Detail of Workshops for EC-TEL 2006

Workshop: Blended learning and SMEs

Abstract: We plan to apply a format that facilitates goal- oriented group discussions (among the workshop participants) inspired by an ?invited talk, in addition to the standard paper presentations. The?workshop will?have two general sessions, as outlined below. The first?session will look?at the prerequisites for Blended Learning in SMEs.?It will be kicked-off?by an invited talk Ray Rosdale (see above).?Presentations of case- studies and surveys will outline the needs and?requirements that arise for?training in SMEs. A second invited talk?outlining a e-Learning industry?perspective will conclude this?session. The second session will aim to develop guidelines and recommendations for Blended Learning in SMEs. Input from?participants is anticipated from participants in terms of empirical evidence for successful mixes and demonstration of systems that facilitate Blended Learning. Discussion in this session is encouraged through a panel of experts, as well as the extensive use of group work techniques?such?as online mind-mapping and flip-chart.

Workshop: Making of the Future of Technology Enhanced Professional Learning

Abstract: NoE Prolearn has facilitated large-scale foresight work ?that has resulted in a set of future visions for Technology Enhanced Professional Learning. This workshop will focus on defining the?critical capabilities needed to achieve the desired futures. The?workshop is organized?as a Learning Café ensuring that all?participants can have direct?impact on how the gap will be crossed.

Workshop: Exploring the potentials of networked computing support for face to face collaborative learning

Much research into technology-enhanced learning reflects a future  of online collaboration, distance learning and virtual teaching3. These  visionary views consider networked-computing support primary as a  means to bridge  time and space. It is assumed that these  collaborative technologies  connect learners who couldn?t collaborate  otherwise. This partial orientation  towards networked computing may  limit our understanding of the potentials  of such technologies for  collaboration and learning. Collaborative  technologies may also  provide effective support for learners who meet face-to-face to collaborate, to discuss and to solve problems (see e.g. Tyran and Shepherd, 2001). The starting-point of the workshop are the notions  that face-to-face learning situations are an important setting for  collaboration  and learning5 and that collaborative technologies can  support these processes effectively. We believe that one of the most  important challenges  for technology-enhanced learning is to provide  learners who are in  same room with the appropriate technologies that  will facilitate their  collaborative learning activities. The aim of  the workshop is to set some  directions of how this may be achieved.

Workshop: Life Long Learning Networks and Professional Competencies
The objective of the workshop is to identify and analyse current research and technologies in the fields in order to support  individuals, teams  and organisations to (further) develop their  competences, using all the distributed knowledge resources, learning  activities, units of  learning and learning routes/programmes that are  available online. This  workshop will bring together researchers and  experts from different communities (E-learning, Information Systems,  Database, Semantic Web)  interested in these issues and will deliver a  state-of-the-art overview of successful approaches and and will  provide guidelines for future research
Workshop: e-Failures
This workshop deals with opportunities to learn from failures in?the field of learning, education, and training. Those failures can be on ?different levels: maybe the concept or approach was mistaken, maybe?there were operational problems, maybe the organizational context?compromised the?project. It is the goal of this workshop to identify?and exchange (negative)?knowledge, to identify knowledge gaps and?research potentials. It can therefore?be seen as a dynamic knowledge?management process in a loosely coupled organizational structure.

Workshop: 2nd Workshop on Learner Oriented Knowledge Management & KM Oriented e-Learning
The objective of this workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary ?forum in which scientists and practitioners can exchange new ideas?and applications on Learner-oriented Knowledge Management and the use?of Knowledge Management technologies in e-Learning. The workshop will?build upon the?results of its predecessor LOKMOL?05 workshop which?was held at the International Conference on Professional Knowledge?Management (WM2005). This?year, the focus will also lie on the use of?techniques and applications?arising in the Web2.0 context: e.g.,?social software that enables individuals to?tag content and act both?as producers and consumers of content. Contributions on practical?applications are just as welcome as contributions on?current research?and research results.

Workshop: TEL?Communities of Practice
The proposed workshop focuses on current research trends in ?technology enhanced learning solutions that aim at addressing the ?multiplicity and complexity of needs of Communities of Practice all?along their lifecycle. The workshop seeks for quality research papers?that propose solutions?to the issues identified above. It advocates?for approaches that build?on the synergy of concepts such as?multimedia information authoring and?reuse, knowledge management,?argumentation and negotiation. It aims to?bring together scientists?and engineers who work on designing and/or developing the abovementioned solutions. Moreover, practitioners who evaluate?them?in diverse real environments. Particular interest will be given to approaches built according to well-established pedagogical principles.
