Instructional Design for Advancing Learning in a Networked Society
Networked technology is re-designing society and education in many ways. Most educators have access to some form of newer technology. However, the instructional opportunities and constraints of these technologies when integrating them in schools, universities, professional organizations or even informal contexts still have to be investigated. This meeting aims at sharing research and insights about how these opportunities can become more evident for instructional designers, educators, students, and policy makers. Some questions that arise are: How can instructional design be enhanced by newer technologies? How can networked technology enhance teaching and learning (rather than simply add technology)? Self-regulated learning, knowledge building, dialogical approach, adaptive learning, digital identity, are some, but not all, of the concepts that we wish to explore during the meeting to understand how to advance learning by introducing networked technology.
Next to this (broad) focus, SIG 6 & SIG 7 also invite researchers to submit papers or posters with a broader view on instructional design or computer-based learning.
