The European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) is a
unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to
address current challenges and advances in the field. Through EC-TEL,
established and emerging researchers as well as practitioners,
entrepreneurs, and technology developers explore new collaborations,
strengthen networks, and compliment their core experience.
Promoting and developing 21st Century Learning for 21st Century
Skills that meet contemporary needs and challenges is a key priority
within the European Union and constituent countries. Crucial questions
need to be addressed, such as:
* How can schools prepare young people for the technology-rich workplace of the future?
* How can we use technology to promote informal and independent learning outside traditional educational settings?
* How can we use next generation social and mobile technologies to promote informal and responsive learning?
This focus on skills, practice and impact is reflected in EC-TEL
itself. EC-TEL 2012 is, for the first time, specifically appealing to
Technology Enhanced Learning innovators, creative practitioners and
other representatives from e-learning more generally. Extended
demonstrations of prototypes and ‘TEL in action' will spark discussions
between different but complimentary groups, and be animated and
disseminated through live internet radio broadcasts. EC-TEL 2012 will
examine and improve the transitions between research, practice and
We invite contributions for demonstrations, workshops and project
meetings as well as academic research papers. A doctoral consortium will
also be organized concurrently with the workshops. See the extended
call for papers for more details: http://www.ec-tel.eu/call-for-papers

report on significant work in progress. Please submit a paper up to a
maximum of 4 pages describing your work and the results that you plan to
achieve until September 2012. A 1-page summary of this will then be
published within the EC-TEL proceedings.
2012 offers the opportunity to host several workshops. Parties
interested in organizing a workshop are asked to submit a proposal of
max. 4 pages outlining the theme of the workshop, workshop format,
expected participants and domains addressed, dissemination activities,
programme committee, and organizational requirements. Proposals should
be submitted via the EasyChair system of EC-TEL.
addition to the regular sessions and workshops, EC-TEL offers a unique
opportunity for European Projects in TEL to held face-to-face meetings.
Please contact the local organization chair at your earliest convenience
to book meeting rooms.
doctoral consortium will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to
present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in an
interdisciplinary and international atmosphere. Prominent professors and
researchers in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning will provide
feedback to the selected papers and participate actively and contribute
to the discussions. The Doctoral Consortium will take place immediately
before the EC-TEL 2012 conference. For details please refer to http://ec-tel.eu/submissions#dc
