Eighteenth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
Responsive and Sustainable Educational Futures
Aveiro, Portugal, 4-8 September 2023
ECTEL 2023 offers an opportunity to host half-day or full-day workshops. Workshops will take place on the 4th and 5th September. Organisers interested in coordinating a workshop are welcomed to submit a proposal by filling out this form https://forms.gle/ZY6FaaXt5XGSv5k68), no later than 5 May 2023.
Successful proposals will be confirmed by 19 May 2023.
Workshops are encouraged but not required to promote the conference theme – Responsive and Sustainable Educational Futures – and provide a venue for community building and idea generation for emerging research topics to groups of like-minded researchers and practitioners, further elaborating on how learning technologies can add educational value to the different stakeholders and contribute to 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 to achieve a balanced workshop program. Ideally, the ECTEL workshop program will comprise different formats, combining newly emerging, currently evolving, and established research topics. Proposals will be ranked according to their fit with ECTEL 2023 conference topics, innovativeness, the extent of interaction, overall quality, and comprehensiveness of planning including planned dissemination activities to recruit attendants. In case of overlapping workshops, organisers may be contacted to clearly differentiate the workshops or to merge them. We encourage interested organisers to propose not only “traditional” workshops with paper presentations but also other interactive types of workshop (e.g., tutorial).
The proposal should be submitted via this form (https://forms.gle/ZY6FaaXt5XGSv5k68) and workshop organisers must indicate:
- Workshop title and acronym
- Workshop theme, list of topics addressed
- Motivation on why the workshop is of particular interest at this time
- Workshop objectives and expected outcomes
- Proposed schedule and duration (full-day or half-day)
- Workshop activities that participants can expect
- The proposed timeline, including any tentative submission deadline for workshop participants.
We plan to support the workshop dissemination by including the workshop timelines and links to their websites on the ECTEL 2023 conference website. Nevertheless, accepted workshops are expected to launch their websites (latest by 7 June 2023), identify workshop participants, and handle the call for workshop contributions as well as the publication of workshop outcomes (if any). In publishing the workshop contributions, workshop organisers are encouraged to target high-quality publication outlets (international impact-rated journals, including special issues within them).
Workshop proposals will be assessed according to their fit with ECTEL 2023 conference topics, innovativeness, the extent of interaction, overall quality and comprehensiveness of planning (including planned dissemination activities to recruit attendants). In case of overlapping workshops, organisers may be contacted to clearly differentiate the workshops or to merge them.
