Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education for the Future We Want: From Statements to Action: Policy Challenges – The European Voice

Gard Titlestad, International Council for Open and Distance Education – ICDE, Norway, Maxim Jean-Louis, Contact North, Canada

Access, equity and quality learning are key features shaping a new vision of the post-2015 education agenda. Higher education is central to the future global sustainable agenda and to helping countries, particularly developing ones, achieve “equitable, quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030”.

This workshop will engage on European level in the issues crucial for the future direction and actions expected for higher education and learning, scrutinizing conclusions from a global high level forum in Paris concluded 11 June to prepare for a European voice at the High Level Policy Forum 17 October in Pretoria, organized by ICDE in partnership with UNESCO and Commonwealth of Learning.

Workshop Session G5

Educamps in Education: Enjoyable “Over-the-Shoulder Learning” to Show and Share ICT Practices

Solveig Jakobsdottir, University of Iceland, Iceland

Educamps provide unstructured collective learning experiences, where the possibilities of social software tools in learning and interaction processes are explored using face-to-face sessions that reflect social networked learning ideas (Leal Fonseca, 2011). At the University of Iceland – School of Education (UISE) the educamp model has been adapted and used in a variety of ways for different groups of teachers and teacher students to enhance technological knowhow, share practices and develop a social network. Educamps have for example been included in campus sessions for graduate and undergraduate students. During the last two school years, a series of educamp workshops at the UISE have been offered, linking teacher education staff and students with practicing teachers interested in ICT for teaching and learning at different school levels. During the first part of this workshop (15-20 minutes) the educamp model will be introduced briefly. Participants will then suggest interesting technology, digital resources etc. they would like to introduce to others (in a teacher role). The main part of the workshop will be divided into three periods (ca. 20 minutesx3). Participants take turns being in a teacher or student role. In each period 1/3 of the group participants, spread around the room with their mobile devices and are in a teacher role while the others are in a student role. During the last part of the workshop participants will discuss their experiences of this type of workshop. Ideas will be collected about its relevance for participants’ own practices and how this model could be used and developed further.
