Innovation Competencies Barometer - INCODE

Innovation Competencies Barometer - INCODE | EIF LINQ 2014 Conference News | Scoop.it

THE USE OF ACTIVE LEARNING METHODS like the new REHA calls for assessment criteria and methods that meet intended learning outcomes. It is not sufficient to use written performance tasks to assess the intended learning outcomes of an active learning method like the REHA. Rather there is a pressing need for new oral-performance-based assessment tools to fulfill the requirements that arise from the principle of constructive alignment in curriculum design.

The development of the Innovation Competencies Barometer ICB started with the definition of innovation competencies and was followed by the creation of an assessment rubric to be used to test the ICB in a given situation. The training of raters, small scale testing in each country and in-depth analysis of performance of the rubric and raters will be the next steps before refining the ICB for use with the REHAs in all partner countries.

The corridor of uncertainty: Opening up higher education - Opportunity or challenge for quality?

The corridor of uncertainty: Opening up higher education - Opportunity or challenge for quality? | EIF LINQ 2014 Conference News | Scoop.it
Quality assurance in higher education deals with formal education where students follow set courses within a degree programme and where administration, course design, learning outcomes, assessment and examination are well-defined and where quality criteria are clearly defined. However, the growth of open education, in particular the various interpretations of the MOOC concept, has demanded a reassessment of quality when dealing with a highly flexible and less structured learning environment. Can we define quality assurance for the moving target of open education and if so how can universities adapt?

The Battle for Open - a perspective | Weller | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

In this article the author argues that openness in education has been successful in establishing itself as an approach. However, this initial victory should be viewed as part of a larger battle around the nature of openness. Drawing lessons from history and the green movement, a number of challenges for the open education movement are identified as it enters this new stage. The value of openness to education is stressed in that it relates to opportunities for development and the role of the higher education in society.

MOOCs, Norway, and the ecology of digital learning

MOOCs, Norway, and the ecology of digital learning | EIF LINQ 2014 Conference News | Scoop.it

Tony Bates

Earlier this week I was in Washington DC, at a conference called Transatlantic Science Week, aimed at promoting collaboration between research, innovation and educational institutions and organizations in the U.S.A, Canada and Norway. The main themes for the conference were International Security, Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Cyber Security and Education Policy/Education Research. (No prizes for guessing which theme I was invited to contribute to, although I have to say the others looked more interesting.) This year’s conference was organized by the Norwegian Embassy in Washington, with guidance from the Research Council of Norway.
