Mission Statement

General

The Commission 2 Work Plan 2007-2010 building on the experiences of the previous period tries to fulfill and implement the FIG Council Work Plan. Commission 2 in general aims

The mission and aims will be realized by the following Working Groups:

WG 2.1 "Curriculum development"

Quality curriculum and instruction are - as they have always been - the bedrock of education and the way to developing thoughtful and fulfilled professionals. The society, science and technology around our profession are changing rapidly. These changes continuously generate new educational and training needs, which should be responded by educators to ensure that their learners gain knowledge as effectively and efficiently as possible.

WG 2.2 "e-Learning"

To successfully disseminate the knowledge, it is essential to have an up-to-date learning environment. Thanks to the development in information and communication technologies, there have been lots of possibilities and tools re-engineer the classical teaching methods. Because of e-Learning methods are expected to play an increasing role in professional education there is a growing need for knowledge transfer on this field.

WG 2.3 "Educational Management and Marketing"

Knowledge dissemination is not only a methodological / technical problem. Institutes have to own the rights how the published materials may be available for others as well as taking commercial aspects into account. According to the rapidly changing world and demands in professional education business-based survey can help us to manage successful curricula.

FIG Working Weeks are inspired to give general overview on the results of the Working Groups while the Commission 2 working group workshops will focus on details.
