To better connect with the VOR Divisions, and with the current major topics in educational research, ICO has decided to make some changes in the ICO theme groups. The theme “Innovative Learning Arrangements” will be divided into “Learning and Instruction” and “ICT and Education”. The themes that will be added are “Workplace Learning”, Neuroscience and Education” and “Higher Education”. 

At the end of November 2012, all ICO members will receive an e-mail on their current theme group(s), and will be asked if the want to switch to another theme, which better matches with their research.

Overview of the new ICO Theme groups, starting 2013:
1. Learning and instruction
2. ICT and education
3. Workplace learning
4. Teaching and teacher education
5. Domain-specific instruction
6. Educational design and curriculum development
7. Schools and the societal context of education
8. Assessment, evaluation and examination
9. Higher Education
10. Neurosciences and education

From 2013 onwards, the new theme group coordinators will be appointed, and new courses will be developed.
More information on the current theme groups can be found on the ICO website. More information about the new theme groups will be available soon.
