Call for participation: ICLS Workshop on Learning Analytics for Learning and Becoming in Practice
18 februari 2014
A Workshop at the International Conference of the Learning Sciences 2014

Workshop held Full Day, Monday June 23, Boulder, Colorado, USA

Learning Analytics sits at the intersection of the learning sciences and computational data capture and analysis. Analytics should be grounded in the existing literature with a view to data ‘geology’ over ‘mining’. This workshop explores how analytics may extend the common notion of activity trace data from processes to encompass practices, with a working distinction for discussion as:
Process – series of related actions engaged in as part of learning activities
Practice – repertoire of processes organised around particular foci recognised within a social group
The workshop intersperses attendee presentations/demos with relevant theme-based discussions.
We're looking for contributions that advance our understanding of the challenges related to using activity trace data to document learning practices. We invite short papers (<4 pages) and demonstrations; accepted submissions will receive short (<10 minute) presentation slots in the workshop. All accepted papers should describe: learning analytics used; the theoretical base/learning science concepts and frameworks drawn on; how their work uses data traces to generate evidence of processes, practices or both; their contribution and/or further areas for discussion. We welcome a variety of papers, including:
Conceptual/theoretical papers might establish a framework for thinking about practice in the context of learning analytics, perhaps providing conceptual analysis of distinctions between practice and process, or the kinds of data and data sources which might be productive in such analysis
Empirical papers might report learning analytics research agendas taking practices as their object of analysis
Technical papers might survey and explain why particular computational techniques and tools may be of particular relevance to practice-based analytics or report a specific tool’s development
Demonstrations will provide motivations for particular systems and ideally link to a demo movie or live demonstration that enables reviewers to see a version in action. We are particularly keen to see submissions for live demos which will receive a slot in the afternoon session.
Papers should use the conference template, and be emailed to Simon Knight with the subject line: ICLS14 Workshop.
Submissions should be made by March 28th
Submission Deadline March 28th

Invitation conference "Education and Training for European Teachers"
28 oktober 2013
The German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) will host an international conference on “Education and Training for European Teachers: Competence Models, Curricular Objectives and Harmonising Theory and Practice” on January 20th – 21st 2014 at the Zollverein World Heritage Site in Essen, Germany. Please find the invitation on behalf of the Vice-President for Studies, Teaching, Teacher Education and Further Education, Professor Dr Holger Burckhart, and the conference programme attached.
An important issue to be addressed in the course of this event will be the question of how research-oriented education and professional practice in different phases of teacher education and training should be coordinated in terms of curricular objectives, organisational structures and institutions, and how these phases should be tuned and adjusted. This question cannot be reasonably discussed without considering the specific structures and distinctive features of national teacher education systems in Europe. We therefore renew our kind request to submit contributions for a poster exhibition on different approaches to teacher education and training in Europe, and to harmonising theory and practice in teacher education and training in particular. Please find the call for poster submissions attached as well.
Education across Europe from a historical perspective: a photographic conversation
22 oktober 2013
Call for pictures Linked to next year's anniversary, the Histories of Education Network (NW 17) of EERA is planning an e-book and invites researchers from all EERA member countries to send in 1 or 2 (historical) photos linked to education plus a short text of about 500 words. These small essays and the respective photographs would then be published in the form of an e-book which will officially be launched at the next ECER in Porto. More information can be found here in the pdf document.
