Friday noon: Managing the shift to e-learning

Cornelie Crous

Academic management and governance -> conducive to development of e-learning?

Middle management facing cross-pressures (a bit different in the Danish system where management is a career) -> teachers, senior management, students

Accountability, transparency Autonomy

Specific dilemmas triggered by e-learning? Technology vs. institutions as defining factor?

Wilson Iramina

Distance courses in engineering, issue of on-site delivery
Supporting teams -> professor, converter, tutor, technological support, administrative support

Demands on online students: Work discipline (difference on-site, online), level of knowledge (differentiation of teaching)

Who are necessary for the course, what are their relationship with teachers, students?

Undergraduate courses as a specific field, decoupled from research?

Margaret Korosec

Emergent forces of change in education, “change facilitators”

How does an institution capture initiative? Cultural gap – reculturing, “being off-balance is/can be a learning moment”

Facilitators (can change culture) Tools (cannot change culture)

Maria Pannatier

Clash between formal/informal technological infrastructure. Formal structure used for assessment purposes, but not necessarily useful for communication

Nina Rung Hoch

Student-centric vs departemental frames? Specific strategies?

A bit too many presenters in this session. I would have preferred fewer cases in greater detail – the Brazilian case in particular
