We decided to postpone JTELSS20 because of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sixteenth EATEL Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning will be organized in summer 2021.

We will give all applicants (both instructors and PhD candidates) a choice to keep their submissions valid for next year. And we will organize a small online meetup for the JTELSS community during the last week of May 2020.

Certificate of participation

Every participant of the summer school will receive a certificate of participation signed by the general chair and/or program committee members.

ECTS credits

The EATEL Summer School on Technology Enhanced-Learning offers an opportunity for PhD students to certify their participation and receive ECTS credits. To make this possible, the European Association for Technology-Enhanced Learning (EATEL) cooperates with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

NTNU runs a course Learning in Technology Rich Environments (DT8115) for PhD students. This course requires PhD students to study a provided syllabus of key articles on Technology-Enhanced Learning (adapted to the specific trends and topics presented at the summer school), write an essay, and take an oral [teleconference] exam, to demonstrate what they learnt. The essays and exams will be evaluated upon given criteria. After successful completion of the course, the PhD students will be granted with 7.5 ECTS points.

NTNU will make special arrangements to allow all PhD candidates who attend the EATEL summer school to take the DT8115 course. The educational activities at the summer school are counted as part of course workload. More information about the course will be given later.

The PhD candidates who wish to take this course will have to identify this in their application forms. See Call for Participation for details.
