ARTEL 2017 : 7th Workshop on Awareness and Reflection in Technology Enhanced Learning
Call For Papers
Awareness and reflection are viewed differently across the disciplines informing Technology-Enhanced Learning (CSCW, psychology, educational sciences, computer science and others). The ARTEL workshop series brings together researchers and professionals from different backgrounds to provide a forum for discussing the multi-faceted area of awareness and reflection. 2017 will be the 7th workshop in the series.
Through the last ARTEL workshops at EC-TEL (2011-2016) the topic has gained maturity and questions addresses are converging towards the usage of awareness and reflection in practice, its implementation in modern organisations, its impact on learners and questions of feasibility and sustainability for awareness and reflection in education and work. To reflect the growing maturity of research in ARTEL over the years in conjunction with the latest trends in TEL, this year’s topic particularly invites contributions that deal with moving from awareness and reflection to action. Changing individual behaviour and collaborative practice is very challenging, and we invite research that particularly deals with technology’s role in helping users take this step.
The workshop will include a paper session, a demo and prototype slam as well as an interactive session. The workshop aims at:
1. Providing a forum for presenting and discussing research on awareness and reflection in TEL.
2. Creating an interactive experience that connects participants’ research, current tools or latest prototypes and models with real end users’ learning experiences and requirements regarding reflection technology.
3. Creating an agenda for future ARTEL research and development.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Considering the multitude of views on awareness and reflection distributed over a wide range of disciplines the workshop’s general theme is encapsulated in the following questions:
- How can awareness and reflection support learning in different settings (work, education, continuing professional development, lifelong learning, etc)?
- What are the role(s) that technology can play in these contexts?
For ARTEL 2017 we particularly invite contributions that address the theme of moving from awareness and reflection to action. To answer the above and related questions, we are looking for contributions that address the following aspects:
- Theoretical discussion of awareness and reflection in TEL and related concepts (e.g., collaborative learning, creativity techniques, experiential learning, etc.)
- Methodologies to identify, study and analyse awareness and reflection in the context of (technology-enhanced) learning (quantitative and qualitative methods, learning analytics, visualisations etc.)
- Empirical studies about technology support for awareness and reflection
- Technology (design, application, evaluation) supporting awareness and reflection
- Designing awareness and reflection in TEL applications and processes
- Using awareness and reflection support to enhance the learning experience
- Awareness of social context, knowledge, artefacts and processes
- Awareness and reflection in specific contexts, such as higher education, work-integrated learning, learning networks, etc.
- Challenges and solution ideas to help users move from awareness and reflection to action, i.e. to changing individual behaviour and collaborative practice
- Full papers: Description of novel theoretical, empirical or development work on awareness and reflection in TEL, including a substantial contribution to the field (up to 15 pages).
- Work in progress: Ongoing research and current approaches on investigating the field, with initial insights for the community (up to 7 pages).
- Demos: Prototypes, design studies and tools for the support of awareness and reflection in TEL, which can be demoed and discussed (up to 3 pages).
All contributions will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee evaluating their originality, significance, and rigour. The papers will be published in the CEUR workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org). Submissions should use the Springer LNCS template (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
