EC Report: Digital and Online Learning

Education & Training 2020 report: Survey on policies and practices of digital and online learning in Europe

Under the E&T 2020 strategic framework for European cooperation on education and training, the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) provides a framework to support and foster dialogue across MS. Within the OMC, the Working Group on Digital and Online Learning (WG DOL) was established in 2014 as a follow-up to the Thematic Working Group on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Education. EUNIS participates actively in the Working Group on Digital and Online Learning.

The main aim of WG DOL was to foster mutual learning between Member States and spur further policy development on digital and online learning.

The WG DOL focused on how technologies and ICT can bring innovation into teaching and learning environments in Europe. Some of the key questions were about how digital technologies can contribute to organisational innovation in educational institutions, the quality models, processes, and tools that could enable innovation in teaching and learning to the benefit of learners, and how examples of innovative education can be scaled and mainstreamed.  This led to rich discussions in the working group about the characteristics of digitally innovative learning environments and the nature of the wider enabling framework conditions. Questions on quality assurance of open education resources (OER) and copyright continue to be a challenge for practitioners as well as for system level actors, and a wide range of approaches and concrete tools were presented. The WG DOL provided examples of how digital and online learning education policies and practices are implemented in Member States.
