We are pleased to announce the 10th Joint European Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning, to take place from Monday, April 28th to Friday, May 2nd, 2014 in Malta. Pre-summer school activities are organized all day on Sunday, April 27th. The summer school aims to encourage participants to adopt a critical stance in thinking about the role of technologies in providing opportunities for learners and the potential of these opportunities in terms of learning. For this summer school the overarching theme is open innovation.

Call for Participation

Poster

The summer school provides a stimulating learning environment where participants get opportunities to: develop research skills; increase their knowledge base; collaborate with others in their own and complementary research areas; engage in debate; have access to experts in the field; and discuss their own work.

The programme covers topics from a broad range of domains which contribute to advancing the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. TEL research projects are encouraged to provide doctoral candidates with a perspective of the state-of-the-art research under study in their working groups. The programme will also include practical and methodological workshops as well as opportunities for doctoral candidates to develop their personal research and discuss their doctoral work.

In the meantime you can join us on Facebook or discuss on Twitter and elsewhere using "#jtelss14".

Applications

Doctoral candidates should submit their applications online before Friday February 7th, 2014. Please download the application form, fill it in, and upload it to EasyChair. Please tick the appropriate box: Doctoral Candidate Application.

Cost of Summer School

The cost for doctoral candidates is Euro 570 (including accommodation - 7 nights in double rooms, meals and excursions).

Call for Lectures and Workshops

If you would like to offer a lecture or workshop at the summer school we invite you to submit a proposal (about ½ page to a full page) describing your contribution, which should demonstrate how your presentation/activity will benefit the doctoral candidates attending the summer school (mainly early to mid-stage). If your proposal is selected it will be published on the summer school website.

We encourage interactive sessions rather than lecture-style presentations, and your proposal could include details about how you plan to engage the doctoral candidates. Lectures are usually no longer than 45 minutes and workshops are usually 90 minutes. Some workshops run 2 x 90 minutes. Lectures should provide students with insight into the state-of-the-art in one aspect of TEL or methodologies for conducting research in TEL. Workshops should provide hands-on opportunities to work with new technologies or develop research techniques.

Please submit your proposal to EasyChair. Be sure to tick the correct box: Lecture Proposal or Workshop Proposal. Please note that speakers and workshop organizers are expected to cover the costs of their trip and accommodation (typically through the TEL projects they are belonging to). Doctoral candidates applying to participate in the summer school are also invited to propose workshops. In this case they must make TWO submissions: the JTEL doctoral candidate application and the workshop submission.
