Are you interested in a new, methodological EARLI SIG on online measures of learning processes?

In recent years we have observed an increasing interest in using objective online measures (such as eye tracking or data-logging) as opposed to offline, subjective ones (such as self-report inventories or retrospective interviews) to investigate learning and instruction and the processes that underlie the two. Based on this observation, last year we organized an EARLI Advanced Study Colloquium on this topic and found that there was a strong need for a discussion platform relating to the methodological aspects surrounding this topic. The last EARLI conference in Munich strengthened this impression. 

Consequently, we (that is Hans Gruber, Paul Kirschner, Halszka Jarodzka, and Ladislao Salmeron) would like to start a new, methodological EARLI SIG on this topic (for a preliminary description see attachment). To do so, we need to prove that there is enough interest among the EARLI members.

Therefore, we would like to ask you, if you would be interested in such a SIG and we thus can list your name in a communicate to the EARLI committee. To do so, please simply reply to this email with “YES”. As the next EARLI committee meeting is approaching soon, we would like to kindly ask you to do so within a week (i.e., until 4th Dec).

If you know a colleague, who could also be interested in this initiative, please feel free to forward this email!

We are looking forward to hearing from you,

Paul, Hans, Halszka, and Lalo
