The full program for the EDEN conference in Porto, Portugal, 6-9 June, is now available.
This is one of the major conferences for online and distance learning in Europe, and it is a good way to assess the current developments and status of the field, especially as Europe struggles with its economic difficulties.
I’ve pulled out a few personal choices to give you a flavour of what’s in store:
- Technology-Enhanced Learning for Creative Collaboration in Older Adults
- Pirkko Hyvonen, University of Oulu, Finland, Margarida Romero, Elena Barbera, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya – UOC, Spain
- Quiz em Movimento – A game to Stimulate the Intellect While Fighting a Sedentary Lifestyle (man, this one’s for me!)
- Barbara Amorim, Pedro Martins, University of Porto, Portugal
Challenges for Policies, Strategies and Leadership in an Increasingly More Open World
Gard Titlestad, Nick Moe-Pryce, International Council for Open and Distance Education – ICDE, Norway
Perceptions of Progress: Learning Analytics and Social Learning Behaviours
Deborah Everhart, Georgetown University, United States of America
- E-Learning Portugal
- Antonio Moreira Teixeira, Universidade Aberta, Portugal
The Clash between Generation X and Generation Y: More Myth than Fact!
Helene Raimond, Walloon Agency for Telecommunications, Belgium
Out of Chaos Emerges a New Order: Student Blogging and Communities of Learning
Steve Wheeler, Peter Yeomans, Oliver Quinlan, University of Plymouth, United Kingdom
- Personalisation in e-Learning – The Key for Success in Learning in Later Life
- Sonia Hetzner, Eline Leen, Innovation in Learning Institute – ILI, Germany
Apologies to the other equally excellent contributors worthy of mention that I’m omitting.
Wish I could be there. If you go and would like to do a report, I’d love to publish it.
Thanks for the post, Tony.
