IEL 2010

3rd workshop on Inclusive E-Learning

9th/ 10th September 2010 – King's College London

Following two successful previous workshops in 2008 (Maastricht/The Netherlands) and 2009 (Rostock/Germany), in the 3rd workshop on Inclusive E-Learning (IEL) we would like to go further into the question how we can provide inclusive systems addressing people with and without special needs and where are the limits of these demands. In our 2009 workshop we learned that e-inclusion should not be limited to supporting people with different kinds of disabilities by technology. In fact, designing systems which are per se enabled to support people with learning difficulties or special needs is probably an even more important issue.

Apart from the fact that only few people work towards these aims in the field of e-learning, collaborative learning, shared knowledge construction and the like, there is still a lack of an interdisciplinary European research community. One of the reasons is that research on e-inclusion, assistive technology, accessible systems, etc. seems to be a localised topic regarding language and cultural issues. Another reason can be seen in the fact that in the past inclusive e-learning did not play a major role in conferences which are capable to bring together researchers with different backgrounds to address the above mentioned topics from an interdisciplinary perspective.

We invite interdisciplinary researchers and developers for special solutions for elderly people, people with learning disabilities and people with special (educational) needs, to benefit from each other’s experiences. We would like to address the comparable difficulties experienced by different types of learners with disabilities, early learners and elderly people when using ICT.
