Call for Proposals for an International Roundtable

The STELLAR (The European Network of Excellence in TEL) Theme Team on “Social Mobile Networking for Informal Learning” (SoMobNet) invites proposals for an International Roundtable which will take place at the Institute of Education in London on 21st November 2011. Participation at the event is by invitation only and free of charge. Places are limited (max 35).

The round table will feature two keynotes, a series of paper presentations as well as two discussion sessions moderated by a facilitator and reported by a network member. The discussion sessions will provide the opportunity for participants to respond to inputs from the perspectives of their own research and professional practice. The roundtable will provide opportunity to network with colleagues to learn about each other’s work, formulate collaborative ideas and scope challenges to advance theory and practice in the field of mobile learning and social network.

Confirmed speakers include Aleks Krotoski (Guardian), Gunther Kress (IoE), Sonia Livingstone (LSE), Ben Bachmair (Kassel/IoE), Beat Doebeli (Goldau), Klaus Bredl (Augsburg) and Christoph Pimmer (Basel).
