We are pleased to announce the 9th Joint European Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning, to take place from Monday, May 27th to Friday, May 31st, 2013 in Limassol, Cyprus. Pre-summer school activities are organized all day on Sunday, May 26th. 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.
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. For this summer school the overarching theme is ‘interdisciplinarity’ and the focus will be on the challenges and opportunities that arise from working at the boundaries of different disciplines.
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.
In order to increase social contacts among the summer school participants, the programme includes several social events. A variety of sport activities will also be offered to the summer school participants. Cultural excursions are organised on the Sunday preceding the summer school and the Saturday which closes the summer school.
Doctoral candidates should submit their applications online before Thursday February 14th, 2013 (extended). Please download the application form and upload it to jtel2013. Please tick the appropriate box Doctoral candidate application.
