| TWENTY-SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LEARNING |
Universidad San Pablo CEU
9-11 July 2015
The International Advisory Board is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Twenty-second International Conference on Learning and the Call for Submissions to The Learner Collection of Journals. The 2015 Learning Conference will be held at the Universidad San Pablo CEU in Madrid, Spain, from 9-11 July.
SPECIAL CONFERENCE FOCUS
'What Counts as Learning? Big Data, Little Data, Evidence and Assessment'
The "digital revolution" is changing the ways in which students do their work, and also the ways in which teachers source curriculum content and plan learning activities. They also transform the sources of data that provide evidence of student learning. The fields of educational data mining and learning analytics offer perspectives on an important and newly emerging area of innovation in the learning sciences. As students undertake more of their learning in computer-mediated environments, an evolving cluster of technologies and associated pedagogical processes offer great promise to provide solutions to some long-standing practical challenges in the field of education. The larger potential of continuous formative and progress assessment based on many small data-points is to make redundant summative assessment in its traditional forms, or at least to supplement traditional summative assessments in a way that compensates for their intrinsic limitations.
Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, poster presentations, or colloquia are invited that discuss the broader themes listed below. In addition to the special focus, paper presentations will be grouped into one of the following categories for presentation at the conference:
Theme 1: Pedagogy and Curriculum
Theme 2: Assessment and Evaluation
Theme 3: Educational Organization and Leadership
Theme 4: Early Childhood Learning
Theme 5: Learning in Higher Education
Theme 6: Adult, Community, and Professional Learning
Theme 7: Learner Diversity and Identities
Theme 8: Technologies in Learning
Theme 9: Literacies Learning
Theme 10: Science, Mathematics, and Technology Learning
Presenters also have the option to submit completed papers to one of fully peer-reviewed journals in The Learner Collection of Journals. If you are unable to attend the conference, you may still join the community and submit your article for peer review and possible publication, upload an online presentation, and enjoy subscriber access to the journal.
Proposals are reviewed on rolling deadlines. The final proposal submission deadline to qualify for regular registration is 3 MARCH 2015 (title and short abstract). Proposals submitted after this day will be accommodated in non-themed sessions at the conference or are eligible for community membership registrations (no attendance at conference required with community membership presentations).
