Formateurs, pourquoi et comment digitaliser les formations ?

Par . Le modèle SAMR – pour Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redéfinition, élaboré par Ruben Puentedura,  nous donne une grille de lecture de l’introduction du digital dans la formation.

We have seen many volunteers help those trying to cross borders by providing food, drink, clothes, medication and other forms of help, we’ve also seen Germany open its doors to welcome many refugees coming from war torn countries such as Syria and Iraq. Whilst some refugees have found safety, their future prospects and lifestyle still remains uncertain, many of them wish to begin or continue studying. However without the correct paperwork this can prove to be quite a challenge, as receiving the necessary documentation can take a while. Kiron University is an online German university that is crowdfunding a project to help refugees through the form of Education by offering them the opportunity to be able to study for a degree in the five following areas, tuition free.

HEW Newsletter – Foreword to the September 2015 Edition

http://www.iu.qs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/qsiu_logo7.pngBy . Innovation is one of the themes that many of those seeking broader global rankings of universities would like to be able to include.

http://www.iu.qs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/qsiu_logo7.pngBy .

HEW Newsletter – QS World University Rankings by Faculty

http://www.iu.qs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/qsiu_logo7.pngBy . The QS World University Rankings by Faculty provide a more accurate comparison with last year’s results than our overall QS World University Rankings does. They are not affected by the methodological change that has caused extra volatility in the main rankings – this being the change in how citations are measured. Instead, the high level of stability in the Faculty Rankings illuminates the impact of the switch to normalising citations by faculty area. Few of the leading universities in any of the five faculty areas have moved by more than five places. More...

http://www.iu.qs.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/qsiu_logo7.pngBy .

These measures are unchanged for the new 2015/16 Rankings. But as we explain here, the use we make of the data we collect has been improved markedly this year. More...
