Aberta a Call for Papers para 11º Research Workshop (EDEN RW11)


Enhancing the Human Experience of Learning with Technology:
New challenges for research into digital, open, distance & networked education

The EDEN Eleventh Research Workshop – EDEN RW11 is to be held in Lisbon on 21-23 October 2020 in collaboration with Universidade Aberta and LE@D.

EDEN RW11 Site

Workshop Scope

The theme and scope of EDEN’s RW11 intends to reflect the current challenges researchers face regarding the impact of the emerging digital technologies and Artificial Intelligence in the improvement of the quality and the sustainability of the human learning experience. The capability of generating, processing and managing more data and information than ever before on the teaching and learning process is allowing for teachers and learners alike to be more in control. They can take better informed design decisions, track learning performance more accurately and in detail, anticipate problems more precociously and act accordingly, collect more learning evidences, as well as assess and credit more transparently. In short, they can shape together their teaching and learning experiences more efficiently and collaboratively.

By up scaling and accelerating the adoption of distance and online education across the world, the Coronavirus Sars CoV-2 pandemic has demonstrated the importance of rethinking the educational process as an integral part of the authentic digital life experience of its main actors. In this massive collective experience of change, the role of the educational institutions, of the teachers, of the learners, of their families and communities is rapidly transforming. As a result, new challenges for researchers have emerged that need to be addressed. How to assure truly equitable and social fair access to digital learning opportunities? How to conduct effective online learning with non-adult populations? How to improve teachers’ and learners’ digital competences for teaching and learning? How may AI and machine learning contribute to enhance the education process and make it more flexible and personal? How can we conduct more authentic and reliable digital assessment?

On the other hand, what are the ethical implications of the use of these digital technologies? How should learning processes be designed to contribute to the learners’ well-being and mental health? How should quality of online learning provision be assured? These and many other questions have been emerging within the specialised research community. A community which is itself experiencing a process of expansion due to the growing interest in the field.

The EDEN RW11 will be very focussed on the researchers and what they can learn from and with their peers. Drawing from the successful past experiences and adjusting to the new global environment, the workshop takes place in a digitally-enhanced setting where researchers including postgraduate students can share research, connect with peers and have adequate time to discuss the challenges of their work. The format of the event will promote collaboration and networking opportunities including parallel ‘research-speed-dating’ paper sessions, workshops and poster sessions. Dr. Tony Bates and Dr. Terry Anderson will serve as workshop moderators.

As a part of the programme, Prof. Alan Tait will moderate an Oxford-Style debate on the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the research on open, distance and online learning in a networked society, with the participation of the ICDE UNESCO chairs.

Similarly, on the first day, there will be an EDEN Fellows Walk & Talk event led by Prof. Alan Tait in which participants will be using their smartphones and mobile devices to participate in a collective discussion online while walking in their cities and home places.

The Scientific Committee encourages potential participants to either submit a paper or poster in the main programme or an abstract proposal in the PhD Symposium.

Workshop Themes

The research topics of interest are the following:

  • Online personal learning
  • Online education for non-adult populations
  • Teachers’ and learners’ changing roles in a technology-mediated environment
  • Open education ecologies: OERs, OEPs & MOOCs
  • Learning engineering and reengineering: design of learning processes for online and hybrid environments
  • Adaptive teaching and learning
  • Analytics for the improvement of teaching and learning: opportunities and risks of datafication
  • Gamification
  • Digital authentic assessment
  • Digital badges and micro-credentials
  • Next-generation digital learning environments
  • Extended reality (AR/VR/MR/Haptic technologies) use in education
  • Digital transformation of educational institutions
  • Quality assurance in open and distance education
  • Equitable and social fair access to digital learning opportunities
