Bienvenidos/as todas/os al XV Encuentro internacional Virtual Educa, que celebraremos en la ciudad de Lima, Perú, del 09 al 13 de junio de 2014.
Esta edición de nuestro Encuentro internacional tiene un sabor especial, ya que es el quince aniversario de lo que se inició como una reunión de expertos y responsables institucionales en Madrid, España, en el año 2000.
Avanzada la segunda década del SXXI, parece que los principios del milenio quedan muy atrás. Sin embargo es muy breve el tiempo transcurrido desde que nos preguntábamos si el día 1 de enero del año 2000 supondría un colapso de las computadoras y redes a nivel planetario, o empezábamos a ser conscientes de que la globalización y el cambio de paradigma iba a modificar la realidad en que vivimos.
The revamped version of Europe’s most popular student programme was signed into law on 11 December by European Parliament President Martin Schulz. Erasmus+ boasts a budget of more than EUR 14 billion for 2014-2020, nearly twice as much as its current funding, giving more than four million young Europeans the chance to study or train abroad.
Erasmus+, due to begin in January, is aimed at boosting skills, employability and supporting the modernisation of education, training and youth systems. It supports 13-30 year old students, trainees, apprentices, volunteers, teaching staff or trainers to seek education, training or even organised sporting activities in other EU countries. The leaders of youth clubs and voluntary workers will now also be eligible for Erasmus+ funding.
The programme brings together existing education and training initiatives Comenius, Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus, Leonardo da Vinci and Grundtvig, which maintain their names as they are already well known. It also includes the Youth in Action programme and for the first time covers sport.
Wed, 11/06/2014 to Fri, 13/06/2014, Warsaw,Poland, LLL Universities & the European Policies on Social Investment.
Given the magnitude of challenges faced by Europe today, including population ageing as well as economic crisis, but also increasing pace of changes due to globalisation and technological development, it is important to seek for human capital development that would enable Europe to face these challenges. The European Commission recently announced its Social Investment Package, which guides the policy responses for human development. Lifelong learning universities should take the conference as an opportunity to discuss and define their understanding of the "social investment".

Following its successful 2013 International HETL Conference at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, the International Higher Education Teaching and Learning Association (HETL) invites you to attend the 2014 International HETL Conference, to be held in Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
About the Theme
In Being a University (2011, p143), Ronald Barnett talks about the emerging university of the future as an ecological university, where the ecological university is not only concerned with the natural environment but is concerned about “…a much wider ambit, embracing the personal, social, cultural, institutional and technological environments and knowledge of those environments; in short, the world in its fullest senses.” The ecological university thus endeavors to cultivate those interconnections through meaningful and diverse ways of learning and inquiry. A learning-scape, therefore, may be defined as a conceptual construct that shapes our perceptions of our learning environments. A learning-scape may be viewed as a mosaic of learning environments (i.e., a holistic learning ecosystem) interconnected and interacting at all levels. Personal, cultural, institutional and technological environments can have an enormous impact on learning-scapes because all these environments are intertwined and symbiotic to various degrees. Thus, we need to remind ourselves that curiosity, creativity, and meaningful dialogue and interactions are vitally important because they form the basis for and the context of our humanity and human learning. We need to remind ourselves that appropriate design of learning-scapes matters. More...
How do digital technologies transform the way we collect, organise, visualise and exploit evidence to inform future learning? The 12th International ePortfolio and Identity Conference (ePIC 2014) will focus on the theme of Evidence Based Learning.

As the MOOC debate gathers momentum, The Government Department for Business Innovation and Skills has published a literature review with the surprisingly catchy title of 'The Maturing of the MOOC' (BIS Research Paper 130, September 2013). This extensive document highlights the range and divisions of the MOOC debate. Among these, and of particular UALL interest, are the 'disruptions' MOOCs might cause, including 'the potential for MOOCs to disrupt the lifelong learning and adult learning sectors' (p101).
