EDEN EC meeting in Rome, Italy 21-22 February 2019

EDEN Executive Committee meeting took place in Rome, Italy 21-22 February 2019, hosted by University Roma III. Besides the usual items on the agenda as,  minutes from the last meeting, financing, next conferences, Fellowships etc. we dedicated time to work on strategic discussions for EDEN future! Each EC member had been asked to provide SWOT analyses in advance, and then we had a "Tour the Table", and a common SWOT was finally created. We planned to continue our good actions and we agreed and was excited about new initiatives. One of the other important items on the agenda was on How to deal with Brexit. It has been a long process prior to this meeting, at our online meetings during the year, especially since autumn and a  special working group together with EDEN Secretariat had prepared different scenarios, and a process forward. It is a really complex problem for a European Association as ours, as we are depending Operational Grants from the European Commission. 

As always great discussions and an open professional and personal atmosphere. EDEN is like a family, just love it. Since June 2018 in Genova, I am on my second period in the EDEN Executive Committee. Besides being an EDEN Fellow (since 2014) and EDEN Council of Fellows (since 2018), I am Chairing the EDEN SIG on TEL and Quality Enhancement, follow us at LinkedIn.

Quality in TEL on Macro-, Meso,- and Micro Level

Quality in Technology Enabeld Learning (TEL) is more than ever a hot topic, not at least because of the transformation of learning and education in the digital era, and the move toward Open, Online, Flexible Learning and TEL (OOFAT). Quality in TEL, can be discussed and measured from a vareity of perspectives and approaches. First, quality has to be considered at different levels, i.e. meso,- miso,- and macro level. Second, there are a huge variety of stakeholders whohave an interest in quality. Third, there are different approaches, as normbased versus processbased  quality assurance and /or  quality enhancement. Fourth, the maturity level has to be taken into consideration. Fifth, and last, or maybe even as a first issue:

QUALITY IS ALWAYS TIME, CONTEXT, AND CULTURE DEPENDENT, AND

QUALITY IS ALWAYS IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER
