FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Come join us for the 2nd European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning, from 17 to 20 September in Crete, Greece: four days of Serious Fun!

In one week almost 200 professionals, researchers and visionaries in the field of technology enhanced learning will meet in an unique atmosphere. To facilitate discussions and debate about creating new learning experiences on a global scale the conference has created exciting opportunities to communicate and contribute.

ONLINE PROCEEDINGS

– The conference proceedings are available to registered participants for four weeks around the conference week. Thanks to Springer for this opportunity.

– The workshop proceedings are online on http://www.ectel07.org

– The doctoral consortium proceedings are online on http://www.ectel07.org

This year’s exciting program includes the following highlights:


– RESEARCH FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

Several high ranking officials from the European Commission will present their views on technology enhanced learning, with a specific focus on research funding, the Framework Program 7 calls and other funding instruments.

– GLOBE
The GLOBE consortium of learning repository networks (http://globe-info.org/) will use its panel session to hold a public dialogue about your requirements for share and reuse and how it can address these. This will be a unique opportunity to learn more about this global community of repositories.

– INDUSTRY MEETS RESEARCH
There will be almost a full day of industrial sessions, where participants from IMC, BT, EADS, IDS, Synergetics and Giunti will present their experiences and lessons learned.

– TEL WORKSHOPS
Two days of workshops will precede the actual conference days: with topics ranging from social information retrieval to collaborative open environments for project-centered learning these workshops provide excellent opportunities for more in-depth presentations and discussion of specific TEL topics. Additionally a couple of project meetings will take place around EC-TEL 2007, e.g. the EducaNext Steering Committee Meeting and the PROLEARN Academy Meeting. If you are interested in ask for further arrangements.

– DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
The 2nd doctoral consortium will take place at Tuesday and offers an overview about innovative research approaches in Europe. The consortium is open and free of cost for all EC-TEL 2007 participants.
