Author(s): Aparac-Jelusic, Tatjana; Schloegl, Christian; Žumer, Maja; Tammaro, Anna Maria
Subject(s): I-schools Central and South Europe education policy curricula development distance education cooperation in I-education
Abstract: The countries of Central and South Europe entered the 2000s with plans to restructure their higher education systems based on Bologna recommendations and some other EU supported guidelines. The Humboldt tradition at the universities in the region, necessity to introduce new academic profiles as well as the use of ICT in higher education, is leading the way towards the restructuring of existing programs or designing new curricula and to cooperation between the LIS and IS departments in the region. This panel will address the special concerns for restructuring curricula in the wider information sciences field (Library and Information Science - LIS, Information Science – IS, Records Management – RM, education for digital services etc) Panelists will address three questions with respect to i-schools developments and trends in their respective countries: – What are the basic concerns in developing new curricula in their respective countries? – How do the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary issues influence curricula design in IS? – What are the future steps, particularly in regard to regional cooperation? After each of the panelists will have presented his position concerning these three questions, they will discuss especially the issues on inter-/multidisciplinarity and on future regional cooperation. The audience of the panel discussion is invited to join this discussion.
