Call For Papers

TLAD 2011 - 9th International Workshop on Teaching, Learning and Assessment of Databases

11 July 2011

University of Manchester, UK


The teaching of databases is central to all Computing Science, Software Engineering, Information Systems and Information Technology courses. For the previous eight years, TLAD workshops have brought together those teaching database modules in order to share good learning, teaching and assessment practice and to explore which methods are appropriate to database modules and closely related areas.

The ninth workshop will be held on the day before the British National Conference on Databases at the University of Manchester and this year the workshop will concentrate on novel teaching and assessment approaches for database and database related modules, as well as covering other issues related to the teaching, learning and assessment of databases. It is intended that the workshop will include plenty of time for discussion, and so contributions are sought particularly in the areas of (but not restricted to):

- novel teaching areas and their relationship to databases;
- databases and enterprise level computing;
- creating suitable curricula for the rapidly evolving ways in which database technology is used;
- use of appropriate and novel assessment techniques;
- use of appropriate and novel database technologies to enrich the student experience;
- ensuring that theory and practice are balanced in database teaching;
- exploiting innovative teaching methods in order to enhance the student learning experience;
- exploiting effective learning and teaching mechanisms for distance learning;
- pedagogical and organisational frameworks and paradigms;
- adaptivity in learning systems;
- integrating the teaching of databases from schools, through universities to the CPD of those in employment;
- teaching of internet programming and their use of databases;
- teaching of ubiquitous and pervasive application programming and their use of databases;
- teaching of XML and its relationship with databases;
- teaching of data mining, data warehousing and OLAP;
- teaching of emerging topics and technologies including data spaces, the cloud, database forensics.

We would again like to receive contributions from those who have an involvement in teaching or developing learning materials in all forms of education who have considered the above issues and have some thoughts or solutions to offer. Research papers, demonstrations, panel and discussion topics are welcome.

Please send all submissions (papers, demonstration descriptions or panel/discussion group ideas) to All submissions should be made as PDF or MS Word documents. The proceedings will be published by the Higher Education Academy. It is planned that one "best" paper will be selected to also appear in the BNCOD conference proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS.
