  •  Workshop description

    Are you interested in teaching the Learning Sciences in PhD or Master’s degree programs? Do you have expertise in research and pedagogies in the area of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning? In this workshop we would like to bring together the aspirations to shape teaching of the Learning Sciences in the future and the latest developments and research outcomes in the field of CSCL. We particularly invite academics from Learning Sciences programs that are or are planning to become NAPLeS members. We also wish to encourage everyone from the CSCL community who is interested in shaping pedagogies for teaching the Learning Sciences to participate in this workshop. Throughout the workshop we will exchange content and pedagogies currently used in the participating Learning Sciences programs, discuss how to design the teaching of the Learning Sciences utilizing current innovations from CSCL research, and finally collect ideas about how NAPLeS can support future exchange of innovative pedagogies between Learning Sciences programs.
    The proposed workshop intends to strengthen the exchange between academics involved in the organization and teaching of academic Master’s and PhD programs in the Learning Sciences from different universities and countries. The main goal of the workshop will be to identify how CSCL practices can be designed to teach the Learning Sciences in their programs and across different programs, starting point with the CSCL the workshop organizers and participants can contribute. In addition, the workshop aims to provide an arena for discussing how the NAPLeS network can serve the needs of academic Learning Sciences programs to maintain exchange and realize innovative pedagogies for learning in the future. Particularly, the participants will introduce their programs and specific thematic areas addressed in their programs, will discuss commonalities and differences of the various pedagogies, and will identify areas for potential joint endeavors. The workshop will be concluded by listing future learning design activities for which NAPLeS can support its members to be engaged in and benefit from.
  •  Main themes
    1. The first 60 minutes of the workshop will be dedicated to the presentation by the workshop participants of the content and the pedagogies in their respective programs. Depending on the number of participants, each participant will have up to five minutes to present content and pedagogies of their program;
    2. In the second part, for about 120 minutes, small special interest groups will be formed of participants from different programs and will brainstorm on latest innovations from CSCL research and how these could be implemented to teach the Learning Sciences within and across different programs;
    3. In the last 60 minutes, we will discuss about what NAPLeS can do to support the implementation of CSCL pedagogies in joint teaching endeavors. We will further discuss how NAPLeS can facilitate the exchange of content and pedagogies, joint teaching and learning, working on teaching innovations, or facilitating scholarly visits between Learning Sciences programs.
  •  Registration

    If you would like to participate, send an email to freydis.vogel@nottingham.ac.uk containing: a brief introduction, a short description of the Learning Sciences program you are involved, your role in this program and in NAPLeS so far (if applicable). The number of participants is limited, with acceptance on a first come first served basis. We strongly encourage academics from various programs and with various roles within their programs to participate. To be informed about your acceptance to participate in the workshop before the early bird deadline for the conference registration, please send application before May 2nd. Later applications will be accepted if space permits, but acceptance letters will be sent after the early bird deadline for the CSCL 2019 conference registration.
