Participants in the
ePrep - SILLAGES Day

Under the theme "ICTE (Information and Communication Technologies for Education) for enhancing access to the Grandes écoles", the 2011 ePrep - SILLAGES Day brought together 61 participants (attendee list in French) from 9 countries (Algeria, Belgium, Cambodia, Canada, France, Morocco, Lebanon, Switzerland, Tunisia).

In the morning, the 2011 ePrep International Thematic Seminar, untitled "Innovative projects for international cooperation", was the occasion to discover projects developed by ePrep or by other organisations, and to discuss about four important themes in the domain of ICT for enhancing international access to establishments:

  • How to share resources between establishments in different countries (updating, archiving, sharing resources with international communities),
  • Student mobility and eLearning (the training of French students in foreign establishments, or the training of foreign students in French establishments),
  • "Culture" of TIC (some countries have been practicing TIC from a long time, because of their geographic distances for instance),
  • Human interaction through technologies and international exchanges.

The closing session celebrated the 10th ePrep anniversary.

In the afternoon, the 2011 SILLAGES Event, untitled "SILLAGES resources and community: results and prospects", provided an opportunity to present the SILLAGES online resources (free and well adapted for enhancing social and international access to the "grandes écoles"), and to think about the interaction between the communities gathered by SILLAGES and supporting organisations (Conférence des grandes écoles, UNISCIEL, CNED, Inria, APLCPGE, FESIC).

During the closing session took place the 2011 SILLAGES award ceremony for the best contributions to the SILLAGES Platform and the SILLAGES Wiki.
