################################################

The International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning (IJTEL) invites paper submissions for a special issue targeting young researchers in the community of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). This call for papers encourages a review of state-of-the-art of TEL topics, topped with a description of the current and future work carried out by the authors doing research on these topics.
 
IJTEL fosters multidisciplinary discussion and research on TEL including learning at the individual, organisational, national, and global levels. The key objective of the IJTEL is to be the leading scholarly scientific journal for all those interested in researching and contributing to the technology enhanced learning landscape. For this reason, IJTEL delivers research articles, position papers, critical literature reviews, surveys, and case studies with the goal to:

	• provide a holistic and multidisciplinary discussion on technology enhanced learning research issues;
	• promote international research collaborations and exchange of ideas and know-how on technology enhanced learning;
	• investigate strategies on how technology enhanced learning can promote sustainable development.
 
This special issue is directed to all young researchers such as post-graduate students, PhD. students and post-docs working in topics related to TEL both in academia and industry, and from different disciplines of the community (technologists, educationists, psychologists, etc.). 
 
The purpose of this special issue is manifold: (a) to provide a better overview on TEL research lines; (b) to investigate and expand current TEL research themes; (c) to promote international and multidisciplinary collaboration and exchange of ideas among young researchers; (d) to encourage young researchers to formalise their research questions, topics, and methodologies.

Young researchers are invited to submit articles with reviews of the state-of-the-art research in any TEL-related area. Each focal area covered in this special issue shall provide an authoritative, timely, accessible, and critical overview on recent developments that are pertinent for TEL. The reviews should not only summarise existing literature, but analyse, synthesise, and interpret the state of the art in a novel framework for thought. For example this can be done:

	• by identifying different theories and/or approaches;
	• by classifying different research waves (see e.g. Lesk 1995);
	• by elaborating different dimensions (see e.g. Sire et al. 2011);
	• by developing a taxonomy;
	• or by elaborating tensions, disagreements, etc. between the different works of the past.

It is furthermore expected that reviews are written from an interdisciplinary point of view. This means that every article is expected to provide references from at least three disciplines: education, psychology and technology. Furthermore, articles are required to include a section on research challenges that emerge from the state-of-the-art. These challenges must be substantiated by a concrete scenario. Articles that do not follow these basic guidelines will not be considered for publication.

Possible subjects include but are not restricted to the following:

	• Effective learning strategies, models and methodologies 
	• Deployment of ICTs in educational practice
	• Web 2.0 and TEL 
	• Semantic web and TEL
	• Computer-supported collaborative learning
	• TEL and knowledge management
	• Emotional and motivational aspects of TEL
	• Adaptive and personalised hypermedia for TEL
	• Ubiquitous and pervasive technologies for TEL
	• Intelligent Tutoring Systems and automated feedback
	• TEL practices in different educational/learning contexts
	• Policies for the promotion of TEL in education
	• Educational Games 
	• 3D Virtual Environments 
	• Augmented Reality in TEL
	• Connecting learners through TEL 
	• Orchestrating TEL
	• Interoperability in TEL 
	• Learning analytics and educational data mining
	• Formative assessment and feedback
	• Ambient displays and wearable devices
	• Visualization techniques for learning
	• Awareness and reflection in TEL

All articles submitted for this special issue of the International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning (IJTEL) will be subject to a one-stage review process. Authors should submit a full article which will be subjected to a double blind peer review before publication. Articles must not exceed 15 pages, and in alignment with common standards for literature reviews, they are expected to include 50 or more references.

To submit a paper, authors have to register on TELeurope (http://www.teleurope.eu/), login, and join the group "IJTEL Young Researcher Special Issue" (http://www.teleurope.eu/pg/groups/19112/ijtel-young-researcher-special-issue/). This call as well as the submission instructions can then be found on the group’s page "Call for Papers YRSI 2012" (http://www.teleurope.eu/pg/pages/view/137244/call-for-papers-yrsi-2012-stateoftheart-in-tel). Additionally, authors can use the group’s discussion section to outline, discuss, and get feedback on their initial ideas. Interested young researchers are explicitly encouraged to use alternative media (such as SlideShare, YouTube or Prezi) to express their ideas for a contribution in this Special Issue. This forum will be monitored and moderated by the guest editors of this special issue. Furthermore, the clinic provides a platform for furthering cross-fertilisation among authors. Authors who would like to invite co-authors to submit a joint paper can indicate that fact when discussing their ideas. People who are interested in a collaboration, can then express their interest and leave their contact information, so that the proposal's responsible authors can contact them.
