#ascilitemlsig 2017 ASCILITE SIG Survey

2017 ASCILITE SIG Survey – please respond!
You are invited to participate in an anonymous 6 – 8 minute survey designed to ensure that the SIG is relevant to you and other members. The survey will also help ASCILITE and SIG leaders such as myself better understand your needs within the SIG.

The survey has been vetted by the leaders of each ASCILITE SIG who are all keen to know what you think.

You will find the survey here and we do hope that you can find a few minutes to complete it.

We would very much appreciate if you could complete the survey by 25 October 2017 as we will be closing the survey that evening at about 8pm.

Once we have tabulated the results, we will make them available to the ASCILITE Executive Committee, all SIG leaders, on SIG websites and in the ASCILITE member bulletin for SIG members to view.

Thanks very much for your time.

Kind Regards,

Thom & Vickel.

#ascilitemlsig A new OJS Educational Design Research Journal via @sebfiedler Hamburg Uni Press

@sebfiedler and Hamburg Uni Press have launched a new open access Journal focusing upon Design-Based Research within education:

EDeR: Educational Design Research

journals.sub.uni-hamburg.de/index.php/EDeR 

EDeR applies a Triple-Peer-Review approach. This contains three phases and introduces a

Peer-Discussion-Model:

The accepted contribution is handed to an additional reviewer who functions as a Discussant of the original text. Authors can suggest a Discussant to the Journal Editors. However, the Journal Editors reserve the right of final decision on selecting a Discussant. Reviewer III (Discussant) delivers a separate and coherent Discussion Article and is publicly attributed as its author. In principle, several Discussion Articles can be elicited for a particular contribution.

#ascilitemlsig Rebooting mlearning, surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

John Traxler (2016) asks:

What killed the mobile learning dream?

The goal of the Ascilite mobile learning SIG is go boldly beyond the Zombie Apocalypse of endless mobile learning projects that focus upon “mobile access to virtual learning environments that are being used as repositories”. For example exploring the potential of user-generated mobile AR and VR, enabling learner-generated contexts and heutagogy (self-determined learning). See for example (Cook & Santos, 2016), (Cook, Pachler & Bachmair, 2013).
