Book Project: Learning with Technologies in Learning #cfp #elearning #research #springer

There is a new book project we would like to invite interested authors named „Learning with Technologies in Learning

In six sections (see sections’ calls for chapters), this edited volume aims to contribute to the discussion about how to agree upon standards to design and organize learning with technologies, how to streamline future developments using online delivery, multimedia content as well as machine learning in educational settings in higher education and respective institutions, and how to put respective measures for quality assurance and validation processes into practice. This work will present a rich resource for contemporary and future design considerations in technology supported higher education.

We plan to publish this book in the first half of 2022 in Springer publishing house (Cham). At this point, we are in negotiations about the book with the publisher and expect a final decision by and contract signing with Springer by mid-April.

[CfP] EMOOCs 2021 #research #callforpapers #conference #moocs #emoocs21

I am very happy that 7th EMOOCs conference will be held in Potsdam next year – in June 2021. Together with Anja Lorenz I will chair the exeperience track and if possible I would love to see you on site.

Now the Call for Papers is online and we invite you to participate:

The Experience Track sessions will provide participants with the opportunity to debate and learn more about the role, current trends and future directions that MOOCs are taking to continue their online learning delivery in Higher Education. The track will bring together diverse stakeholders to discuss four important areas around MOOCs. First, by discussing best practices in MOOC production processes, quality assurance, with emphasis on sustainable models that address the issue of certification and credentialing. A second focus is on the incorporation of pedagogy and MOOC design elements that can bring rich learning experiences, as well as new innovative teaching and learning models that can match the expectations of the stakeholders. Third, we also invite contributions that reimagine and bring new affordances to the role of technology in MOOCs, such as the development or use of new virtual learning environments and social spaces, interactive and interoperable learning objects, immersive and wearable technologies, or techniques such as a gamification, and how all of these impact student engagement and learning outcomes. Last, the multiple roles of analytics within the MOOC ecosystem, for example to systematically optimize production or measure quality, to quantify the effectiveness of different learning designs and models in terms of learners’ engagement and outcomes, or to be included as part of new technological analytics products such as dashboards, adaptation or recommendation engines.

Find the final call right here at the conference website:

Deadline for your contribution is 15th February 2021.

[CfP] Positioning Artificial Intelligence in Education –Evidence and Reflections #ijai #reseach #tugraz

We would like to call for you contribution to a call for „Positioning Artificial Intelligence in Education –Evidence and Reflections„. We would like to do a special issue for the International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI).

Due to recent technological advancements, artificial intelligence (AI) has received increased attention and has been adopted to many sectors and fields, thus, producing a profound impact. Given the rapid advancement of AI, it is expected that AI will continue to develop, integrate deeper and in many different sectors. Although the application of AI in the educational sector has been the subject of research for more than 30 years, a renewed and enforced interest in AI in education can be documented through the themes of scientific conferences, workshops and research papers, as well as how the Edtech industry is increasing efforts to integrate AI in educational applications. Indeed, this development is not unexpected considering that AI is associated with potentials of more personalized, adaptive and inclusive learning, and with empowered teachers and advanced learning environments. This Special Issue aims at highlighting contemporary research that covers AI in education. We are looking forward to receive both theoretical and empirical papers that provide readers with a better understanding of the theoretical discussions that are currently taking place, the empirical studies that are conducted, and the AI applications and systems that are developed

Submission of full paper: December 10, 2019

[journal] International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI) #learninganalytics

I am very proud to announce a rather new journal – called „International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI)„. I will assist the Journal as Deputy Editor:

The newly launched International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (www.i-jai.org) aims to increase knowledge and understanding of ways in which learning analytics (LA) and artificial intelligence (AI) can support and enhance education. As such the journal aims to connect researchers and other stakeholders that share a common interest in understanding learning and teaching and improving learning and teaching with the support of LA and AI. Thus the journal aims to bridge the gap between pure academic research journals and more practical publications.
