The transition from industrial to knowledge based economies will require deep changes in the way we educate children, students and adults.
The Jagiellonian University guest house lies on Florianska Street (picture) in the Old Town.
We expect libraries and library educators to be deeply involved in these changes. The future tools of education will be based on the web rather than on paper documents.
In this paper we explore the transition from traditional to web-based learning through a concrete case: an international summer course designed on and for the web. We find that the web supports a production-oriented – rather than lecture-oriented – approach to learning and allows us to engage and integrate a very heterogeneous group of participants around multimedial production tasks.

On June 1-2, 2009 the Institute of information and library science at the Jagiellonian University of Cracow arranges en exiting conference:
I’ve called my paper Big change. Learning and teaching in a digital world. You have just read the abstract. The full paper is here.
I am also preparing a set of PowerPoint slides for the actual presentation. This time I will try to be as visual as possible. When the time comes, you’ll find them on SlideShare.
Before Easter I bought three books on presentation design. They advice simplicity. Vivid ideas are more effective, and also more fun, than loads of facts. So there.
