Call For Papers

Differences in entry requirements and learning outcomes in the field of Information Science (IS) cause large mobility barriers and lack of uniformity among Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that offer Master degrees in IS. The Erasmus+ EINFOSE project seeks to find out the appropriate ways and modes of the harmonization and recognition of the entry requirements which would enable students from other fields to master learning outcomes at the graduate level of IS programs. The International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Sciences (FEIS 2018) is intended to stimulate discussion and reach commonly accepted recommendations that could serve not only to partner HEIs but also as a model for other academic disciplines.

Contributions and discussion are solicited from HEIs, their governing bodies, public authorities responsible for the implementation of EU guidelines and recommendations at the HEI level as well as representatives from national agencies for diploma recognition, ECTS implementation and Qualification Frameworks. Submissions are also invited from researchers and institutions to share their experience and accomplishments in recognition and mobility processes, building up the European Qualification Framework and its nationally based implementations, and in the implementation of new teaching/learning didactics and evaluation approaches and methods. Contributions from outside the EU are very welcome. It is expected that the exchange of ideas and experience in accreditation processes, cooperative efforts and joint programs at graduate and postgraduate level throughout the World might contribute to discussions about the future of education of Information professionals in Europe and Worldwide.

Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):
Educational trends in higher education worldwide
Information professionals in changing and challenging digital environment
(new profiles, old skills and new competencies, social role)
Entrepreneurship and the information professional
The future of information professional education
Ethical values in IS (Universal access, collaboration, intellectual freedom, fairness)
Multidisciplinary issues and relation with other sciences
(Computer Sciences, Digital Humanities, Economics, etc.)
Best educational practices and current challenges
Software tools and platforms for collaborative learning and teaching
Open educational resources
Role and responsibility of archives, libraries and documentation centres in higher education
Entrance into the labour market of IS graduates.
