Join the European survey on digital and on-line learning till Sep, 28

You may know that EUNIS participates actively in the Working Group on digital and on-line learning of the Directorate Education and Culture in Brussels. Our representative has been asked to disseminate the following demand among our members to respond to a survey on digital and on-line learning.

We, at EUNIS, would appreciate your participation to make the opinion of the true experts in the European universities heard. It would also show to the Brussels authorities that EUNIS is a partner of importance. They are awaiting your answer and the dead line has been extended to September 28th to give EUNIS members the time to answer.

You may access the survey by using this link . Thank you in advance for your participation.

“On behalf of the European Commission, Directorate Education and Culture (DG EAC), the Danish Technological Institute is conducting a survey on digital and online learning. The Member State Working Group on digital and on-line learning (WG-DOL) is established in the context of the Open Method of Coordination under the ET 2020 strategic framework for European cooperation on education and training.

The main aim of the working group is to foster mutual learning between Member States and to further policy development on digital and online learning.  To support that Member States are kindly invited to respond to the survey with focus on respectively the school sector and the higher education sector. The aim of the survey is to get insights into policies and practices on digital and online learning, priorities for collaboration and potential barriers to further mainstreaming.

Moreover, the survey aims to get an understanding of how digital and online learning is evolving in the Member States from the perspective of policy makers and to promote PLA within the WG-DOL.

We would appreciate that the survey is completed by yourself or other senior officials with responsibility for digital and online learning. We are aware that you may have varied level of knowledge on the situation for a particular education sub-sector.

We therefore propose that you invite other senior officials with expertise in digital and online learning complementary to your own expertise to complete the survey in order to get a broader picture of the state of play in your country. In countries with decentralized education systems you may also wish to provide some insights into the situation at the regional level, and you may therefore want to ask regional senior officials with responsibilities in digital and online learning to complete the survey.”
