The Coordinator for Education is Remmelt Veenkamp, for research and development Jose Ignacio Pichardo and Inger Kristin Heggdalsvik (HVL) will take over the job as web editors after Anne Karin Larsen.
During the Consortium management Group meeting on June 8th, a historical presentation of VirCamp was presented by Anne Karin Larsen, and the CMG members had the year report presented by Inge Vervoort. Then a report from the teacher meeting were shared and the next year workplan and budget was agreed upon.
As a result of courses partly developed by participants in the ePedagogy course, a suggestion was made for further work on these to see if they can be included in the VirCamp course portfolio, offered either to BA or MA students.
