As you know, we are currently running an IJTEL Young Researcher Special Issue on Ground-breaking Ideas in TEL. Now all abstracts and reviews from the first round are available in our group on TELeurope (you need to be registered and logged in to see them). We invite you to explore the visions of the young researchers in the community, and to get in touch with them by posting your comments into the group blog. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Just a quick reminder: The extended deadline for the IJTEL Young Researcher Special Issue on Ground-breaking Ideas in TEL is approaching fast! You have until Jan 30 to submit a one-page abstract about the vision behind your research.
All details can be found in the Call for Papers. We are looking forward to your submissions!
I have previously talked about the IJTEL Young Researcher Special Issue on Ground-breaking Ideas in TEL on here. This special issue is directed at junior researchers in TEL, encouraging authors to write about the vision behind their research.
Now, I would like to alert you about two important updates:
- An ideas clinic has been created on TELpedia. Authors can submit an outline of their contribution capturing the main idea in a brief article.
- In addition to that, a flashmeeting will be organized on 15/11/2010 to provide feedback on these initial ideas, as well as to provide a platform for furthering cross-fertilization among authors. Please join our group on TELeurope to get all the relevant details for this event.
Please also note that the Call for Reviewers ends on November 20. Looking forward to connecting with you!
At the JTEL Summer School, I was invited to a guest editorial board of the International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning (IJTEL). The puropse of this board is to edit a special issue that is directed at junior researchers in TEL.
Today, I am very excited to present to you the Call for Papers and the Call for Reviewers for the IJTEL Young Researcher Special Issue. This issue is special in many ways:
- It is open to all junior researchers (post-graduate students, PhD students, post-docs) working in research related to technology-enhanced learning in both academia and industry.
- Authors are especially encouraged to submit a ‘visionary’ article, i.e. one that describes fresh ideas, motivations, impacts and efficiencies or ideal outcomes of research and argues why they are important.
- In the reviewing process, junior reviewers and experienced reviewers will work together in teams. Experienced reviewers will act as mentors for their junior colleagues.
