Call For Papers
Conference name: International Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning (ICTEL)
Venue: Athens, Greece
Event Date:29 - 31, July 2010
Inspired by a myriad of emerging networks linking people, institutions and companies, the 1st International Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning, ICTEL 2010 focuses on innovative concepts of learning and networking both in the corporate and the regular education sector. The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who are working on next generation ICT enhanced learning solutions, both in higher education and companies. E-learning is currently passing to a next phase where connections are at the core of learning processes, involving people to share and co-create knowledge.
Training and learning have become critical assets in globalizing economies and ICT provide opportunities to make learning an integral part of our working life. In fact, learning is evolving into informal modes, self-regulated and productive. Universities will experience the increasing virtual mobility of students as they will function as nodes in networks of higher education institutions. Knowledge transfer from academia to the corporate sector will also be a major need in future economies, ICT enabling collaboration and the creation of new value chains.
ICTEL 2010 would therefore welcome those who are inspired about new ICT enabled learning concepts, new collaborative environments, and knowledge transfer from academia to the corporate sector. These issues will be an important theme in the years ahead because of the need for life long learning arrangements for all, whatever the level, wherever the phase of professional development. From a technology perspective these developments demand new platforms and tools, and attendees who are working in this field will meet in this conference an interdisciplinary audience of peers, educationalists, HR managers and policy makers.
The main focus of this conference therefore is on knowledge creation and learning in networks of academia with the corporate sector. With respect to this, ICTEL’10 addresses two main questions, namely:
1. How can technology help fostering the knowledge transfer from academia to the corporate sector
2. What innovative learning concepts can help improving learning at the workplace
The long-term aim of ICTEL hence is to support the development of innovative learning and knowledge creation in both higher education and the corporate sector. Regarding this, ICTEL will disseminate relevant research results, supporting these critical issues.
Papers may address one or more of the following topics:
1. Knowledge Co-Creation and Knowledge Maintenance in the Corporate Sector
2. Knowledge Transfer from Academia to the Corporate Sector
3. Open Educational Resources in Academic Networks and beyond
