posted 22 Jan 2018, 00:13 by ICO Education   [ updated 22 Jan 2018, 00:14 ]
August 22-24, 2018; German Institute for Adult Education (DIE) in Bonn, Germany

We cordially invite you to submit proposals for the 2018 joint Special Interest Group Meeting of EARLI SIG 6 & 7. The aim of this meeting is to share and exchange ideas about your latest research on Instructional Design and/or Technology-Enhanced Learning and Instruction. This meeting’s highlighted theme is:

Instructional Design and Technology for 21st century learning: Challenges, Solutions, & Future Directions 

In the 21st century, learning and instruction are becoming increasingly learner-centered. This is reflected by a rise in adaptive and personalized instruction, an emphasis on learner-initiated generative learning strategies, and an increased focus on self-regulated learning skills and learner motivation. Challenges in 21st century learning include the development of data and information literacy, issues of privacy and data security, and effects of globalization, digitalization, and migration on formal, non-formal, and informal learning. During the meeting, state of the art research within the field of learning and instruction will be presented, with special attention to technological advancements within this field. How are the trends and challenges listed above reflected in research on (technology-enhanced) learning and instruction? What are the challenges that we are facing, and what are possible solutions? What future directions are relevant in research on (technology-enhanced) instructional design? Please note that the highlighted theme does not impose any restrictions on submissions; all proposals that fit the scope of Instructional Design and/or Technology-Enhanced Learning and Instruction are most welcome.

The SIG meeting will be organized by EARLI SIG 6 & 7 in partnership with the German Institute for Adult Education (DIE) in Bonn. The institute is a member of the Leibniz Association, focusing on the preconditions of successful adult education and lifelong learning (https://www.die-bonn.de/default.aspx?lang=en&).

Bonn is best known for being the provisional German capital between 1949 and 1990. It still hosts several governmental structures, including the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, and 19 different institutions of the United Nations. Bonn is conveniently located in the centre of Europe and easily reached by public transport (plane, train). With this background, Bonn will be the perfect venue to host the EARLI SIG 6 & 7 meeting in 2018.
