Le CIF en chiffres - Uniformation

http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS-XmtqtQSX1l9K1mdaNtFm5lmrCF1PK5vnGGBbmAVSmGYZodeL4n3ruRsEn quelques lignes, un bref résumé chiffré du poids des congés individuels de formation au sein d'Uniformation.

Le CIF CDI

  • En 2011, le Congé Individuel de Formation CDI :
    • 1.046.406 heures de formation
    • 1.125 bénéficiaires

Ce qui représente une prise en charge moyenne par dossier de 24.675 €.

  • Pour un dossier CIF CDI, pour 100 € de pris en charge, c’est :
    • 72 € pour la rémunération,
    • 24 € pour le coût pédagogique,
    • 4 € pour les annexes (déplacement, hébergement & repas…)
    • 22.759.244 € en total de dépenses financées

Sur l’année 2011, le nombre de demandes de Congé Individuel de Formation CDI pris en chagr par Uniformation est en augmentation d'environ 20 % par rapport à 2010.
Compte tenu d’un nombre de demande supérieur aux possibilités financières, Uniformation ne peut, hélas pas satisfaire immédiatement toutes les demandes.
En moyenne, pour un euro collecté sur le dispositif du CIF, Uniformation devrait en financer deux !
Actuellement, pour une demande de CIF CDI, le délai moyen d’attente, entre le dépôt de la demande initiale et l’accord de prise en charge, est d’environ 12 mois pour les dossiers prioritaires, et 18 mois pour les dossiers non prioritaires. Il s’est réduit de moitié depuis deux ans.

Le CIF CDD
  • En 2011, le Congé Individuel de Formation CDD :
    • 613.608 h heures de formation
    • 642 bénéficiaires
    • 19.561.863 € en total de dépenses financées

Ce qui représente une prise en charge moyenne par dossier de 30.470 €.

  • Pour un dossier CIF CDD, pour 100 € de pris en charge, c’est :
    • 67 € pour la rémunération,
    • 28 € pour le coût pédagogique,
    • 6 € pour les annexes (déplacement, hébergement & repas…)

Sur l’année 2011, Uniformation a pu en financer 83 % des demandes de Congé Individuel de Formation CDD.

Gates Foundation funds new research on MOOCs

University of Toronto LogoBy Brianna Goldberg. Three University of Toronto research teams are among the successful applicants in a competitive grant competition run by Athabasca University and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The teams will receive funding for their research into the experience of teachers and students of Massive Open Online Courses, commonly known as MOOCs, and the impact of this emerging field.
“A year ago when we started teaching our first course, MOOCs were quite new, but we've now moved to the point where we've taught the courses and we want to know if learners find them effective,” said Professor Jennifer Campbell, who teaches computer science at Uof T and has led two Learn to Program MOOCs. “It’s exciting to be able to use this new research to delve a bit deeper and see what’s going on.” More...

The Decline of Wikipedia

cover of latest MIT Technology Review magazine issueBy Tom Simonite. The sixth most widely used website in the world is not run anything like the others in the top 10. It is not operated by a sophisticated corporation but by a leaderless collection of volunteers who generally work under pseudonyms and habitually bicker with each other. It rarely tries new things in the hope of luring visitors; in fact, it has changed little in a decade. And yet every month 10 billion pages are viewed on the English version of Wikipedia alone. When a major news event takes place, such as the Boston Marathon bombings, complex, widely sourced entries spring up within hours and evolve by the minute. Because there is no other free information source like it, many online services rely on Wikipedia. Look something up on Google or ask Siri a question on your iPhone, and you’ll often get back tidbits of information pulled from the encyclopedia and delivered as straight-up facts.
Yet Wikipedia and its stated ambition to “compile the sum of all human knowledge” are in trouble. The volunteer workforce that built the project’s flagship, the English-language Wikipedia—and must defend it against vandalism, hoaxes, and manipulation—has shrunk by more than a third since 2007 and is still shrinking. Those participants left seem incapable of fixing the flaws that keep Wikipedia from becoming a high-quality encyclopedia by any standard, including the project’s own. Among the significant problems that aren’t getting resolved is the site’s skewed coverage: its entries on Pokemon and female porn stars are comprehensive, but its pages on female novelists or places in sub-Saharan Africa are sketchy. Authoritative entries remain elusive. Of the 1,000 articles that the project’s own volunteers have tagged as forming the core of a good encyclopedia, most don’t earn even Wikipedia’s own middle-­ranking quality scores. More...

Harvard and MIT's Online Education Startup Has a New Way to Make Money

By . Even non-profits need to eat. It’s been about a year and a half since massive open online courses (MOOCs) achieved notoriety, and the industry now has three giants: Coursera, Udacity, and EdX. Coursera and Udacity are West Coast-run, Stanford-spawned, for-profit standard-style startups.
EdX is different: It launched as an East Coast, non-profit collaboration between Harvard and MIT.
EdX, then, is more of a mysteryAs a non-profit, it’s not concerned with, well, profit. But it is concerned with its own survival, so, this month, it debuted a new way of making money.
Until this fall, EdX had mimicked a tack Udacity and Coursera have taken: A “business-to-consumer” approach, in which students pay the course provider to verify their identity before they take a class on EdX.org, a kind of certification of achievement. More...

Augmentation, not Replacement…

By Erik Duval. At the EADTU conference in wonderful Paris, France, MOOC’s are of course the dominant topic. And yes, of course, this crowd of “Distance Teaching Universities” feels a bit uncomfortable about newcomers that, not hindered by any knowledge of the domain, suddenly attract the press attention and the students, as well as the euros and dollars, in what was for decades their turf…
So, I was very happy to try and do a ‘mooc free’ talk, on learning analytics. The official title of my talk was “The Transformation of Higher Education and the role of Learning Analytics” – not a title I could have come up with. Although that title did include the proper amount of grandeur for a talk at the Sorbonne, it made me a bit uncomfortable, as I don’t know how to transform Higher Education. If I’ve learned anything over the past 2 decades, it is that Higher Education is remarkably resilient to any kind of deep change…

Keynote presentation delivered to Open Access Week, Nova Scotia Community College

Stephen DownesOpen Access and Open Learning- Keynote presentation delivered to Open Access Week, Nova Scotia Community College, Online via BB Collaborate.
Over time, as resources have become more open, open learning has come to mean a form of learning where students can pick their own resources, identify their own learning goals, and set their own pace. More recently open learning has come to include concepts like open assessments and open credentials. In this talk, open learning advocate and pioneer I discuss the evolution of open learning, highlighting the vital role played by open access, and discuss current and future trends, including massive open online courses (MOOCs), learning analytics, and personal learning environments.

English: why the discipline may not be 'too big to fail'

http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/magazine/graphics/logo.pngRobert Eaglestone and Simon Kövesi ponder the problems that could sink the subject. English, the biggest discipline in the arts and humanities, is beset by some of the roughest storms in its history – and, unlike some other subjects, it is almost totally unprepared. The ship is holed, the sails are ripped and yet the sailors – usually known for their loud dispute, critique and dialogue – are inert and silent.
English has always been intellectually dis-united. It has no common methodology, no shared aims. While from the outside people assume they know what English is (reading, thinking and writing about literature), those of us within the subject spend ages agonising about what and who we are. We’ve had theory wars and culture wars; we’ve fought over the canon, gender, race, genre, language, history and class; we’ve had Oedipal spats with drama academics (they left, mostly) and creative writers (they’re staying, mostly). And the truth is, literary critics like intellectual crises. We live for them, in fact. More...
