THE CONTEXT

The ELSE partners feel that the implementation of the Bologna process has been patchy, and that its potential benefits are underexploited. Two fundamental principles of Bologna (echoed in the Lisbon document and the LLP for adult education) remain unrealized:

Students continue to be peripheral to the process of knowledge co-construction

The potential for true pedagogical innovation through new technologies that can enhance the learning experience is underexplored

Technology remains an innovative toolkit used to deliver traditional content, rather than a means to drive a process of radical pedagogical innovation, and is largely limited to the implementation of e-learning.

This is what we need to do

ENHANCE STAFF AWARENESS...

…of the changes in the stakeholders’ sensorium and learning styles, engendered by the digital era

STIMULATE TEACHERS' APPETITE ...

…for an innovative learning environment based on learner-centred pedagogies (holistic, constructivist, connectivist approaches), which can activate students’ learning process through problem-solving, learning-by-doing, gamification, or digital information research

DEMONSTRATE TO TEACHERS...

…that these opportunities can be realised through the application of Higher Order Thinking ICTs

PROVIDE APPROPRIATE AND EASY TO USE TRAINING MATERIAL...

…to make this transformative journey possible!
