Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 14, 2016 7:14 AM

Main findings

 

"The key finding of the study is that a common conceptual approach at European level, capable of supporting the development of digital capacity in educational organisations, is both desirable and attainable.

 

The DigCompOrg framework has seven key elements and fifteen sub-elements that are common to all education sectors. There is also scope for the addition of sectorspecific elements and sub-elements. For each of the elements and sub-elements of DigCompOrg, a number of descriptors were developed (74 in total). Diagrammatically, the elements, sub-elements and descriptors of DigCompOrg are presented as the sectors of a circle, with an emphasis on their inter-relatedness and inter-dependence."

Alfredo Corell's insight:

The most MOOCs were provided by universities in Spain – 79 – followed by 66 in the UK. “We don’t know what’s going on in Eastern Europe,” Gaebel said. There seemed to be no MOOCs offered by any university in that region at present.

Así consigue Finlandia ser el número 1 en Educación en Europa.- | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Los niños finlandeses de hoy estarán el día de mañana entre los profesionales más preparados del mundo. No lo predice ninguna bola de cristal, lo auguran datos objetivos. Desde que la OCDE comenzara en el año 2000 a elaborar su informe PISA, Finlandia ha acaparado los primeros puestos del podio en Europa por su excelente nivel educativo.

European University Association > Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

May 07, 2015

EUA has launched the Trends 2015 report, which presents the universities’ perceptions of the changes that have taken place in European higher education over the past five years, particularly in relation to learning and teaching. Based on survey responses of 451 higher education institutions from 46 countries (48 higher education systems), the report outlines the changing context in which higher education institutions operate.

 

...

 

The quality of learning and teaching is receiving increased attention and support by the academic staff and the institutional leadership. As examples, 60% have a centralised unit for pedagogical staff development, and 63% have institution-wide quality assurance policies and processes. The implementation of learning outcomes has continued to progress since 2010, with 64% of institutions responding that these have been introduced for all courses. Institutions are generally positive about the benefits of learning outcomes. It is clear, however, that in many institutions their implementation appears to have taken place without changing in radical ways how curricula, including examinations, are developed. Therefore this area is still a work in progress.

SIRIUS network | European Online Education and Training Monitor 2013 available | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The annual Education and Training Monitor examines the evolution of Europe's education and training systems. It takes into account various benchmarks and indicators but also recent studies and policy developments.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

At the request of the Council, the Education and Training Monitor is an annual report presented every autumn by the Commission, setting out, in a succinct document, progress on the ET 2020 benchmarks and core indicators, including the Europe 2020 headline target on education and training. The Education and Training Monitor illustrates the evolution of education and training systems across Europe, with a particular focus on the country-specific recommendations adopted in the field of education and training, and contributes to the analytical basis for the next European Semester.

Consultation on "Opening up Education – a proposal for a European Initiative to enhance education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Consultation on "Opening up Education – a proposal for a European Initiative to enhance education and skills development through new technologies"

Title

Public Consultation on "Opening up Education – a proposal for a European Initiative to enhance education and skills development through new technologies"

Policy fields

Education

Target groups

All stakeholders affected by education and training policies and systems, including school education, vocational education and training, higher education and adult education. Contributions are expected from public authorities, organisations and citizens.

Period of consultation

From 13 August 2012 to 13 November 2012

Objective of the consultation

The objective of the consultation is to explore the perceived need - mainly but not exclusively among education and training stakeholders – for EU action to promote the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) and of ICT in education.

New technologies, in particular the internet, together with globalisation and the emergence of new education providers, are radically changing the way people learn and teach. Open access to education resources offers an unprecedented opportunity to enhance both excellence and equity in education. The EU aims to help both individual learners and education and training institutions in Member States to benefit from these opportunities and to increase their contribution to society.

In the last quarter of 2012, the Commission will present a Communication on Rethinking Skills aiming to increase the quantity, quality and relevance of skills supply for higher economic and social outcomes. This will, among other actions, announce a new EU Initiative on "Opening up Education": a proposal to exploit the potential contribution of ICTs and Open Educational Resources (OER) to education and skills development. This new EU initiative on "Opening up Education" will be the topic of a subsequent Communication in mid-2013.
