[CfP] GMW 2014 – Lernräume gestalten

GMW 2014Der Call for Papers für die Jahrestagung der GMW 2014 an der PH Zürich zum Thema “Lernräume gestalten” ist nun online. Als Mitglied des Steering Committee haben wir versucht die Ausschreibung einerseits sehr breit und andererseits doch fokussiert zu gestalten. Auf was man gespannt sein darf, sind die Möglichkeiten der Präsentationsform der Publikationen vor Ort. Aber dazu erfährt man etwas später an dieser Stelle sicherlich noch mehr.

[conference] EMOOCs 2014

EMOOCs 2014, Lausanne

EMOOCs 2014, Lausanne

It’s a great pleasure to announce the EMOOCs 2014, the “Second MOOC European Stakeholders Summit” in Lausanne, February 12-14 2014. Due to the fact that I am a member of the program committee of the Research Track I also like to point you on the Call for Papers (deadline 20th september 2013):

EMOOCs 2014, the Second MOOC European Stakeholders Summit, will be held on February 10-12, 2014 in Lausanne (Switzerland).

Organised by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and P.A.U. Education the event aims to be an opportunity to gather European actors involved in the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) phenomenon, from policy makers to practitioners and researchers. This conference is the follow-up of the MOOC Summit 2013.

The goal of the summit is to develop synergies among European universities around themes such as student assessment, MOOC accreditation, platform interoperability or joint research initiatives.

The conference will include four tracks (Policy, Experience, Research and Business), with 5 sessions of 90 minutes and a keynote speaker. EMOOCs 2014 will also offer a series of workshops, meetings and the tutorial “All you need to know about MOOCs”.

[CfP] Bildungsforschung: Nicht-pädagogisches Personal in Bildungseinrichtungen

Die Zeitschrift Bildungsforschung erbittet wieder Beiträge für die nächste Ausgabe. Das Thema ist interessant und birgt einiges an Diskussionspunkten. Bernhard Schmidt-Hertha und Margaretha Müller suchen Beiträge über eine Personengruppe, die sonst in Forschungsbeiträgen der Bildungsforschung nur selten im Vordergrund steht: Das nicht-pädagogische Personal
Einreichtermin ist der 31.7.2013:

[CfP] Interaction in Massive Courses

Together with my colleagues from the University of Munich I like to call for submissions on the topic “Interaction in Massive Courses“. The contributions will appear as Special Issue of the journal J.UCS (Journal of Universal Computer Science) which is an open access journal and holds an Impact Factor.
Please consider to send us a scientific contribution on 9th June 2013 at latest, if the following sounds interesting and meet you research interests as well:

The Special Issue aims to gather research works in the field of massive courses with a special focus on enhancing interaction between lecturers-students or students-student in face-to-face situations or completely online by using different kind of technologies (MOOC). For example, some few information systems created some years ago, summarized by the term Audience Response Systems (ARS). Here students are able to make votes on lecturers’ questions by using mostly special hardware (Anderson et al, 2003). Other possibilities are the use of Web 2.0 technologies (Purgathofer & Reinhard,
2008) or Social Media (Ebner, 2011) to enhance students’ engagement in live-lecturing-situations. In the last years, the above-mentioned MOOCs attracted the interest of thousands of students. Obviously this leads to new challenges on how to overcome the management of a huge number of occurring interactions and makes new strategies necessary.
Assuming that rich interactions in large groups of learners are even more critical in the development of academia this Special Issue of the Journal of Universal Computer Science is dedicated to research on media fostering interaction in massive courses.

Here you will find the detailed Call for Paper (CfP).

[CfP] Open Access und Open Educational Resources

Zusammen mit Sandra Schön, Lambert Heller und Rudolf Mumenthaler freue ich mich über Einreichungen zur Schwerpunkt-Ausgabe der Zeitschrift für Hochschulentwicklung (ZFHE): Wie gestalten wir die Zukunft mit Open Access und Open Educational Resources?

“Open Access (OA) und Open Educational Resources (OER) sind in den letzten Jahren immer häufiger als Themen in den Printmedien und in der wissenschaftlichen Debatte vertreten. Beide verändern zentrale Prozesse an Hochschulen. Steht Open Access für den freien Zugang primär zu wissenschaftlichen Forschungsergebnissen, diskutiert man im OER-Sektor über die Verfügbarkeit und Nutzbarkeit von freien Bildungsinhalten in der Lehre und für das Lernen. Beide Bewegungen sind zwar unabhängig voneinander, aber beeinflussen und inspirieren sich gegenseitig und verwenden auch ähnliche Argumente. …

Wir freuen uns auch jetzt schon über alle, die sich bereit erklären, Einreichungen zu begutachten. Bitte kurze Mail an uns :)
