5 Copyright © 2004 E-Learning Lab Aalborg University - main principles The pedagogical model: POPBL The research structure The regional co-operation The international dimension The securing of quality Lifelong learning – mixed mode Information and Communication technology and Innovation Overfor det klassiske universitetsideal (Humboldt) ser vi nu et krav og ønske om universitetets meget mere direkte anvendelse og samspil i den samfundsmæssige udvikling, bl.a. i konceptet om ”trible helix” som et samarbejde mellem det offentlige, private institutioner og videninstitutioner (universiteter). Som beskrevet af Jacobsen, 2001 p. 36 (med reference til Novotny, 1999). I ’modus 1´- den klassiske akademiske form for vidensproduktion – er det det akademiske samfund alene der afgør hvad der er god forskning. I den nye vidensproduktion ’modus 2’ ligger en væsentlig del af det samfundsmæssige ansvar i samarbejdet mellem forskere og brugere. (Jakobsen, 2001 p. 36).
