Call For Papers

Learning and Work (Deadline October 15th, 2012)

Today, over two thirds of our learning occurs at the workplace. Knowledge and skills needed at work are acquired at the workplace. We are witnessing the merging of working and learning environments that provide a wide variety of opportunities for learning, ranging from formally-structured training programmes to peer learning support and rich opportunities for informal learning. Technology solutions for supporting teamwork and collaboration are increasingly used also for training, especially when learners are scattered over a large geographical area. Simulations and virtual worlds have been successfully applied to train specialists on how to act in a state of emergency; nowadays they are commonly used to train service personnel. Performance support systems and embedded learning solutions are becoming general components of man-machine user interfaces.

Companies need to develop their personnel in order to remain competitive. This presents a range of challenges for the education and training sector, which must address how to best support training and professional development for workers and managers.

This issue of eLearning Papers, dedicated to the topic of Learning and Work, seeks articles dealing with trends and best practices on learning experiences in the workplace that show how technology can support new learning approaches and new skills, competences and qualification systems to match users’ personal knowledge development plans.

Submissions are invited to explore and share experiences related to the integration of learning technologies into the professional sphere. Papers can be more specifically aimed at exploring the following themes:

Competence-based learning and e-Learning
Personalised and adaptive learning services
Embedded learning and performance support
Games and simulations supporting induction and learning at work
Training in virtual worlds
Collaboration systems and virtual meeting rooms in support of workplace learning
Semantic Web convergence and interoperability
Generating learning content from information sources and the Web
Integrating Media and Learning Management for Mobile and Instant Learning
Online Validation and Qualification (such as badges, e-portfolios, etc.)
Computer and Internet Certificates
Informal and Non-formal Learning

The article submission closes on October 15th, 2012. The provisional date of publication is November, 2012. For further information and to submit your article, please contact:

Guest editor: Fabrizio Cardinali, C.E.O. (eXact learning solutions S.p.A. )
