Positioning lifelong learning in aquaculture: challenges and opportunities - Online First - Springer

Positioning lifelong learning in aquaculture: challenges and opportunities - Online First - Springer | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Lifelong learning has been one of the building blocks of the Bologna Process since 1999. The Thematic network AQUA-TNET (Aquaculture, Fisheries and Aquatic Resource Management TN—2008–2011—142245-LLP-1-2008-1-BE-ERASMUS-ENW) in its response to each development has made a significant contribution to the network members’ knowledge and understanding of the different aspects concerned in the provision of university lifelong learning. Various definitions and interpretations of the concept led to relatively slow implementation of lifelong learning in many European universities; however, the EUA European Universities Charter of Lifelong Learning Surveys undertaken by AQUA-TNET showed that the AQUA-TNET approach has successfully incentivised its partners, since a higher percentage of AQUA-TNET partners (54 %) have a LLL strategy in place than the HE organisations surveyed by the EUA (average 39 %).

Evaluation on the use of e-learning tools to support teaching and learning in aquaculture and aquatic sciences education - Online First - Springer

Evaluation on the use of e-learning tools to support teaching and learning in aquaculture and aquatic sciences education - Online First - Springer | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The study aimed to capture a snapshot of the status of educational means used in teaching and learning in the area of aquaculture, fisheries and aquatic resources management at European level, with specific consideration on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and e-learning tools. To achieve this goal, an online survey was compiled and made available to teachers and students across Europe. In total, teachers from 31 institutions and students from 40 institutions participated in this survey. This paper presents the findings, considers trends and poses further questions for sector stakeholders to help in the development of future programmes and support. In summary, it can be concluded that few teachers have a comprehensive knowledge of the wide range of ICT tools available and can make use of e-learning tools with complete confidence. There is therefore a real and urgent need to “train the trainers” to use ICT in their teaching environments. From the students’ end, there is a strong desire to learn more about the application of e-learning tools and to use them in their learning process.
