Book on Networked Learning
Springer New York Publish Important Book on Networked Learning
We are pleased to announce an edited book published by Springer, New York featuring selected papers from the Networked Learning Conference. This important relationship with Springer publishers ensures a wider audience for the Conference, indicating the high quality of papers presented at the Conference and the importance of the Conference in leading and shaping opinion in networked learning.
The book features selected papers from the 2010 Conference which was held in Aalborg, Denmark, titled “Exploring the Theory, Pedagogy and Practice of Networked Learning”, edited by the Conference Co-Chairs, Lone Dirckinck-Holmfeld, Vivien Hodgson and David McConnell.
Fifteen papers from the 2010 Networked Learning Conference appear in the book, with two chapters by the editors. The book aims to show the present state of art in Networked Learning research and pedagogy, as well as providing a history of networked learning as it relates to the Networked Learning Conference, and a concluding chapter which focuses on the current trends in the theory, practice and pedagogy of networked learning. This is essential reading for researchers, teachers and students of networked learning, and anyone who has an interest in the role of learning, teaching and assessment in higher education supported by learning technologies.
Springer are sponsoring a reception and book launch on Tuesday April 4th, 5.30 - 6.30pm.
Everyone is invited and we expect several chapter authors to be present at the reception. Negotiations are underway with Springer about publishing a Networked Learning book series that will be associated with all future Networked Learning Conferences.
