You are invited to participate in the CITE Research Symposium (CITERS) on 15-16 June 2012 (Friday & Saturday), at the University of Hong Kong. The time of the event is from 8:45am – 6:00pm on 15 June & from 8:45am – 1pm on 16 June. This year’s CITERS is in collaboration with the Education Bureau, HKSAR, Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) and HKU Libraries of the University of Hong Kong. The goal of the symposium is to discuss recent research, share good educational practices, and new technologies, with a view to furthering research and practice that support learning with IT.
The symposium’s main theme is ‘E-Learning in a changing landscape of emerging technologies and pedagogies’. There are four sub-themes, addressed through various forums, workshops, symposia, papers, demonstrations as well as case studies relating to using technology to enhance learning and teaching. The symposium will feature sessions on a broad range of topics related to improving learning through e-learning, research outcomes into e-learning designs, exploring principles, tools, policies and learning environments that contribute to engagement of the learner. New pedagogical practices and different classroom uses of Web2.0 applications, uses of wikis and blogs, eportfolios, mobile technology, etc. to support learning and teaching will be featured.
Participants are encouraged to propose presentations on a broad range of topics related to improving learning with and through technology. Research outcomes into e-learning designs, exploring principles, tools, policies and learning environments that contribute to engagement of the learner are also encouraged.
The conference has four sub-themes
- Emerging technologies: cloud computing, mobile technologies, beyond Web 2.0 – changing affordances for emerging practices
- e-Leadership: Leading e-learning in a changing education ecology – managing change in a constantly changing environment
- e-Pedagogy for mobile, ubiquitous learning - new ways of teaching with new technologies
- Learning analytics: analysis and visualization tools to support assessment for learning and just-in-time feedback
