Prompted by the success of a short workshop on Developing a Framework for e-Learning (as part of the 7th HEA-ICS Annual Conference in Dublin), this one day workshop for, and by, Educators and Researchers, will take place at the University of Greenwich, London, on Wednesday 6th June 2007 as part of the 1st eCentre Conference (6-8 June 2007), details here and here.
This workshop aims to make sense of the domain by attempting to answer a range of questions. Suggested themes:
a.. General Issues (State of the Art, e-Learning Standards, Learning Objects and Repositories, Digital Games)
b.. Technical Issues (Knowledge Management, Multimedia and ICTs in Education, Collaborative Learning/Groupware)
c.. Pedagogical and Didactic Issues
d.. Design for Learning: The way forward?
Participation in the workshop is open to all interested parties by registering for the workshop via the University of Greenwich website ecentre.cms.gre.ac.uk. Note that it is possible for delegates to attend the workshop (cost Â£75) without registering for the conference. To stimulate discussion on the day, participants are invited to submit thoughts, essays, and provocative and reflective statements, as well as position papers. Before, and during the workshop, these will be available for open viewing and response on the workshop website ecentre.cms.gre.ac.uk. On the day of the workshop we hope to have an interesting and focused debate.
Abstracts for Position papers (maximum of 500 words), essays, thoughts and statements should be submitted, preferably in word or pdf format, to D.Graham@gre.ac.uk. Contributors of selected abstracts will be contacted and asked to submit posters or position papers in full and to present these at the workshop. Papers and posters will be published in the conference proceedings. General enquiries can be directed to D.Graham@gre.ac.uk and email@example.com.
