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?
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?
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)
