Since its early days, the EFQUEL Innovation Forum has been a highly interactive place for discussing future and innovative practices, research and policy developments in the various sectors of technology enhanced education and training.5 to 7 September 2012 in Granada.
How can we turn our traditional educational institutions into (r)evolutionary leading organisations? How can innovation be stimulated? The conference will observe and analyse how open innovation can be used to transform today’s educational institutions.
This conference will question why most educational institutions still educate tomorrow’s leaders, experts and workforce with yesterday’s tools. The contemporary education landscape is facing disruptive technological advancements and the promises of web 2.0 to foster a new mode of knowledge creation and collaborative learning among students around the world.
However, the promises of modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and e-learning have not effectively innovated universities. Little progress has been made and resources invested into ICT adoption are frequently spent without a clear definition of objectives and change strategies. The future of learning is taking place now – and yet educational activities are often stalled in a pedagogical model of transmitting knowledge rather than constructing solutions, following educational approaches which have been put into place centuries ago and still largely dominate teaching and learning in academia.
The programme will consist of a call for papers with EFQUEL's own recommended speakers. The best submissions have a chance to be selected for the first edition of the EFQUEL journal (to be launched in autumn 2012) which will contain full research papers on Innovation and Quality in Learning.
