The MATURE Integrating Project is based on the concept of knowledge maturing (KM): goal-oriented learning on a collective level. The project investigates how KM takes place within and across organisations, what barriers are encountered and how socio-technical solutions overcome those barriers.
elearningeuropa.info is supporting the Workshop 08: "Mainstreaming eLearning in National Policies" of the first annual Digital Assembly by hosting a dedicated community. This community offers access to the Workshop, its materials and discussions.
The Digital Agenda for Europe is the European Union's road map for bringing the benefits of a digital society and economy to Europe's citizens. The 101 actions announced in that strategy are discussed in the first annual Digital Assembly in Brussels on June 16-17.
The workshop will discuss the current situation of ICT for education and training in Member States, the potential obstacles to full scale adoption of eLearning, and the necessary pre-conditions to mainstreaming it in formal, non-formal and informal learning (ICT infrastructures, teachers’ competencies, etc).
The expected outcome is a set of priorities and actions encouraging Member States to innovate in their education and training through adopting and integrating eLearning into teaching and training. It should also include recommendations to the Commission on how to support the Member States in their endeavour.
We welcome everyone interested in the challenges of Mainstreaming eLearning in education and training to participate in this community.
The 6th EFQUEL Innovation Forum entitled "Certify the Future!?... Accreditation, Certification and Internationalisation" seeks to discuss certification systems for higher education, discuss certification in adult education and schools, for individuals and for organisations from Europe and beyond. We would like to invite you to debate the value of certifications, to examine good practice examples of innovative ways of certification in the various educational fields and to shape a future vision of how certifications can evolve to become instruments to certify the future.

The Digital Agenda contains commitments to undertake 101 specific policy actions intended to stimulate a virtuous circle of investment in and usage of digital technologies. Several actions are undertaken in the domain of education: identification of descriptors of digital competence; a policy handbook on digital competence; the development of indicators to measure the use of ICT in education; and large scale crossnational demonstrations on creative learning and innovative teaching.
The topic tracks for MMVC11 are: Moodle for instruction and learning for blended and fully online courses, teaching with Moodle in unique ways, online facilitation using Moodle, Moodle tips, Moodle communities of learning, research studies and case studies on teaching with Moodle, Moodle innovations and developments, best practices with Moodle, and case studies.
The aim of the event will be raise awareness in the Regions of the forthcoming Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) calls to be published in late July 2011. While the future calls will be covered by future targeted information sessions, the conference aims to:
- encourage new local/regional actors to get acquainted with the Framework Programme;
- provide an opportunity for more established actors to share their experience with other regions, so as to mutually learn how regions are developing their research/innovation capacities and supporting business engagement in European research/innovation programmes;
- stimulate new partnerships between regions with shared or complementary research/innovation capabilities;
- inspire learning and sharing ideas on new thinking, such as smart specialisation, and how this may affect regional approaches to research and innovation.
