KMi's new 7th Framework project ROLE kicked off its work in a meeting on 2 - 3 March 2009, in Lausanne, Switzerland. ROLE is a project on Responsive Open Learning Environments and is intended to connect well with established OU work on OpenLearn, current work such as iCoper, and then to new initiatives such as SocialLearn. The meeting was hosted by EPFL, Lausanne - who are also working with us on the new STELLAR Network of Excellence. ROLE’s cross- disciplinary innovations will deliver and test prototypes of high responsive TEL environments, offering breakthrough levels of effectiveness, flexibility, user-control and mass-individualisation. The work of ROLE will advances the state-of-the-art in human resource management; self-regulated and social learning; psycho-pedagogical theories of adaptive education and educational psychology; service composition and orchestration; and the use of ICT in lifelong learning. More pictures from the kick-off meeting can be seen here.
