Call for Workshops
Second European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
17-20 September 2007
With the advance of metadata standards, learning objects, Web 2.0 approaches to rip, mix & burn learning, wikis, blogs, syndication, user generated content, interactive TV, games and the ubiquitous availability of computing devices we can and have to offer more flexible learning services on a global scale. As one of the new objectives of the 7th Framework Program of the European Commission puts it: we need "Responsive environments for technology-enhanced learning that motivate, engage and inspire learners, and which are embedded in the business processes and human resources management systems of organizations". An important challenge is to bridge between informal learning strategies of the knowledge society and formal competence development programmes of organizations.
After the success of EC-TEL06, the Second European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning provides a unique forum for all research related to technology-enhanced learning, including its interactions with knowledge management, business processes and work environments. This is a competitive and broad forum for technology enhanced learning research in Europe and world-wide through specialized workshops and the main conference. EC-TEL 2007 provides unique networking possibilities for participating researchers throughout the week and includes project meetings and discussions for ongoing and new research activities supported by the European Commission.
The EC-TEL Workshops are intended to bring together pre-conference communities to work together on a common topic for technology enhanced learning. The context of this work should be the conference theme of Creating new learning experiences on a global scale.
Unlike some conferences, it is intended that EC-TEL workshops should be highly interactive and fully engage participants. To that end it is important that workshop submissions clearly indicate how invited speakers / facilitators will attract contributions from our community to their workshop session, and how they will help workshop attendees to contribute.
EC-TEL aims to support a limited number of workshops, so the level of quality of submissions is expected to be high. The workshops will run in the two days preceding the main conference.
Papers describing the workshop proposal should not exceed 6 pages (single spaced, 12 point Times New Roman style font). Workshop proposals should include a short statement describing the background and of each of the organizers, clearly illustrating their expertise in this topic. Workshop proposers should outline the names and topics of expected contributors/facilitators, and indicate why EC-TEL conference attendees would participate in the workshop. Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Workshop participants will need to register for the EC-TEL conference.
Enquiries and submissions should be emailed to the EC-TEL workshop chair:
The workshop proceedings will be published on-line as part of the CEUR Workshop proceedings series. CEUR-WS.org is a recognized ISSN publication series, ISSN 1613-0073.
