beliefs and teaching presence of the instructors from their initial resistance to online teaching to an approach which is mindful of the student experience and promotes a dialogical approach to online learning.

Evelyn Izquierdo's curator insight, April 23, 2014 9:36 PM

There are more benefits from implementing a blended learning approach than keeping the traditional teaching style; however, before incorporating online teaching into our classrooms, there are several factors teachers should take into account. Here is an interesting perspective offered by the University of Southern Queensland you might consider for the pedagogical transition.

Scottish Government - An Assessment of the Benefits to Scotland of Aquaculture

Scottish Government - An Assessment of the Benefits to Scotland of Aquaculture | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

A New independent report shows the Scottish aquaculture industry ‘provides considerable benefits for fragile economic areas’  contributing up to £1.4 billion to Scottish economy.


"The report commissioned by Marine Scotland and the Highlands and Islands Enterprise has been published by Imani and SRSL. 


The economic benefits from the industry are wide ranging and are felt across Scotland including areas that are not traditionally associated with it such as the Central Belt.


The report estimates that if the 2020 industry production target of 223,000 tonnes is met it could have a turn-over value of £2 billion to the Scottish economy and support 10,000 jobs.


Other findings include:

Direct production alone contributed a turn-over of at least £550 million to the Scottish economy and 2,800 jobs in 2012Including added income across the country the industry is currently estimated to contribute a turn-over of £1.4 billion and 8,000 jobs in ScotlandSignificant improvements have been made to the environmental impact of the industry and compares well with other animal production industriesQuality and high value is Scottish aquaculture’s trump card"
John Bostock's insight:

This may be a bit parochial, but a welcome study on the Scottish Aquaculture Industry that will provide good insight into the industry and economic factors for all students of aquaculture

"Fisheries and aquaculture play a vital role in achieving FAO’s Strategic Objectives of eliminating hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. As reported in this edition of The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, people have never consumed so much fish or depended so greatly on the sector for their well-being as today. As the demand for fish increases, the sector is also striving to be more productive and sustainable and to enable more inclusive and efficient systems while reducing rural poverty and enhancing the resilience of livelihoods to disasters, crises and climate change."

MSc Aquatic Food Security - University of Stirling

MSc Aquatic Food Security - University of Stirling | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

"Food security is a complex issue of global significance and understanding the role and contribution of seafood within food security is an emerging research area. Seafood products are provided by both aquaculture and capture fisheries and are one of the most highly traded food products globally. Including seafood in our daily diet provides an affordable source of macro and micronutrients required for optimal human health and development.

 

This course is designed to introduce the global issues affecting seafood production and trading, and will promote an understanding of the key factors affecting aquatic food production, post-harvest protocols, post-mortem metabolic events and microbial/chemical processes key for food safety and quality. Sensory assessment and shelf-life extension technologies will also be covered. The course will also examine other key issues in seafood trading such as traceability systems, certifications as well as the impact of governance and legislation on the global seafood sector.

 

This is the only aquatic food security MSc currently available in the UK. It will comprehensively follow the food chain from production through to consumer health and welfare."

Emma Project

Emma Project | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

12 leading universities and companies in 8 European countries announced the launch today of the new EMMA project which will provide access to MOOCs in different languages and supported by automatic transcription.

 

The first EMMA MOOCs will go live in September 2014 and are provided by universities in Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the UK on subjects as diverse as Business Management, Social Innovation and Cultural Heritage, Climate Change and Searching on the Internet.

 

Announcing the launch of EMMA today, the project coordinator Rosanna De Rosa said “EMMA provides an exciting opportunity for both students and MOOC providers in Europe to benefit from a simple user-friendly platform that provides unique multilingual access to MOOCs – we are looking forward to rolling out this service in the coming 6 months”.


EMMA will operate in two main modes: as an aggregator and hosting system of courses produced by European universities and as a system that enables learners to construct their own learning paths using units from MOOCs as building blocks. Once operational, EMMA will be open for other providers who wish to make their MOOCs available in multiple languages and across borders.

 

Pilots will run in 7 countries with a total of 16 MOOCs and will involve at least 60,000 participants. EMMA is a 30 month pilot action supported by the European Union. EMMA will showcase excellence in innovative teaching methodologies and learning approaches and will offer free, open, online courses in multiple languages from different European universities to help preserve Europe’s rich cultural, educational and linguistic heritage and to promote cross-cultural and multi-lingual learning.
