ECTEL 2018 Keynotes Announced

Last month I posted the call for papers for the ECTEL Conference in Leeds. This year the motto of the conference is Lifelong technology enhanced learning. The ECTEL progam chairs recently announced the keynotes for the conference.

  • Allison Littlejohn (Open University, UK) - "Professional Lifelong Learning".
  • Carolyn P Rosé (Carnegie Mellon University, USA) - "Lifelong Learning in a Web Scale Opportunity Space".
  • David Wortley (CEO and Founder of 360in360) - "The impact of disruptive digital technologies on education, medicine, health and well-being".

The three topics match nicely the scope of ECTEL from lifelong learning through scaling technology enhanced learning all the way to realworld and industry applications. Find more details about the keynotes on ECTEL's website.

If your are working and researching in the field of technology-enhanced learning, there is still a little time left for submitting your contribution. The submission cutoff date is 15 April 2018.

In case your busy with your Ph.D., then you should also consider joining the ECTEL Doctoral Consortium, which has a separate call and a application deadline on 22 May 2018.

This year ECTEL is aligned with the Medical Education Informatics conference (MEI18), which creates a nice opportunity for participating to both conferences with minimum overhead.
