 2nd call for papers:
 Workshop on Collaborative learning as design activity

 In conjunction with NordiCHI 2012, October 14, Beuatiful Copenhagen, 

 The general themes are Interfaces supporting learning and Empirical 
 studies of active learners, and more specifically Wiki-inspired 
 collaborative learning systems that combine the best ideas of visual 
 models, end-user modifiable interfaces and collaborative inquiry 

 The workshop will begin with an invited talk by Professor Pierre 
 Tchounikine from the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble, France. The 
 topic of the talk will be alternative futures of educational software 
 design. The rest of the day will be divided into two: 1) workshop 
 participants present their research , 2) we develop together a 
 conceptual framework for organization and plans for future collaborative 

 QUESTIONS TO BE EXPLORED (including but not limited to)
 --What types of interactive learning environments can stimulate 
 productive learning?
 --How to leverage libraries of reusable learning components (from 
 learning objects to apps)
 --What are the strengths and weaknesses of Wiki-based environments as 
 model for integrated learning environments?
 --What should be the level of abstraction of a graphical model to 
 stimulate agency, and to what extent should the models be informed by 
 theory and principles?
 --How to view learning as a design process and leverage previous work 
 on design to create new models of inquiry learning
 --What should be the “unit of design” of a design-inspired learning 

 --Common themes for project proposals at the Nordic (e.g. Nordforsk) 
 and European levels (e.g. Horizon 2020), international 
 cross-collaboration, but also towards national funding agencies that 
 invite international cooperation
 --Creating a network of researchers with the aim to publish a 
 collection of papers in a special issue of a reputable journal.

 -- Deadline for short/positions papers: August 20th, 2012
 -- Notification of acceptance: September 1st, 2012

 --Anders Kluge, InterMedia, University of Oslo, Norway
 --Teemu Leinonen, Media Lab, Alto University, Finland
 --Anders Mørch, InterMedia, University of Oslo, Norway
 --Li Zhu, Computer Science and Communication, University of Milan,
