CfP verlängert: 4th European Immersive Education Summit

For all who want to be part of the „4th European Immersive Education Summit“ in Vienna in November this year: The deadline was extended to 2014 July 20. Behind the „Immersive Education“ stand an impressing network of enterprises and NGO – from INTEL zu UNESCO, from Gates Foundation to Disney. Sounds interesting? More here. If you contribute to the IVLEATE14, it might be possible that I’ll read your contribution ;).

Continuing the success of the Immersive Education conference series, the fourth European Immersive Education (E-iED) Summit theme is:

„Science meets Business – From Innovative Research to Successful Services and Products”

The objective of the E-iED Summit is to bring together researchers, developers, educators, decision makers, and industry from all over the world. It covers broad aspects from emerging trends and technologies, sound research and best practices, to successful products and services. E-iED Summits feature virtual worlds, learning and motivational games, educational simulations, mixed/augmented reality, and related learning and teaching tools, techniques, technologies, and standards.

The E-iED Summit consists of scientific presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, and break-out sessions. A newly introduced hands-on demo stream combines a short paper presentation with an extended hands-on presentation for the attendees.  Following a bottom-up approach, special tracks and workshops cover emerging topics and trends suggested and organized by the community and focused groups. Also speed sessions enable participants to present an aspect of their work or interest in a fun and speedy way.  The summit will also offer a platform to explore research collaborations and give international research consortiums room to share their results.

For the main conference, topics of interest in the context of immersive environments include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Immersive Techniques, Systems and Devices

  • Behavioral and Pedagogical Analysis

  • Games and Entertainment

  • A Glance into the Future: Innovations, Challenges and Applications

  • Art and Creativity

Nun Geschichte – und nicht archiviert: Der erste Call for Papers als Slidecast

Es war einmal: Im Frühsommer 2009 hatten Martin Ebner und ich nicht nur die Idee zu einem Call for Paper über „Mashups for Learning“ für die ICL, sondern auch gleich die Ambition, für den Call Social-Media-Werkzeuge bzw. Multimedia zu benutzen. Damals waren „Slidecasts“ eine neue Möglichkeit bei Slideshare und man konnte hübsch einfach dort hochgeladene Files vertonen. Der Service wird nun abgeschalten, der Ton geht off und weil ich ihn nicht speichern kann, geht nun der (vermutlich) erste Call for Papers für eine wissenschaftliche Fachkonferenz der als Slidecast/Video aufbereitet wurde für die Nachwelt verloren. (Wir hatten übrigens viel positives Echo auf diese Aktion).

Aber nein, ich heule nicht deswegen 😀 – noch bis zu Deadline mit Ton online, danach Geschichte:

Hier, ich kanns nichts downloaden 😉

Call for Papers! Quality of MOOCs and other Papers on Innovation and Quality (INNOQUAL 1/2014)

Together with Grainne Conole, I ask for contributions for the next issue of INNOQUAL (deadline 2013/02/15)

The International Journal for Innovation and Quality and in Learning (INNOQUAL) is an open access, open peer-reviewed journal which provides an international perspective on the theory and practice of innovation and quality in the field of learning at all educational levels and in all training contexts. It focuses on the relation between innovation and quality in education and seeks contributions which discuss how technology can contribute to innovate and enhance the quality of learning.

INNOQUAL aims to

  • give insight into the scientific discourse
  • prompt important practical recommendations for learners and practitioners
  • promote new approaches in the field of innovation and quality development for learning;
  • an create an innovation forum for future oriented quality development of learning

The journal encourages two kinds of submissions

  1. First rate research articles by academics
  2. Case studies and reflective articles by practitioners

INNOQUAL is a critical view on technology, development, implementation, strategy, management and policy in the field of innovation and quality of learning.

Please feel free to comment and evaluate the first contributions of the issues (see here). To enhance motivation and collaboration the INNOQUAL team develops a special event 🙂 – more information about this at the beginning of 2014!


