The 12th European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning
12-15 September 2017, Tallinn University, Tallinn, Estonia

The European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) engages researchers, practitioners, educational developers, entrepreneurs and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field. This year’s theme of ‘Data Driven Approaches in Digital Education’ focuses on the new possibilities and challenges brought by the digital transformation of the education systems. The increasing amount of data that can be collected from learning environments but also various wearable devices and new hardware sensors provides plenty of opportunities to rethink educational practices and provide new innovative approaches to learning and teaching. This kind of data can provide new insights about learning, inform individual and group-based learning processes and contribute to a new kind of data-driven education for the 21st century.

The conference will explore how data can be used to change and enhance learning in different ways and to collect evidence for technological innovations in learning: for instance multimodal data, personal data stores, data visualisations for learner and teacher awareness, feedback processes, predictions of learning progress, personalisation and adaptation, as well as data-driven learning designs, or ethics and privacy policies for the data-driven future.

Papers should consider data at different scales (individual, group, class, massive) and different dimensions (cognitive, emotional, behavioral) of learner engagement with the technology. We are looking forward to receiving papers that address the conference themes and are informed by theories of pedagogy and evidence of effective practice. Qualitative papers offering robust meta-analyses or having visionary new educational designs are also welcome.

The venue for this year’s conference is Estonia’s capital Tallinn, the best preserved medieval city in Northern Europe directly at the Baltic Sea..
