bologna meets europe the european higher education area
Bologna meets Europe – the European Higher Education Area

Bologna Declaration signed by 29 countries in 1999

European universities are in a process of creating a European Higher Education Area by 2010

through better access, quality, competitiveness, attractiveness

The adoption or general implementation of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)

Two neuralgic points in the day-to-day operation of universities on the road to 2010 are the increasing requirements

to offer support, spaces, technologies for informal studies

to help lecturers to shoulder the increased workload

the changing roles of lecturers and students
The Changing Roles of Lecturers and Students

Lecturers

have to change their roles more to facilitators and moderators, especially in the beginning of a course to stimulate students self-organizing competencies

variety of roles: content expert, moderator, motivator, permanent contact person

Students

have to assume more individual responsibility for their own learning

have to shape a wide range of competencies

learning biography changes

informal learning becomes more and more important

informal learning
Informal Learning

Informal learning can be characterized as follows:

it does not take place in special educational establishements apart from normal life and professional practice,

it has no curriculum and is not professionally organized,

it is not planned in a pedagogically conscious, systematic manner according to subjects, test and qualification

it is not unrealistic stockpile-learning, but is experienced directly in its “natural“ function as a tool for living and survival

informal learning8
Informal Learning

Jay Cross: Informal learning is the unofficial, unscheduled, impromptu way most people learn to do their jobs

Formal trainings and workshops account only for 10-20% of what people learn at work

Comparison: riding a bus (formal learning) and riding a bicycle (informal learning)

Riding a bus: the driver decides where the bus is going

Riding a bicycle: the rider chooses the destination and the route

2006

information commons
Information Commons

To enable students to come together, discuss and work in self-organized learning teams

Information Commons should bring together:

student´s ideas

resources of the university (e.g. digital work places, information resources, support)

New media and technologies enable learning environments

accessible independently of time and place

overcome the limitations of traditional learning environments

support scientific work

To provide for different learning and working styles/scenarios (silent room, group work, project work, supported work/training on demand)

group working area at the university library
Group working area at the University Library
  • student learning team
  • working with new media technologies
  • using information technologies
  • in a group working area at the Library of Duisburg-Essen

Project is currently in its planning phase

Centre is essentially conceived as a public open space equipped with

mobile furniture

accessibe infrastructure and resources, e.g. broadband Internet access, hard- and software, notebook workplaces, technical services, mobile devices

wide range of analoguous and digital information services and technologies

eCompetence and technical support through help-desks, student advisors and professional e-competence, media and information management consultants and coaches

Qualified student advisors as immediate contact, possibility to request qualified advice or coaching from staff members of the central units

from pen and paper to online exams
From “Pen and Paper”- to Online Exams

One of the consequence of the Bologna Process is the increasing workload for lecturers because of the amount of written examinations and storage of results

New media technologies can support lecturers with great numbers of students e.g.

distribution of learning materials and tests for preparation on a learning platform

tools for asynchronous communication

Oral exams are already realized – but in a limited way e.g. videoconferencing,

growing demand for specifically equipped rooms, where online exams can be taken under secure and controlled conditions

online exam center at duisburg essen
Online Exam Center at Duisburg-Essen

Survey conducted in 2007 among lecturers: high degree of interest in Exam Center

The CIM is presently building an Online Exam Centre with almost 200 places

Half a million EUR funded by a grant from the German Research Association, the university itself (partly by study fees)

LPLUS as a professional test and assessment software product running on dedicated separated exam server

First centre of this kind in Northrhine Westfalia

from the pen and paper to online exams
From the “Pen and Paper”- to Online Exams

Will be available end of 2009.
