Frans I. Rip, Sept. 2010
GI education and training comes in many shapes and sizes.
The ways to describe their contents are diverse too.
When reading a course description,
- out of focus - without screen
Summarized: variety in sources and reception: a communication obstacle
Describing GI courses with ‘free’ text is like the projection of an image through a bad lens and without a screen
EduMapping can help by providing a screen
EduMapping relates course content to an external reference
and creates a LABEL
This label, added to course descriptions, should make GI education more transparent
(requires only local application of EduMapping)
→ helps curriculum marketing
(possible when EduMapping is widely applied)
