Objectives & Tracks

UNESCO-Logo_Calidad

One of the main challenges in modern education is to blend formal, official learning, with a huge variety of content provision, group discussion, self-entrepreneurship, user’s own portfolio, and long list of possibilities off-the-classroom. Informal learning happens anytime, anywhere. We strongly believe that formal learning, too. The cornerstone is to find the right balance between both contexts.

The effective integration of Open Educational Resources with formal lessons, or between traditional lectures with live multi-user conferences, or even more between spontaneous forum contributions outside the Learning Management System, and the official activities towards certification, this effective integration will make the difference, the actual change of educational paradigm.

And it would work for every single shareholder of the educational community, from teachers to tutors, from support staff to managers, from content providers to learning designers and, of course, from students to graduates.

This conference will explore, analyse, discuss and, above all, suggest specific actions to take, in order to achieve a full integration of resources, learning styles, educational methodologies, administrative goals, institutional visions, and every single concern of every member of the Higher Education community.

Spanish & English will be the official languages. Bi-directional, live interpretation will be provided.
