Aus dem Ausschreibungstext:

There is little doubt that digital innovations have initiated a vivid discussion concerning the reformation or adaptation of higher education in general (cf. Wiley 2009, Strasser & Greller 2014). Especially in the field of teacher education, certain developments concerning a curricular implementation of digital technologies in initial teacher education and teacher training (including post-graduate teacher education, and continuing professional development/teacher development) can be noted. However, experts (cf. Wiley 2009, Siemens 2004) suggest that especially technological developments have often not been didactically implemented in teacher education/development curricula. Nevertheless, institutional stakeholders, teachers and trainers are expected to react to these considerable deficiencies and develop or offer modern approaches of teacher education/development curricula that meet the zeitgeist of learners considering the latest pedagogical innovations and developments in technology (mobile learning, Social Media, Web 2.0, ubiquitous learning, etc.):

  • How does teacher education/development deal with the fast-paced and partially transient nature of the internet?
  • How does teacher education/development (critically) reflect on a certain shift of paradigm (innovations vs. traditions)?
  • How can digital technologies be actively implemented into existing curricula?
  • How can technology-enhanced practice be conceptualised/applied within a teacher education/development context?
  • How can they be quality-assured?
  • Which qualitative criteria can be developed for different domains of digital (blended) learning and teaching in teacher education/development?
  • What are the troubleshooting strategies to ‘de-mystify’ the complexity of technological issues?
  • How can trainers and students be socialized with new learning technologies?

Topics of interest include approaches to implementation of digital technologies in teacher education/development (initial teacher education, teacher training, post-graduate teacher education, and continued professional development) that build on the use of:

  • Mobile learning/teaching
  • Flipped classroom
  • Cloud services/utilising the cloud
  • Use of Social Media/Web 2.0
  • Reflective practice with ePortfolios
  • Open educational practice (MOOCs, OERs)
  • Open assessment vs. e-assessment
  • TELL (technology-enhanced language learning)
  • Interactive Whiteboard (IWB)
  • Specialist software

Deadline für die Einreichung von Beiträgen: 07.02.2015
