4th Conference on e-Learning Excellence in the Middle East

body
CALL FOR PAPERS 2011
A leading educational institution is one that positively affects the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of its learners and its staff, so as to prepare them for success in a world where certainty is no longer the standard, where the ability to adapt to new situations has become crucial, where competitors can be either next door or on other side of the world. Already departing from rote learning, memorization and traditional classroom activity, newer paradigms are needed to harness the potential of social media and emerging types of learning technologies, to create new type of learning interventions, to make learning more effective to make sense of what people are doing together.

The theme chosen for the 4th eLearning Conference will emphasize knowledge-based, technology-enhanced educational change, effectively contributing to the emergence of a learner-centred participative environment. We invite all those engaged in triggering and managing educational changes, innovation, and excellence in e-learning to share their experiences and practices by submitting research papers, case studies, view points and reviews:

Abstract Submission: 15th November, 2010
