ICDE Activity Plan 2013

2


INTRODUCTION The ICDE Executive Committee determines a yearly Activity Plan on the basis of the current Strategic Plan and available budget capacity. ICDE is a hub for its network of members and cooperating organizations, which means that the organization has an invaluable pool of resources and competence. The ICDE Secretariat relies heavily on close collaboration with member institutions to carry out activities and to achieve established goals. Furthermore, it is imperative that the Secretariat maintains good and fluid relations with key donors to avoid a decrease in funding. The Norwegian Ministry of Education is ICDE’s most significant donor and the organization must therefore ensure that the Norwegian sponsor's objectives and priorities are considered. An increase in membership and the identification of new funding sources are vital for ICDE to attain the objectives and to carry out the activities described in its Strategic Plan, as well as to provide quality service to its members and to support their initiatives. ICDE’s ties to UNESCO are of great importance for our organization’s reputation and international stature; active support for UNESCO’s work should therefore be given high priority. ICDE must be perceived as a relevant organization in order to retain existing members and to attract new members. Annual membership driven activities should be organized to increase ICDE’s membership. ICDE has members in all regions of the world in and ICDE must consider intercultural aspects in all areas of its work. The yearly Activity Plan creates the basis for projects and initiatives that in principle will follow the model below:

Figure 1: The project is conceptualized from the idea stage to a project description (or Terms of Reference, ToR). The project is executed, completed, and the results should be adapted to/adopted/implemented in a sustainable process.

ACTIVTITY PLAN 2013 Activities, initiatives and projects that are described in the 2013Activity Plan are activities that are initiated or ongoing in 2013. Initiatives and projects are described in general and may continue over several years. Specific targets, deliverables and resources limited to 2013 are specified where possible.

Approach: 

Replicate the methodology, approach and report scope of the U.S. higher education reports produced by the Babson Survey Research Group (BSRG) for the past ten years. Some of the characteristics to be replicated here are: o A focus of coverage over depth – use a relatively short survey to allow rapid and lower-cost data collection, to ensure the best possible coverage & high response rate. o An accessible report – designed for general readership, not as an academic publication. o Wide distribution – the report to be widely distributed as a free publication. o Multiple formats – the report to be distributed in multiple e-book and downloadable formats.

Predicted scope:   

Global coverage of distance education – published on an ongoing (annual?) basis. Primary focus to be on post-secondary education (higher education). Including the BRICS study. In addition to the main scope, the survey also aims to examine how – Universities and open and distance institutions with large student bodies in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) harness new technological developments to support knowledge societies. In the first phase of the survey this is foreseen to be solved by aggregating and analyzing data on a country level for these five countries.

Primary target audience:    

Ministers. Senior policy maker level. Decision makers on policy level. Senior management level in higher education institutions.

Phased approach:  

Begin with limited scope, concentrating on particular geographic areas and selected high-level topics – expand both the depth of coverage and the geographic reach over time (most likely over a threeyear period). Begin in 2013 with a focused approach starting with a feasibility study followed by a pilot survey early in the year to validate the instrument, methodology, and the procedures, the launching the survey. One of the objectives for 2013 is to “claim the space,” by having the first comprehensive global report on open, distance, flexible and online education.

Target respondent:  

The president of each institution. The report seeks to understand the strategy and understanding on distance education at the highest levels of the organization.

Partner organizations: 

Will contribute with content and advice, they include: o The Sloan Consortium o Babson Survey Research Group o UNESCO o ICDE o Others (global association, e.g. IAU, regional ODL associations and selected higher education institutions) may be added as appropriate

Primary topic areas, expected to be repeated for each year:   

7

Strategy – Why offer online/ distance education? What do you hope to accomplish? Value – What specific value do your see for distance education for your institution? Policy – Which polices are impacting (positively or negatively) distance education at your institution? What direction should policy take?

ICDE Activity Plan 2013


 

Enrolments – Measures of the numbers of distance students in different categories – compared to overall enrolments for those categories to show the penetration of distance education. In addition to the core topics that will continue from year to year, each annual survey may include a special topic reflecting changing interests and the evolution of distance education. The investigation of the potential role of MOOCs (massive open online courses) is one such possible additional area that could be investigated.

Resources: 

Includes in-kind support to be provided by: o Foundations o Partner organizations (access to membership lists, staffing, etc.) o Commercial sponsors o Secretariat time. o USD 14,000 reserved (from the BRICS study). o Each partner’s own resources. o Funding from donations/ sponsors.

1.3. Major ranking agencies to begin to focus on non-residential education before the end of 2015.  Initiate a dialogue with one or more ranking agencies to explore opportunities and barriers for including ODL in rankings.

Resources in 2013: 

Secretariat time.

Strategic objective 2: To encourage quality in open, distance, flexible and online education, including e-learning High quality ODL is a core priority for ICDE members, in particular in the current situation with rapid growth in ODL, rapid development in methodologies and technologies and disruptive, innovative initiatives with the potential for significant impact on higher education. The global trend is an increasing focus on accountability, quality, and performance, and there is a demand for standards and accreditation. ICDE has an important role in facilitating knowledge exchange and sharing of good practices to achieve excellence in ODL, and ICDE should facilitate members and regional associations building upon one another’s achievements. Key stakeholders, e.g. accreditation agencies, should be addressed with criteria and benchmarks for quality, and institutions should be addressed with methodologies and concepts for quality development. 2.1. To establish an overview of the global situation with regards to existing relevant standards and guidelines for open, distance, flexible, and online education, including e-learning by the beginning of 2013.  A study launched in 2012/2013 is foreseen to establish an overview as a basis for the development of future recommendations.

ICDE Activity Plan 2013


Strategic objective 3: To support the development of new methodologies and technologies In a time where ODL is in rapid development, information about emerging technologies and new methodologies should be successfully and periodically communicated to members. ICDE should promote the study of apparent and unpredictable/ unprecedented innovations and future disruptions in open, distance, flexible and online education, including e-learning. ICDE gives priority to promoting Open Educational Resources (OER) through several initiatives and through its members. The expected outcome is increased uptake of effect from OER. Despite the rapid uptake of internet and mobile technologies, there is a need for increased awareness of the digital divide and steps taken to minimize the divide. Furthermore, ICDE can play an important role in the facilitation of members’ initiatives to increase competence and professional development in distance and online teaching and learning. Open Praxis will have an important role to support the development of new methodologies and technologies. Open Praxis is now re-established, hosted by Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED), Madrid, Spain, an international editorial board and reviewers from all over the world. The first issue will be published in January 2013 and the journal is expected to play a strategic role in supporting academic scholarship, research and innovation among ICDE members and partners. The intention is that the hosting institution will be rotated at the end of the period of the Strategic Plan (2015/2016). 3.1. ICDE’s online journal, Open Praxis, to be re-launched and first issue published by the beginning of 2013. Resources: 
