SUPPORTING LECTURERS WITH ICT INNOVATION: CHOICES TO CONSIDER WHEN ORGANIZING A SUPPORT STRUCTURE FOR YOUR INSTITUTION

C. Bok, J. van Hees

SURFnet (NETHERLANDS)
Developing a well-designed teaching concept that makes optimal use of ICT, costs time and requires expertise. Not only expertise about the subject content, but also expertise about multimedia, animation, instructional design etc. This makes it a teamwork project in which different specialisms cooperate. How do you organize this cooperation of disciplines within a higher education institution?

SURF is publishing a whitepaper, based on 5 case-studies of different higher education institutions and the way they support their lecturers in revising their educational programmes: the TU Delft, Utrecht University, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Utrecht University of Applied Sciences and Saxion University of Applied Sciences.

Four elements of choice emerge:
- Should innovation be institutionalized in a specific ‘innovation programme’ within the university?
- Should a university equip its own professional video studio and hire experts for video, 3D, animations etc?
- Should the process of innovation be a bottom-up process, leaving the initiative mainly with the lecturers, or is some top-down pressure advisable?
- Should different support service for lecturers be combined into a one-stop-shop? (such as IT services, didactic advice etc).

In the presentation at Edulearn, we will deduct recommendations to higher education institutions, based on the choices these 5 Dutch institutions made. This will provide inspiration to institutions who still have to find their own answers to these questions.
