On this page you find an overview of the Special Interest Groups in EATEL. The SIGs and the people behind the SIGs enable, initiate and support a wide range of activities and events.
EC-TEL Advisory Board
The first EC-TEL conference was organized in 2006. Since then, the series of annual conferences has established itself as one of the main conferences on TEL and related fields. To ensure that the high standards will be met at future conferences, the EC-TEL Advisory Board reviews the bids for organization and provides advice and feedback to the organizers.
JTEL Doctoral Academy
This SIG supports Doctoral actions such as the International JTEL Summer School, which is now in its 7th year. Each year, approximately 50 students participate in this event. The overall figures and responses from both students and teachers are very positive.
The Special Interest Group for Professional Technology Enhanced Learning is a cluster to form a more coherent landscape of research in the area of Technology Enhanced Professional Learning. It brings together researchers, project managers and coordinators from national and international projects, to cooperate on a multitude of skills, ranging from discussions on thematic topics to administrative issues and exploitation.
Roadmap / Forecasting Activities
This special interest group continues the roadmapping activities that were inititated by the Networks of Excellence Kaleidoscope and Prolearn. This year’s focus was on the development of the iCoper roadmap.
The goal of this SIG is to stimulate the collection and usage of various datasets for learning analytics and TEL-focused recommender systems. The SIG will also focus on the legal and ethical issues regarding public datasets.
