Joint European Summer School for Doctoral Candidates on Technology Enhanced
Learning 2013
May 26 - June 1, 2013 , Limassol, Cyprus

We are pleased to announce the 9th Joint European Summer School on
Technology Enhanced Learning , to take place from Monday, May 27th to
Friday, May 31st, 2013 in Limassol, Cyprus. Pre-summer school activities
are organized all day on Sunday, May 26th. The summer school aims to
encourage participants to adopt a critical stance in thinking about the
role of technologies in providing opportunities for learners and the
potential of these opportunities in terms of learning.

The summer school provides a stimulating learning environment where
participants get opportunities to: develop research skills; increase their
knowledge base; collaborate with others in their own and complementary
research areas; engage in debate; have access to experts in the field; and
discuss their own work. For this summer school the overarching theme is 'i
nterdisciplinarity ' and the focus will be on the challenges and
opportunities that arise from working at the boundaries of different

The programme covers topics from a broad range of domains which contribute
to advancing the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. TEL research
projects are encouraged to provide doctoral candidates with a perspective
of the state-of-the-art research under study in their working groups. The
programme will also include practical and methodological workshops as well
as opportunities for doctoral candidates to develop their personal research
and discuss their doctoral work.

Doctoral candidates should submit their applications online before Friday
February 1st, 2013. Please download the summer school application form from
the summer school website , fill it in ,
and upload it to .
Please tick the appropriate box Doctoral Candidate application.

The Summer School will take place in Limassol, Cyprus. It will be hosted in
Navarria Hotel, located close to Amathus Ruins and very close to Limassol
town centre. Additional area attractions include Limassol Castle and
Limassol District Archaeological Museum. Regular buses to the centre of the
city and to other cities run from the main road outside the centre. The
venue is within 35-45 minutes' drive from both Paphos and Larnaca airports.
Regular buses to these locations are also available, as well as special
buses that we will be arranged for JTELSS 2013.

The cost for doctoral candidates is Euro 570 (including accommodation - 7
nights in double rooms, meals and excursions). The European Association for
Technology Enhanced Learning will provide funding to pay summer school fees
for a limited number of applicants.

If you would like to offer a lecture or workshop at the summer school we
invite you to submit a proposal (about ½ page to a full page) describing
your contribution, which should demonstrate how your presentation/activity
will benefit the doctoral candidates attending the summer school (mainly
early to mid-stage). For this summer school the overarching theme is 'i
nterdisciplinarity ' and the focus will be on the challenges and
opportunities that arise from working at the boundaries of different
disciplines. If your proposal is selected it will be published on the
summer school website.

We encourage interactive sessions rather than lecture-style presentations,
and your proposal could include details about how you plan to engage the
doctoral candidates. Lectures are usually no longer than 45 minutes and
workshops are usually 90 minutes. Some workshops run 2 x 90 minutes.
Lectures should provide students with insight into the state-of-the-art in
one aspect of TEL or methodologies for conducting research in TEL.
Workshops should provide hands-on opportunities to work with new
technologies or develop research techniques.

Please submit your proposal to Easy Chair: . Be sure to tick the
correct box: lecture or workshop proposal.

Please note that speakers and workshop organizers are expected to cover the
costs of their trip and accommodation (typically through the TEL projects
they are belonging to).

Doctoral candidates applying to participate in the summer school are also
invited to propose workshops. In this case they must make TWO submissions:
the JTEL doctoral candidate application and the workshop submission.
