Transcript of "EC-TEL 2007 Wrap-up"

  1. 1. PROLEARN - Professional Learning for Europe Creating New Learning Experiences on a Global Scale EC-TEL’07 Wrap-Up Matthias Jarke RWTH Aachen University & Fraunhofer FIT, Germany President, German Informatics Society (GI) Program Chairs: Erik Duval, KU Leuven Ralf Klamma, RWTH Aachen University General Chair: Wolfgang Nejdl, L3S Organizing Chair: Martin Wolpers, L3S
  2. 2. Forum for TEL Communities The success of EC-TEL ’07 confirms and in some regards exceeds the success of EC-TEL ’06 as a leading TEL community forum In very short time established as the European outlet for top- quality TEL research Acceptance rate below 25% for full papers Work-in-progress in short papers, posters, workshops Special focus on young researcher promotion (doctoral consortium complementing successful Summer School) Not only scientific quality has re-confirmed the high standard Conducive setting for relaxed productive debate and excellent local arrangements Financially sustainable beyond ProLearn start-up funding … under certain assumptions © Matthias Jarke
  3. 3. Forum for TEL Communities (2) The success of EC-TEL ’07 confirms and in some regards exceeds the success of EC-TEL ’06 as a leading TEL community forum Successful involvement across the full scope of the extended EU 16 European countries represented in the 28 full papers, including several accession states Beginning outreach to global participation and networking Important forum for experience sharing and strategy discussion forum among European projects At least four associated project meetings associated (PROLEARN, COOPER, PALLETTE, PROLIX) Technology upgrade in the conference software to link into offsite/offline sharing (recording, blogs, wikis, …) Dialogue between TEL community and EU on future needs and opportunities © Matthias Jarke
  4. 4. Trends in the E-TEL `07 Debate information explosion and community creativity Increase personal, situated relevance of search Use of keywords and ontologies Dynamic preferences, multi-faceted ranking Accessibility of time-eating objects (e.g. video), multi-media and multi-lingual collections Empower communities and embed community tools in TEL Social bookmarking, social software paradigms, media- theoretic foundations A few ventures into organizational learning and KM De-construction of “pearls” (key services) from formerly monolithic systems as a basis for sharing, re-configuration, re-purposing TEL tools © Matthias Jarke
  5. 5. Trends in the EC-TEL `07 Debate (2) “Traces (in media or human brain) are left by absent activity so this activity is actually constituted as a concept by transcribing the trace, and this transcription changes future reality as well as the trace itself” © Matthias Jarke
  6. 6. Trends in the EC-TEL `07 Debate (2) “Traces (in media or human brain) are left by absent activity but this activity is actually constituted as a concept by transcribing the trace, and this transcription changes future reality as well as the trace itself” Many contributions in EC-TEL `07 enrich the realm of tracking, tracing, creating new abstractions and putting them to work Attention and motivation management (students and teachers) Error analysis and recommender systems Lifecycle tracking for learning objects Ontology extraction Guidance by formal policies, indicators, accessible standards © Matthias Jarke
  7. 7. Trends in the EC-TEL `07 Debate (3) Important open issues come to the foreground, challenging us for EC-TEL `08 and many years to come! Empirical background research on workplace context and learning needs (WHAT and WHEN to learn) … including the concern for valid research methods … and the need for considering the impact of changing user populations (e.g. from NerdNet to WomenNet) Societal impact on privacy, IPR/plagiarism/distortion, and dependence on critical infrastructure © Matthias Jarke