Call for Papers der iTeL – Interdisziplinarität von E-Learning

waiteritelAus der „Zeitschrift für E-Learning“ hat sich eine neue, Open-Access-Zeitschrift formiert,  die „Interdisziplinäre Zeitschrift für Technologie und Lernen“, kurz iTeL, die nächstes Jahr mit einer ersten Ausgabe ihr Debut hat. Da lohnt es sich dabei zu sein, auch um das Engagement der Herausgeber zu würdigen: Immerhin wird hier nicht nur das Abenteuer Open Access gewagt, sondern auch gleichzeitig Open-Review-Verfahren. (Ähnliches probiert übrigens auch die englischssprachige Zeitschrift Innoqual).

Einreichfrist für den aktuellen Call von Andrea Back, Peter Baumgartner und Gabi Reinmann ist der 7. Januar 2014. Gesucht werden auch Reviewer/innen und Sponsor/innen. Auch freuen sich die Herausgeber über Werbung jede/r Art.

In der Gründungsausgabe von iTeL, die sich bereits durch ihren Namen klar zur Interdisziplinarität bekennt, wollen wir diese Besonderheit zum Thema machen und fragen:

  • Welche disziplinären Zugänge zu Technologie und Lernen gibt es und was zeichnet diese besonders aus?
  • Welche Disziplinen können wie zusammenarbeiten, um Technologie und Lernen zu erforschen?
  • Welche Formen von Interdisziplinarität sind auf dem Gebiet von Technologie und Lernen erfolgversprechend?
  • Gibt es gute Beispiele für interdisziplinäre Zugänge und wie sehen diese aus?
  • Welche Hindernisse erschweren eine interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit?

New journal INNOQUAL invites to open review

The new open access journal INNOQUAL invites researchers to participate at the open reviewing of five submissions. More here:

Dear researcher with interest in innovation and quality in the field of learning and e-learning practitioners,

The European Foundation for Quality in E Learning (EFQUEL) will is preparing the launch of the “International Journal for Innovation and Quality in Learning” (INNOQUAL) which will provide an international perspective on the theory and practice of innovation and quality in the field of learning at all educational levels and in all training contexts.

One core mission is to create more open dialogue on research in the area. I am pleased to invite you to join the open discussion on five selected papers, which are candidates for the inclusion into the INNOQUAL inaugural journal to be published in April 2013. No registration, no downloads, no long review forms are needed. You can simply comment on the papers directly via google docs following our easy ground rules

All five papers are presented at the INNOQUAL website:

  • “Knowledge Exchange Across Borders – Internationalization of Open Education using Trusted Educational Networks”
  • “Transtitution – Transforming higher educational institutions through modernization of middle management”
  • ·“E-Learning quality assurance as a tool for open innovation in educational institutions: an Estonian case”
  • “A view on Personal Learning Environments through approaches to learning”
  • “Evaluating teaching and management innovations in an online university: the case of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya”

Get inspired, support authors who are willing to make review procedures more open, find peers who are also interested in discussing research in this area openly

Please note that INNOQUAL combines these open discussions with a double-blind review. Your comments will be taken in consideration by dedicated paper reviewers. You can learn more about INNOQUAL and our Hybrid Review Model online.

CfP für die bildungsforschung – Ausgabe 2011 (2)

Der Aufruf für Einreichungen für die Ausgabe 2011 (2) der bildungsforschung – Themenheft „Literalität, Schriftkultur, Analphabetismus“ (herausgegeben von Anke Grotlüschen, Franziska Bonna und Diana Zimper) – ist nun online:

Auch als pdf ist der Text zu haben. Nach einem mühseligen Umzug der bildungsforschung auf ein neues System und einen neuen Server ist einiges nachzuholen. Inzwischen gibt es eine Facebook-Seite, die auch auf dem Laufenden hält und es wird nach und nach noch einiges aufgeholt und aufgefrischt werden … Die bildungsforschung ist ja nun wirklich schon ein „altes“ Projekt und hat es dringend nötig (erscheint seit 2004!).

Call for photos and illustrations (#L3T)

We are caling for pictures and illustrations for each chapter of our textbook-project „Teaching and Learning with Technologies“ (L3T). Therefore we started a Flickr-group a couple of months ago, where we are asking for appropriate pictures under a creative-commons licenses. Please become a member and share your photos with an exciting community on Technology Enhanced Learning.

A general introduction of the project in English:
