Invitation

EDEN is pleased to announce its 28th Annual Conference hosted by the VIVES University of Applied Sciences in Bruges 16-19 June 2019.
CONNECTING THROUGH EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
In search for contemporary learning environments
How can information and communication technology in the age of Industry 4.0 create and enhance synergies between online learning programmes, the increased diversity of stakeholders, the workplace experience, socio-cultural influences and students’ work-life balance?
To transform the education landscape, challenges come increasingly from the socio-cultural-economic, structural and policy fields. Education has to be visionary to reach efficiency gains, new sources – and to offer sustainable services, reflecting the complexity of modern societies.

Market realities and social responsibility put similar pressures on the corporate and University worlds. Stakeholders expect academia to respond to needs beyond teaching and research, better promote innovation and the knowledge economy, manage the new student populations. Universities are expected to detect and attract talents, be magnet of inputs from practitioners, resulting cooperative surplus.

Vocationalisation of education also means the emergence of new skillsets. The progress in industrial automation and ICTs opens possibilities for lifelong learning resource developments, for work based learning and integration of human-machine intelligence models.

Educational technologies are about connections among information, knowledge, action, emotion and value: knowledge construction, learning activities by sharing and thinking, interactivity, aggregative mechanisms, cooperation and integration – to meet the requirements of the knowledge age, to satisfy the needs of social transformation and learning innovation.

New generation of learning technologies and networks are ubiquitous, embedded and mobile which reshape access to and delivery of learning. Cutting edge fields are artificial intelligence, learning analytics, microlearning, new credentialing, revolution of assessment, massive open online courses (MOOCs), personalized learning, game-based learning, flipped classroom, Digital Makerspaces and alike.

The question remains: Which one(s) of these will have significant and sustained impact in the future? Can the network society become an enhanced learning society?

Conference Tracks

For the EDEN 2019 Annual Conference, the major tracks set-up will be:

  1. Global connections: How to organise online study programmes that enhance the students’ international competences, provide connections with international partners and promote virtual mobility?
  2. Connections with workplace: How can innovative study programmes be developed to involve the workplace impact and experience (virtual dual learning, (distance/digital) internships)?
  3. Connections with the community: How to organise study programmes that focus on relations of curriculum, delivery and the socio-economic environment – like community service learning, social partnerships, interdisciplinary projects?
  4. Connections with learners: caring about the work-life balance of the students, attentive to learners’ needs, expectations and the changing behaviour of diverse student populations including career, other studies, family-life.

Call for Contributions

Contributions are invited which resulted from own research, project achievements, case studies, theoretic and conceptual work onthe conference theme and tracks and the creative use of educational technology.

Submissions, taking into account the conference theme and related to at least one of the conference tracks are welcome in paper, poster, workshop or panel discussion session and demonstration/technical presentation formats.

Networking and interactivity, sharing and discussion will be core aspects of the conference, focusing on what you can learn from and with your peers.

Join the conference in Bruges to share your research, projects and experienceto make the conference showroom of best ideas and cases!

Important Dates and Deadlines

Submission deadline for contributions: 4 February 2019
Notification of Authors: 9 April 2019
Registration opens: January 2019
Conference Dates: 16-19 June 2019

Conference Venue: Bruges, Belgium

Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Markt square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.

The Markt area also features horse-drawn carriage rides and 17th-century houses converted into restaurants and cafes. The Basilica of the Holy Blood houses a venerable Catholic relic, the focus of a huge parade every Ascension Day. Begun in 1220, the Church of Our Lady took around 200 years to build, and is home to a “Madonna and Child” sculpture by Michelangelo. The Kantcentrum (Lace Center) features lace-making demonstrations, while the Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan brewery offers guided tours. Exhibits at the Groeningemuseum trace centuries of Flemish and Belgian painting.

The conference is hosted by the VIVES University of Applied Sciences.

