Title:  Challenges in Evaluating Educative Experiences of Flexible and
Personal Learning Environments (E3FPLE)
             in conjunction with ECTEL 2011 ((http://www.ec-tel.eu/)

Date: 20th or 21st September 2011 (day to be confirmed by ECTEL organizers)

Place: Palermo, Italy

Website: http://www.mifav.uniroma2.it/inevent/events/E3FPLE/index.php?s=138

Deadline for Paper Submission: 15th July 2011

GOALS & RESEARCH QUESTIONS

E3FPLE aims to offer an interdisciplinary arena to investigate the
complexity that will characterize more and more the evaluation of future
educative experiences (see lso workshop background). The major challenges
are to identify and operationalize relevant qualities of such experiences,
and to model and monitor their trajectories. The overarching goal is to
inform the development of effective supports to enhance educative
experiences of the stakeholders involved.
Accordingly the workshops intends to explore the following research
questions:

· Whether and how the existing evaluation methods from the field of
Technology-enhanced Learning (TEL) and Human-computer
Interaction (HCI) should be extended to address specific requirements of
FPLEs?

· Whether and how compartmentalize the respective impact of software
quality (i.e. interoperability), interaction quality (i.e.
usability and user experience with individual widgets and their
orchestration), information quality (i.e. contents delivered by
widgets and their integration), and personal quality (i.e. individual
goals, value and expertise) on educative experiences?

· Which experiential qualities are relevant to successful educative
processes in FPLEs? Are hedonic qualities such as identification,
stimulation and evocation particularly relevant? Should the learner
experience certain negative emotional responses (e.g. challenge, tension,
bewildered) or, in contrast,positive ones to achieve a stronger learning
effect?

· How should the interplay between experiential evaluation feedback and
redesign of the learning environments be enhanced? In
which ways should the evaluation feedback be collected and presented
(qualitative vs. quantitative; level of granularity; monomodal vs.
multimodal) to the design and development team to improve the uptake of
evaluation results?

In the Workshop, these and other questions arising from the workshop
submissions and discussions will be addressed. Submissions addressing the
above listed and other related questions/ideas are invited.
