DULP & SPeL @ ICALT 2012: Exploring Emerging Technologies and the Future
of Technology Enhanced Learning

3rd Workshop on Design Centered and Personalized Learning in Liquid and
Ubiquitous Learning Places &
5th International Workshop on Social and Personalized Computing for Web
Supported Learning Communities

in conjunction with ICALT 2012
The 12th International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies

Rome, Italy
4-6 July 2012


The proposed workshop is the result of merging the experience and
background of two workshops centered on ubiquitous personalization and
future visions in TEL: DULP and SPeL. Both workshops have as core topic
the personalization of learning experiences as well as the future
development of personalized learning environments. DULP stands for D ->
Design Inspired Learning; U -> Ubiquitous Learning; L -> Liquid Learning
Places; P -> Person in Place Centered Design, thus summarizing and
bringing together a number of current trends and researchers. DULP started
as a national effort in Rome, Italy, in 2009; after the first steps, an
international community has been built, and a series of workshops started
at ICALT 2010 and continued at ICALT 2011. The SPeL workshop has as
general topic the social and personal computing for web-supported learning
communities, leading towards the creation of a truly social and adaptive
learning environment. The workshop has been held during the last 4 years
in conjunction with the SAINT 2008, WI/IAT 2009, DEXA 2010 and ICWL 2011
conferences respectively.
