6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education Let’s build transformative knowledge to drive social change

“Como nada es más hermoso que conocer la verdad, nada es más vergonzoso que aprobar la mentira y tomarla por verdad”.


"Al principio de las catástrofes, y cuando han terminado, se hace siempre algo de retórica. En el primer caso, aún no se ha perdido la costumbre; en el segundo, se ha recuperado. Es en el mismo momento de la desgracia cuando uno se acostumbra a la verdad."


Hoy traemos a este espacio otro sarao entusiástico de cambio y tal , .. y la verdá es que yo cada vez veo más la casa sin barrer , un pais que pronto estará instalado en el HAMBRE y la miseria , gracias a nuestra innovadora dirigencia e intelligentsia .. que no veo transformen nada más que para peor ... pero no se preocupen sigamos con los papers, y los eventos...dicen que cambio social , higher education, ... y conocimiento ... y la Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya que está ahí despidiendo cientos de trabajadores ... hacia la excelencia y la transformación .. hacia el infinito ... y más allá!!! ...  permítanme que me destornille por este en concreto .. sino que despues de 40 años de franquismo oficial y 40 años más de franquismo remozao .. no nos quea otra ...

Hoy les presentamos:   6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education
Let's build transformative knowledge to drive social change

This edition is focused on Knowledge, Engagement & Higher Education. The Conference will provide visibility and will critically examine one of the most significant trends: the growth of the theory and practice of engagement as a key feature in the evolution of higher education.
In the Conference, GUNi aims to approach the challenge of engagements by higher education institutions in the larger society in an integrated manner: it will explore ways in which engagement enhances teaching, learning and research; it will approach engagement in ways that accept the multiple sites and epistemologies of knowledge, as well as the reciprocity and mutuality in learning and education through engagement.
In exploring this contemporary issue, the Conference will attempt to describe how university-community engagement is evolving nowadays and will propose to go beyond by offering new visions and ways for the future. GUNi invites the international academic community to jointly analyze how to build transformative knowledge to drive social change.
You are cordially invited to attend Conference or nominate the member(s) of your institution. In this space you can find information regarding the conference, as well as details of its programme and contents.

The joy of Learning. Enhancing Learning Experience Improving Learning Quality. Oslo. 2013

Hoy traemos a este espacio a la
2013 Annual Conference
University of Oslo, 12-15 June 2013

Conference Scope

E-learning, open and distance education have been increasingly important fields of intellectual excitement and innovative development. The challenges posed by the new technologies are permanent, and students constantly keep teachers under pressure to develop. The human elements are moving to the forefront, employing creative methods and smart solutions. In Europe, despite economic and social pressures, there is a collective drive towards realising the creative potential.
Standards and accountability have also been emphasized but personalization of learning, individual and collective motivation, enhancement of the learning experience, and an overall improvement of learning quality are gaining ever-increasing traction.
Learning is becoming more and more individualized and self-managed. Personalization helps foster motivation and engagement, and supports awareness and motivation. Personal learning environments and personalized assessment (including learning analytics) offer resources to monitor and assess the  process.
How can we do our best to make learning a thrilling experience for learners, including providing a sense of joy in the virtual classroom?
The question is an exciting one and discussion and debate will provide a range of innovative theories and approaches, and help to determine the tools necessary to achieve our goals. Should they be about the smart use of ICT tools, new methodologies for enhanced learning experience, content management systems, or about fascinating inter-disciplinary solutions supported by e.g. game based learning, immersive environments, multimedia, etc. The answers we will find may be dynamic and or even provoking.

#eLmL 2013 . The Fifth International Conference on Mobile, Hybrid, and On-line Learning. Nice. France. Call for Papers

Hoy traemos a este espacio al
The Fifth International Conference on Mobile, Hybrid, and On-line Learning
eLmL 2012. February 24 - March 1, 2013 - Nice, France

Call for Papers
eLmL 2013 conference continutes bringing together federated views on mobileLearning, hybridLearning, and on-lineLearning. eLmL 2013 is dedicated to educators, eLearning experts, and students to exchange their ideas, experiences and lessons learnt in different facets of modern learning.
eLearning refers to on-line learning delivered over the World Wide Web via the public Internet or the private, corporate intranet. The conference is intended to provide an overview of technologies, approaches, and trends that are happening right now. The constraints of e-learning are diminishing and options are increasing as the Web becomes increasingly easy to use and the technology becomes better and less expensive.
As the ease of execution increases, more and more institutions are discovering the benefits of delivering training via the Web. Interest in e-learning is at an all-time high, and the workshop wants to serve as a stimulus to accelerate collaboration and dialog among the e-learning providers, trainers, IT researchers and the lifelong, self-directed learners. Such business trends as an increased global economy, the pressures for rapid development, and the necessity of teamwork are shaping the present state and the future of eLearning.
Employees are increasingly aware that they must continue to update and advance their skills if they want to understand the state-of-the-art technologies and remain valuable to their organizations. This means that learners will be more and more self-directed, and they will want access to what they need when they need it. The Internet based educational materials and the e-learning providers have to meet this demand.
The conference focuses on the latest trends in e-learning and also on the latest IT technology alternatives that are poised to become mainstream strategies in the near future and will influence the e-learning environment. Ubiquitous systems proliferate quickly due to the latest achievements in the industry of telecommunications, electronics, wireless, and economical globalization.
Wireless and mobility allow any user to timely use resources using various access technologies under (assumed) secured and guaranteed privacy. The family of the mobile devices expand dramatically, allowing a user to have a portable office everywhere, every time. Mobile learning became a fact, due to the technical accessibility and Internet communications. Many online classes, learning systems, university curricula, remote education, and virtual training classes are now part of the corporate education and use.
Progress is made in user modeling and adaptive learning models. The generalization of successful practices on mobile learning is favored by many national and international projects and policy synchronization boards. Adaptation implies also the use of the classical methods, still in use and useful in some contexts and for some categories of users. Hybrid learning is an increasing trend in education today. The traditional classroom learning has been historically proven beneficial. Hybrid learning is rather a series of different learning strategies going from teacher-centric to student-centric. This improves the critical thinking, creativity, self-management, self-study, and advance problem solving thinking of the student.
We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.
Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.
Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.
The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.
