EC-TEL 2019 offers the opportunity to host half-day or full-day workshops. Organisers interested in coordinating a workshop are requested to submit a proposal by filling out this form (http://bit.ly/ectel19WSprop), no later than 29 April 2019. Successful proposals will be confirmed by 13 May 2019.
Workshops are expected to promote the conference theme –transforming learning with meaningful technologies– and topics, further elaborating how learning technologies can add educational value to the different stakeholders and contribute to efficient and effective education. Workshop organisers are encouraged to propose innovative and interactive formats, which will be given priority in the selection process. The workshop selection will be handled competitively: proposals will be ranked according to their fit with EC-TEL 2019 conference topics, innovativeness, extent of interaction, overall quality, and comprehensiveness of planning including an insight on how sufficient submissions and participants could be achieved. In case of overlapping workshops, organisers may be contacted to clearly differentiate the workshops or to merge them.
Workshop organisers must indicate:
- whether they plan their workshops as full-day or half-day events and provide a preferred workshop day (either 16th or 17th Sept 2019). Due to space restrictions and potential overlapping with the mLearn topics, we cannot guarantee to meet these preferences
- the workshop’s organisation timeline, including at least the submission deadline (around mid-late June) and notification date (at least two weeks before the end of the early-bird registration)
We plan to support the workshop dissemination by including the workshop timelines and links to their websites on the EC-TEL 2019 conference website. Nevertheless, accepted workshops are expected to launch their websites (latest by 3 June 2019), identify workshop participants, and handle the call for workshop contributions as well as the publication of workshop outcomes. In publishing the workshop contributions, workshop organisers are encouraged to target high-quality publication outlets (international impact-rated journals, including special issues within them).
