1st EATEL Workshop on the “Profession” in Technology-Enhanced Learning: Open Science



The head of the TIDE group, Davinia Hernández-Leo, as Vice-President of the European Association of Technology-Enhanced Learning (EATEL) is co-organizing the 1st EATEL Workshop on the “Profession” in Technology-Enhanced Learning: Open Science. The workshop will take place in conjunction with EC-TEL 2018. Information about the workshop here.

EATEL seeks to drive community discussion that can help to maintain high standards of research quality and professionalism in the domain of TEL. A Webinar series and this ECTEL Workshop on “The Profession” aims to offer spaces for experience sharing around overarching aspects related to the TEL research profession. These overarching aspects will consider challenges for our field, for example those related to Responsible Research and Innovation (from gender equality and inclusion, to public engagement, ethics, and open science). The topic chosen for the workshop is “Open Science as it applies to TEL”. Open Science is a critical issue considered by the research community at large, including our TEL community.

The ongoing phenomenon of Open Science promotes on the one hand, transparent and frequent open-access updates of research progress; and other other hand, reproducible, accurate and verifiable research. Like other fields, TEL research suffers from problems such as challenges to replicate , validity, publication bias, and high costs of access to publications. However, the use of these initiatives is in its early days and despite there starts to be some remarkable open science practices in our domain, they are not broadly known, documented and shared within the community for widespread adoption.  

This workshop invites 1-2 page submissions that present Open Science practices in our domain and discuss the benefits and challenges of Open Science as it applies to TEL. For example, submissions can explain successful cases of doing Open Science in their research and discuss obstacles (e.g. related to data management, ethics, …) they are facing, strategies they have developed, etc.