Neil Selwyn: Personalised Guidance and Support for Learning … What Could Possibly be the Problem?

neil selwynPersonalised learning has emerged as one of the key themes of technology-based education over the 2010s. Of course, the desire to make education more individually driven and ‘learner centered’ is a long-standing goal of progressive education, but it also fits with other values and agendas. As a counterpoint to many of the other papers presented at the EDEN 2018 workshop, this talk will consider some of the less-voiced limitations of technology-based personalised learning. These include an increased pressure on individuals to take responsibility for the success (and failure) of their education; the limitations of algorithmic decision making; the diminished role of teachers and other ‘experts’; and the humanistic and emotional aspects of no longer learning ‘together’ with other people – if only in terms of common content and experiences. The talk considers what implications these issues have for the future design and implementation of technology- based education, and finishes by considering a recurring tension – i.e. if we are all immersed in our own personalized learning journey what implications does this have for education as a social, supportive and shared endeavor?

Neil Selwyn is a professor in the Faculty of Education, Monash University. His research and teaching focuses on the place of digital media in everyday life, and the sociology of technology (non)use in educational settings. Read more about him here.

Sanna Järvelä: Socially Shared Regulation in Learning – Progress for Learning Success in 21st century

Sanna JarvelaBeing able to strategically regulate one’s own learning and that of others is a vital and increasingly important 21st century skill. Those skills include: (a) ability to adapt to new situations and challenges and engage in complex problem solving, (b) social skills necessary for communicating and collaborating productively and proficiently, (c) socio-emotional skills and empathy necessary for tackling challenging problems, and (d) ability to take initiative set goals, and monitor self and others. These competencies are the central to research on self-regulated learning and regulation of learning in collaborative contexts. Schools and education are tasked with preparing students with skills to self-regulate their learning and teamwork especially in situations that challenge them cognitively and socio-emotionally. In my research group, we have been especially interested in how groups, and individuals in groups, can be supported to engage in, sustain, and productively regulate collaborative processes. In this presentation I will introduce the theoretical progress of research on regulated learning, in terms of self-, co-, and socially shared regulation of learning. I will review our recent empirical findings of regulated learning in computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) context and discuss about practical implications of this line of research.

Sanna Järvelä, PhD, is a professor in the field of learning and educational technology and a head of theLearning and Educational Technology Research Unit (LET) in the Department of Educational Sciences, University of Oulu. Her main research interest deal with learning processes in technology-enhanced learning, self-regulated learning and computer supported collaborative learning. Read more about her here.

Workshop Sneak Peek

Open Education Passport Multiplier Event

oepass logoOEPass deals with the topic of micro-credentials, the most timely and relevant concept in higher education and adult learning. Don’t miss the opportunity to be updated in this important topic by experts in the field!

You are kindly invited to participate in the workshop introducing the concept and use of the Learning Passport, the initiative of the Open Education Passport (OEPass) project.

The workshop will explain how the Learning Passport facilitates the recognition of open education credentials in Europe. The workshop embedded in the 10th EDEN Research Workshop will take place on 25 October 2018.

Higher Ed is changing in nature. A new way of thinking is evolving, shaping a new paradigm of higher education based on modularization. In the centre of this paradigm, the vision of personalized patchwork pathways of higher learning, qualifications and certification is manifested. The workshop shows how this vision evolves, and analyses its consequences for higher education institutions, outlining also the challenges of our current practice. It will be followed by an introduction to the Learning Passport and concluded with a practice session about the use of this new tool. More information will follow on the Research Workshop website. Research Workshop participants can register to the OEPass workshop here.

Road to Bruges Workshop – Research networking for the next EDEN Annual Conference

This workshop is devoted to finding links to develop joint international researches with the aim of presenting results at the forthcoming EDEN Annual Conference which will be held in Bruges, from 16th to 19th of June 2019. The intensive workshop introduces participants to build a network of interested members with specific knowledge in order to develop a joint proposal for the EDEN Annual Conference

Participants will gain new insight into the upcoming research themes creating small working groups organising participants by research interests, delivering successful paper proposals. We will propose a specific speed dating session. If a meeting has worked (the interest is reciprocal) a group with involved participants will be created. The aim of this workshop is to create new networks between the participants and to ensure that these newly created research groups can present a successful proposal at the next EDEN event.

Social Events

Welcome Reception

The Welcome Reception will be held in the UOC main building, a few steps walk from the Cosmocaixa Museum, where the Research Workshop will take place. It offers an informal setting to meet and chat with your fellow conference delegates while enjoying a delicious evening snack.
