European Workshop on e-Learning Standards Best Practice -AT-ICALT2009
ICOPER invites to a workshop on best practices in use of standards to support delivery of learning at ICALT 2009, Riga - Latvia, July 14 - 18, 2009

Call for papers to be presented at the workshop at ICALT 2009 on standards for Learning, Education and Training
Tore Hoel, Oslo University College, Norway
Vana Kamtsiou, National Center for Scientific Research ''DEMOKRITOS'', Greece

Workshop Description
The workshop i organised by ICOPER in co-operation with other European projects, e.g., ASPECT, ROLE, and others.

Five themes inpired by the ICOPER educational framework will help us structure the workshop.

1st Session: Setting-up the Learning Content Spaces/ towards a Business Model for the ICS (Why Should I Share? ¨C what repositories, what interfaces)
2nd Session: High-level scenarios and use cases for competency driven higher education
3rd Session: Instructional models: current practices
4th Session: Content development for reuse: Digital Rights Management and different distribution models
5th Session: Use Cases & Standards for Learning delivery (from instructor lead/LMS based to PLE self directed)

The aim of the workshop will be to report on best practices identified by the ICOPER and other projects; and to give an overview of the findings concerning the suitability of specifications and standards in use in European higher education and life long learning institutions, as well as in schools. We would also like to invite interested parties to joint the best practice network which is open to experts in the field.

We would like papers and presentations on the themes outline above, and on

modelling, coming up with the big picture of interoperability issues concerning delivery of competency-related content, e.g., based on scenarios and use cases gathered by the ICOPER project covering cross-European practices within higher education and life-long-learning.
short presentations on relevant standards and interoperability issues concerning the five elements of the ICOPER educational framework.
The main part of the workshop will be dedicated to discussions on how to bring the bits and pieces together in a reference model that is easy to implement. Pragmatic interoperability aspects related to the dissemination of the reference model will addressed soliciting best practice advice from the global participants of ICALT 2009 .

Workshop Organization

The workshop will last for 2.5 hours. Speakers will give a 10-15 min presentations (depending in the number of accepted papers). The last 30 min of the session will be devoted to a general debate about the presented approaches and the future perspectives.
Target audience
The workshop is not exclusive to, but is meant especially for:
- Developers, educators, pedagogical experts, and students interested in learning design and / or the impact of affect on learning.
- Researchers who are exploring or plan to explore the impact of affect in learning designs, and / or learning technologies.
