MicroLearning Conference 2013 - Learning Outcomes and Mobile Learning

Yesterday,  I received the invitation for the micro-learning conference later this year. In the past the conference focused narrowly on the micro-learning approach. This year the conference seems to have broadened the focus (as one could see from the speakers).

The conference will take place on 26-27 September 2013 in Krems, Austria. If you are planning a submission, you should mark the 30 July 2013 in your calender. 


Call for Contributions

This ML conference is the only research oriented meeting which focusses on micro content and learning as a singular area of technology enhanced learning. It features talks, multi-session workshops and world-cafes on current research and findings regarding the use of technologies for designing effective learning environments. We are interested in sustainable methods and the easy use of technologies and tools for continuous learning in or at the workplace and related contexts.
Issues include among others:

  • Making mobile learning easy, enjoyable and sustainable
  • Measuring learning outcomes and optimizing the use of technology
  • Designing for specific learning objectives, user satisfaction, acceptance and positive motivation
  • Increasing effectiveness in the attainment of learning objectives and obtaining a return on educational investment
  • Impact of mobile learning on other e-learning forms
  • Effective integration of mobile in learning environments and blended learning programs 

Talks, lead participations (structured input): on present research, approaches, projects and results are invited from researchers, scientists and practitioners in the area of technology enhanced learning and effectiveness research and evaluation. Participation is open upon registration and payment.
