Call For Papers

Peer Review, Peer Assessment, and Self Assessment in Education
2nd International Workshop
(PRASAE 2015)

collocated with

The 2nd International Conference on Smart Learning Environments
(ICSLE 2015)

23-25 September 2015, Sinaia, Romania


* Abstracts submission: 29 May 2015
* Paper submission: 3 June 2015
* Notification: 17 June 2015
* Camera ready & registration: 1 July 2015


Methods like peer review, peer assessment and peer tutoring can be
beneficial for learners, who can compare and align their knowledge with the
others, learn to express themselves, and argue out their opinions. Self
assessment, on the other hand, encourages reflection and contributes to key
competencies such as accurate self evaluation and work organization. The
importance of these strategies has recently increased with their
applications in virtual learning environments (VLEs, either Web- or
mobile-based), and more recently with the conception of smart learning
environments (SLEs) and massive open online courses (MOOCs), where the
instructors may be greatly outnumbered by the learners, and thus peer and
self feedback may be the only one that is available.

The workshop aims to attract researchers established in these areas, as
much as any researchers who are interested and want to learn about these
topics. The participants will benefit from getting in touch with the
community, and they will learn about fundamental issues and latest research
results. The workshop will foster discussion, exchange of experience, and
joint collaboration.


PRASAE 2015 focuses on innovative learning strategies related to peer- and
self-derived feedback:

* Peer review and peer assessment
* Group assessment and collaborative assessment
* Self assessment
* Peer tutoring

We seek paper submissions considering these learning strategies in
education, in contexts such as (but not limited to):

* VLEs, MOOCs, web-based learning scenarios, mobile learning, and smart
learning environments
* Combining such learning strategies with the educational process in
schools and universities
* Their applications in context of informal and self-driven education
* Exploring their relation with social learning and other learning theories
* Development and evaluation of pedagogy and didactic methodology for
applying such learning strategies
* Acceptance, motivation and other psychological aspects of these learning
* strategies
* Meta assessment and other techniques improving such learning strategies
* Analysis and evaluation of learner's outputs from tasks related to these
learning strategies
* Development of applications and tools supporting tasks related to these
learning strategies
* Use-cases, evaluation, experience


The workshop seeks submissions of (a) original research results, (b)
summaries of own recently published results, (c) surveys of fundamental
research papers in this area, (d) position papers discussing relevant open
problems and opinions on how to approach them, and (e) demo proposals. The
selection of papers will be based on originality and contribution, but also
on the potential to bring interesting discussion topics to the workshop.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the program
committee. The review process will be blind but not double-blind (i.e.,
include the names and affiliation of authors). Accepted papers will be
published in the ICSLE 2015 proceedings volume in the Springer LNCS series.
At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and
present the paper at the conference. The form of presentation (talk or
poster) will be decided together with the acceptance, depending on the
number of accepted papers (but papers will be included in the proceedings
volume regardless of the paper type and presentation form).

Papers should be submitted in PDF and formatted according to Springer LNCS
