What may promote changes towards innovation friendly learning systems?

We would like to invite you to take part in the Third Consultation of the VISIR project (available in English, Italian, Spanish, French, German). This survey is the third in the row of four consultations that are planned in the frame of VISIR.

Many great reports, studies, conferences did help to debate, to focus and summarise experience. Now we ask the opinion of the professional community about few major straightforward questions relating the evolution of learning with the innovation challenge - with a bit of simplification: what works ultimately? What drives our innovative efforts? What are the bottlenecks and barriers? What would you do differently?

The VISIR research has already resulted in several thought-provoking findings and ideas.

Please, help us to identify and analyse the existing trends on ICT and learning in Europe!

It will take only few minutes of your time. Please visit the survey and share your opinion!
