Evaluation Perspectives: Interrogating Open and Distance Education Provision at an Australian Regional University
The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2004,
Abstract: Evaluation Perspectives: Interrogating Open and Distance Education Provision at an Australian Regional University Mr. Fons NOUWENS Ms. Jan THOMSON Ms. Elaina ROSS Dr. Roberta E. HARREVELD Dr. Partick A. DANAHER Central Queensland University Rockhampton-AUSTRALIA ABSTRACT This paper canvasses several of the issues framing current and potential strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of Central Queensland University s open and distance education provision. This discussion is informed by the notion of evidence-based practice, and by a conceptual framework of three distinct evaluation perspectives (Nouwens, 2004): management, teaching and learning. Derived from the work of Habermas, the framework elaborates the assumptions, practices and values associated respectively with promoting the technical, practical and emancipatory interests of learners.
Open and Distance Education in Global Environment: Opportunities for Collaboration  [cached]
The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2007,
Abstract: Distance education system in India has undergone many stages and phases of evolution before it really reached the stage of what is called open education, ICT-enabled education and global education. During these phases, it has assimilated different aspects of ICT with all applauds and has been able to go hand-in-hand with it transcending the national and regional boundaries. The distance education institutions have now started giving a serious thought to explore the possibility of cross-boarder expansion. The educational needs of the present society are changing very fast. The education is now being seen as an enabling tool for empowerment and all-round development of individuals. It is difficult for an institution to come up to all the educational requirements of the society. It is, therefore, time to collaborate rather than compete. Quality concern becomes a serious issue in such a situation. Consequently, globalization, internationalization, collaboration, networking have become the buzzwords of the day in distance education. In furtherance of this journey, Indira National Open University, INDIA organized an international conference on the theme “Open and Distance Education in Global Environment: Opportunities for Collaboration” under the aegis of International Council for Distance Education. The articles of the renowned educationists presented in the Conference have reserved their place in the volume under review. The volume is a repository of their experiences in the becoming of distance education all these years. The volume is spread over 32 chapters summed up into four major streams– internationalization are: collaboration and networking; ICT-enabled education; quality assurance; and distance education for development. The canvas of the volume covers the present scenario of open and distance education from the global perspective.The first part discusses as to how collaboration can be tamed to develop joint curriculum and deliver programmes of wider importance to larger heterogeneous clientele. Globalization is a popular phenomenon that includes the processes of economic integration, exchange of goods and services, and mobility of resources among others. The presence of GATS can be felt at appropriate places and the authors have tried to see distance education as a tradable commodity. The study of possibilities and challenges facing the distance education institutions in the wake of globalization has become imperative. The chapters in the second part discuss ICT applications in open and distance education. ICT can support designing “learner-centered
Learning to resolve real cases using computing tools for learning and collaboration. Experimental study in the context of university education  [PDF]

Abstract: Technology can act as a dynamic factor in the process of learning and of communication, generating a context in which people with different training and interests can work together to deal with real problems of major complexity, often badly structured and in different domains of knowledge.The expectations of improving the ability of users of information and communications technologies (ICT) are highly related with the way the full set of computing tools is used within the process of shared construction of knowledge.In this article we propose a model to demonstrate that the use of computing as a tool for the mind is capable of optimising the individual and group potential to reach expert knowledge. That is to say, ICT can affect our ability, at different levels of intensity, in the processes of learning to learn, learning to generate knowledge, learning by collaboration, if the conditions are those based on the principles of the theory of cognitive flexibility, transformational learning, and collaborative learning.The results are presented of research with 63 university students, speech therapists, and specialists in psychology and pedagogy who, using computing tools, had to solve eleven real cases of non-vocal children and adults who aimed to introduce improvements in their systems of augmentative communication. Two learning contexts are compared in the achievement of expert knowledge elaborated in a WebQuest format which uses resources on the Internet, one rigid, based on traditional tools which use protocols, and the other flexible, using "mindtools". Differences in the full use of the programmes between elementary and advanced students are demonstrated, in favour of the latter, who use databases and conceptual maps which are supported by the theory of cognitive flexibility.We discuss the need to make available computing tools for communication which allow students and professionals to create shared work spaces to deal with particularly complex real cases.

Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.99109
Abstract: The scientific collaboration, externalized through the formation of networks or research groups, has been used by researchers in the processes of production and publication of researches in the various areas of knowledge. On the basis of this, the aim of this article is to identify the structure of scientific collaboration networks in University Management among higher education institutions, based on the institutional links of researchers in this area. In terms of methodological steps, two data collections were done: one in the publications database of the Journal of University Management in Latin America (GUAL) to select the articles of interest in the research, and another in the current database of the Directory of Research Groups (DRG) of the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) to identify the research groups in University Management registered in the Directory. The main results evidenced the predominance of scientific collaboration in the production of research in the area and that the formation of networks is influenced by several factors, such as social aspects and professional aspirations of researchers, interests in sharing resources, as well as the geographical proximity of institutions.

Professions & Professionalism , 2011, DOI: 10.7577/pp.v1i1.149
Abstract: The aim of this article is to explore inter-professional collaboration in literacy education. It examines factors that facilitate collaboration between teachers and librarians and the contributions to literacy education. The study was designed as a research and development project in multicultural schools in Norway (2007-2011). Its theoretical framework was cultural-historical theory of activity theory, and the theory of expansive learning. The methods were formative intervention, interviews, participant observation, and qualitative and quantitative analysis of student literacy. In the study, interprofessional collaboration made significant contributions to professional development and literacy education. Interprofessional collaboration was developed as a collective learning process. It was facilitated by research interventions, development of a shared object of activity and work with new theoretical concepts and cultural artefacts. The findings indicate that inter-professional collaboration can make important contributions to realization of the mandate of the teaching and library profession.

Research in Learning Technology , 2010, DOI: 10.3402/rlt.v18i3.10761
Abstract: This paper examines a core leadership strategy for transforming learning and teaching in distance education through flexible and blended learning. It focuses on a project centred on distributive leadership that involves collaboration, shared purpose, responsibility and recognition of leadership irrespective of role or position within an organisation. Distributive leadership was a core principle in facilitating the transformation of learning and teaching through a Teaching Fellowship Scheme that empowered leaders across a regional distance education university. In parallel, a design-based research project analysed the perceptions of the Teaching Fellows in relation to blended learning, time/space, peer learning, innovation and equity issues in relation to distance education.
Collaboration Between Universities: An effective way of sustaining community-university partnerships?

Gateways : International Journal of Community Research & Engagement , 2011,
Abstract: This article highlights some of the opportunities and challenges that collaboration between higher education institutions (HEIs) can bring to the development of sustainable community-university partnerships. In particular, it explores the potential for universities to collaborate on building effective engagement mechanisms (such as helpdesks, ‘hub and spoke’ contact models, and research groups to review ideas for activities) that will support an ongoing flow of new projects and partnerships over time. It draws on evidence gathered from the evaluation and coordination of the South East Coastal Communities (SECC) program, an almost unique experiment in collaboration between English universities. In an ‘age of austerity’, opportunities to reduce costs without damaging core services are of particular interest to public funding bodies. The article suggests that collaboration between universities may be an efficient and effective way of engaging with local communities, but that it is not cost-free, and high-level strategic buy-in within HEIs is required if community-university partnerships are to thrive in the current higher education funding environment. The article also suggests that there may be a geographic dimension to effective collaboration between universities in both community-university partnership work and the mechanisms that support community engagement. Inter-university collaboration across the whole region covered by the SECC program has been much weaker than collaboration at a subregional level and within ‘city-regions’ in particular. This raises a key question: does the natural geography for effective collaboration between universities need to reflect, at least in part, the geographies of communities themselves, in terms of lived experiences and/or community representation? Such a debate has interesting and timely parallels in the United Kingdom, where the new coalition government is bringing about a fundamental shift in the geography of public administration, with the aim of both increasing democratic accountability and improving the spatial fit between policy interventions and economic and social ‘reality’.
