|1. And they will come ... Interview with Organizer Rebecca Stromeyer|
|Last year Online Educa Berlin attracted 1127 participants from 64 countries worldwide. The participants came equally from corporate, public and governmental sectors as well as from higher and further education sectors, making the conference a well established platform to make contacts and to exchange valuable experience. One of the major advantages of the conference is the synergy effect of bringing together members from the industry sector as well as from higher education. |
Rebecca Stromeyer, Managing Director of ICWE GmbH, outlines targets, programme and perspectives of the upcoming Online Educa Berlin 2003.
|2. Under good patronage - Minister Bulmahn will open ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN|
|"The use of computers and the internet in education has dramatically changed since the first Online Educa in Berlin 1995. Scepticism has given way to a positive attitude towards the use of new media in education. The challenge now is to find the best possible means of integrating computers and the internet into pedagogical work. The importance attached by Online Educa 2003 to the effective integration of eLearning and to quality issues reflects this development." |
ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN will be opened on December 4, 2003 by the Minister of Education and Research, Edelgard Bulmahn.
This year the Minister has accepted the patronage for the world's largest international conference for technology supported learning and training.
|3. The Laptop Cops of Northern Ireland - What, how and why do we blend?|
|The Police Service Northern Ireland (PSNI) is one of the newest police services in the world, having been borne out of one the oldest. It is now undergoing a massive reform programme to ensure that it is best fitted to meet modern demands in policing. As a consequence also its training programmes are under thorough scrutiny. |
Stephen Boddy, officer with PSNI, reveales his experiences of implementing a blended learning solution by the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
|4. Homo Ludens discovers the cyber world - game-based e-learning|
|The need for life-long learning and for the continual development of professional skills has become widely accepted. But what about Game-Based E-learning? Dr. Christoph Meier, Fraunhofer-Institut Arbeitswirtschaft und Organisation, who will lead a session on game-based e-learning, considers digital game-based learning not just as a motivating form of learning that fits best with a new generation of young, fun-oriented adults but also as an appropriate way to establish a new culture of learning as an active, self-organised, situated and emotional process.|
|5. The SURFing Dutchman - ICT developments in the Netherlands|
|The mission of SURF, a foundation established by and working for all Dutch higher education institutions, is to exploit and improve a common advanced ICT infrastructure that enables higher education institutions to better realise their own ambitions and to improve the quality of learning, teaching and research. Learn more about targets, results and players by Petra Boezerooy, Research Associate, University of Twente, Netherlands.|
