EC-TEL 2011 – Call for Papers
Sixth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
Towards Ubiquitous Learning
20-23 September 2011, Palermo, Italy
EC-TEL is a unique setting for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in Technology Enhanced Learning from Europe and other continents to meet together and exchange on the current challenges and advances in the field. At EC-TEL, experts and young researchers in Computer Science, Education, Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Social Science, as well as entrepreneurs have the
opportunity to establish collaborations, strengthen their links and cross-fertilize their core disciplines.
EC-TEL 2011 will push further the Ubiquitous Learning paradigm by not only tackling the challenges of exploiting new trendy devices in various contexts, but also by investigating ways to meet and support formally and informally the learners in their learning playgrounds and social environments thanks to innovative scenarios.

The STELLAR Doctoral Academy Board has selected Dade Nurjanah as the winner of the Excellence Award for the 2010 STELAR Doctoral Mobility Programme.
Dade, a PhD candidate at the University of Southampton, was hosted by Dr. Eelco Herder at the L3S research center (Hannover, Germany), where she performed research on the role of the teacher in adaptive TEL.
We bring here some words from Dade’s host, Dr. Eelco Herder:
“The most important reason for selecting Dade for the Doctoral Mobility Award is the clearly visible progress she booked during her internship. In the report she puts a clear focus on the role of the teacher in (adaptive) TEL and analyzes several authoring tools and standards in terms of functionality, usability, efficiency and interoperability. As expressed by herself as well as her supervisor at the L3S, the Mobility Programme helped her in finding new directions, contacts and resources. Apart from this, her work strengthened the connections between Stellar and Grapple by relating Grapple outcomes and work-in-progress to the Stellar Grand Challenges. As a final point, we appreciate the concrete plans for future work and dissemination, as expressed during the interview.”
