Conférence annuelle d'EDEN
EDEN ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2008, LISBON
11-14 June 2008
The EDEN Annual Conference in 2008
in Lisbon will address the significance and impact of cultural issues in distance and e-learning development in Europe and beyond.
Cultural understanding in e-learning means gaining knowledge from other cultures and learning design solutions. The intercultural issue will be understood as the pooling and sharing of experience of the successful design and implementation of learning in diverse environments, where we can learn from each other.
We invite European academic and professional practitioners and in particular the EDEN community to contribute and share experience in Lisbon
on 11-14 June 2008, when the host Universidade Aberta, the Portuguese Open University will share with us the great pleasure of their 20th Anniversary and the celebrations.Details

CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING, EFFICIENCY AND QUALITY GO HAND IN HAND
Among the primary factors influencing the development and implementation of e-learning, those that look beyond just the aspects of technology and management are fast gaining importance. Introducing and embedding learning into every human activity is high on the agenda. The holistic approach in distance and e-learning requires a deep understanding: the ability to compare, understand and integrate. A well-understood intercultural approach is instrumental in re-structuring the educational enterprise and exploring new development scenarios.
Learning is becoming an increasingly personalised experience. We can learn practically everywhere and it is more and more the student who finds the ways to learning. The new generation technology solutions and Web 2.0 tools are necessarily cultural matters. Cultural understanding may help to raise and exploit fully the new eLearning concepts based on social web.
The year 2008 will be the year of intercultural dialogue, offering the opportunity to put the issue of learning cultures as the focus of the EDEN Conference.
