The Computer Science Education Research Conference (CSERC) is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of computer science education. It embraces a broad view of current and future trends in computer science education and aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results. CSERC considers full papers for presentation at the conference.
Creative Learning Lab develops innovative learning environments and installations. This is a research and development laboratory that wants to stay in close connection with the perception of young people and the wishes of teachers.
The research agenda of Creative Learning Lab focuses on the following themes at the moment: playful learning, co-creation, media literacy and user-centric production. But it's not a static agenda: new, relevant subjects will be added where needed.
The Creative Learning Lab is part of the Waag Society, an ICT research foundation working in the social and cultural domain, located in Amsterdam.
To answer questions about the added value of IT and new media for education, the Creative Learning Lab initiates small scale projects in a direct cooperation with end users to develop prototypes and pilots.
ECREA (European Communication Research and Education Association) is an international non-profit association that aims at providing a discussion forum where researchers and others involved in communication and information research can meet and exchange information and documentation about their work.
CSI’s academic research conference in Scottsdale offers three tracks: Education, Business and Behavioral Sciences: The Education Track provides a colloquium to share research that emphasizes inquiry, evidence-based practice, best practice and promising methods. Academic and action research on all education issues is welcome. The Business Track provides an assembly for business educators, professionals and practitioners to investigate academic and action research, discovery and evidence-based practice. Areas of study may include business, economics, management, accounting, law, ethics, management information systems, finance, foreign trade, international politics, instructional strategies, curriculum design and related subjects. The Behavioral Sciences Track provides a forum to explore research that perpetuates thought leadership and represents critical enrichment in the areas of addiction, adolescence and youth, adult development, psychology (applied, clinical, developmental, environmental, industrial/organizational, school), social work (clinical, school), human development, counseling and therapy, substance use/abuse, and related fields.
The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) is a world-leading centre of expertise in digital information curation with a focus on building capacity, capability and skills for research data management across the UK's higher education research community.

The 2012 Mobile Learning Day will allow experts from Canada, England, Switzerland and Germany to discuss about the implementation of Mobile Learning in different areas. Three workshops will also allow participants to exchange experiences and make contacts. This will take place on November 8th in Hagen.
In the last years, E-learning has confirmed itself as a real and complementary learning form. The so-called Blended-learning concept takes advantage of the place and time flexibility of e-learning and the individuality of coaching and face to face training. The rapid diffusion of mobile devices (cell phones, smart phones, tablets, etc.) makes it necessary to rethink the so-called mobile learning but creates also new challenges:
- the displays are smaller
- the learning units must be smaller because Mobile Learning is used mostly in short periods (for example waiting times)
The Mobile Learning joint research project involves big corporations, small and medium businesses, a university and a german public institution.
Mobile Learning Day
On November, 8th 2012, 9a.m. – 5.30p.m.,
at FernUniversität in Hagen in Ellipse Room.
