Rapport du Groupe d’experts "Compétitivité et Emploi" - Commission 5 : "Efforts de formation des entreprises"

BfP- FPBEn juillet 2013, le Groupe d'experts « Compétitivité et Emploi » (GECE) a transmis un premier rapport au gouvernement fédéral. Dans ce rapport, le GECE s’est notamment penché sur les efforts de formation des entreprises. Un objectif légal a en effet été fixé en ce qui concerne les initiatives de formation. Il stipule que les entreprises doivent consacrer globalement 1,9 % de leur masse salariale totale à la formation. La réalisation concrète de cet objectif a toutefois fait l'objet de divergences de vue. Aussi, le GECE a été chargé d'analyser objectivement cette norme légale de 1,9%. Voir l'article...

La France des invisibles

Observatoire National de la Pauvreté et de l'Exclusion SocialeLa moitié des Français estiment être confrontés personnellement à des difficultés invisibles
Dans l’optique d’approfondir la compréhension du phénomène de l’invisibilité sociale dans toute la potentialité de sa diversité, des publics comme des difficultés auxquels il renvoie, l’Observatoire national de la pauvreté et de l’exclusion sociale (ONPES) a confié au CRÉDOC la réalisation d’une étude quantitative qui, loin de cibler des catégories de population préconstruites, identifiées par la recherche comme particulièrement exposées à l’invisibilité sociale, porte sur un échantillon représentatif de la population française.
Le constat probablement le plus marquant de l’investigation est l’ampleur du sentiment d’invisibilité sociale. La moitié des Français estiment être confrontés personnellement « très souvent » ou « assez souvent » à des difficultés invisibles, qui ne seraient pas considérées par les pouvoirs publics ou les médias. Plus largement, sept sur dix pensent que ce phénomène touche « beaucoup » de leurs concitoyens en France, et 85% que cela concerne au moins quelques personnes.

From Little Science to Big Science

SCNAT LogoThe number of scientists has been increasing exponentially for at least a century, with doubling times ranging from 10 to 15 years. The needs of the scientific enterprise are now beginning to strain or even overwhelm national resources and are irreversibly transforming science's soul. Not all changes are for the worse, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain scientific integrity, fair quality control and the spirit of cooperation within the scientific community. Coming to terms with Big Science is one of the major challenges of the next scientific generation.

Online interaction in higher education: Is there evidence of diminishing returns?

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningOnline interaction is considered to be a key aspect of effective e-learning and improved academic achievement. However, few studies have examined how effectiveness varies with the degree of interaction intensity. Using data for 17,090 students from three Catalan universities, in this paper we study the productivity associated with five different levels of interaction intensity in learning. More...

Improved fuzzy modelling to predict the academic performance of distance education students

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningIt is essential to predict distance education students’ year-end academic performance early during the course of the semester and to take precautions using such prediction-based information. This will, in particular, help enhance their academic performance and, therefore, improve the overall educational quality. More...
