Transition from secondary school to university and moving back into training or education to reskill or upgrade competencies represent a challenge for any learner. Approaches using social media, social networks, digital media, serious games, virtual worlds, ePortfolio and blogs have potential to support the development of learning to learn competencies. The eLene2learn network has been identifying and exploring the use of such existing practices, tools and methodologies. The approach and the results of the project will be presented, including national pilot implementations with direct contributions of teachers, enhanced by an online webinar. The workshop/webinar will conclude in an invitation to participants to become associate partners of the network.

The DISTANS Network, which is part of the Nordic Network for Adult Learning – NVL, will hold the session with the theme ´Nordic Panorama´. In the session members of the network will present themes which all evolve around the use of ICT in education in remote areas, including real life examples from the Nordic countries. These include the University of Iceland on how ICT has been used to bridge distances enabling people to persue studies and enrich their lives, the Learning Centre in Jämtland, Sweden about how local learning centres have supported students who want to stay at home during their studies and attract new students to remote areas through cooperation between companies, learning institutions and municipalities. Otava Folk High School in Finland, will present how to offer citizens, who have not been able to complete upper secondary school, the opportunity to do so through distance education. The Norwegian Association for Distance Education will discuss about how online learning can be a part of a busy professional life. The presentations build on the results of a two year series of symposia held in six remote areas in the Nordic area

How to Power-up Communities behind OER Initiatives
Bieke Schreurs, Open Universiteit Nederland, The Netherlands, Ildiko Mazar, EDEN, Paul Bacsich, Sero Consulting Ltd., Grainne Conole, Ming Nie, Gabi Witthaus, University of Leicester, United Kingdom

This workshop will begin with the development of a shared consensus on the concept of OER and the concept of OER Communities, along with an exchange of participants' own experiences of OER and the role of their own learning ties within (online) communities. OER will be approached in the broadest sense. The workshop will provide a short overview of examples of existing OER Communities within Europe and Canada, examples from all areas of education, including OER research groups, drawing in particular on a series of case-studies developed by the POERUP project. The Social Network Analysis Methodology will be used to give insights into the dynamics of OER Communities. Participants may visualise their own learning ties and reflect on the influence these learning ties have for their own use. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on how we can stimulate the dynamics of OER Communities and what is needed to strengthen the impact of the communities on the uptake of OER in the world of education.
