I’d like to point you to a workshop that you might be interested in: SIRTEL’08, is the second
which will be held in conjunction with the 3rd European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL08), Maastricht, The Netherlands.
Learning and teaching resources are available on the Web – both in terms of digital learning content and people resources (e.g. other learners, experts, tutors). They can be used to facilitate teaching and learning tasks. The remaining challenge is to develop, deploy and evaluate Social information retrieval (SIR) methods, techniques and systems that provide learners and teachers with guidance in potentially overwhelming variety of choices.
The aim of the SIRTEL’08 workshop is to look onward beyond recent achievements to discuss specific topics, emerging research issues, new trends and endeavors in SIR for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to present, and more importantly, to discuss the current status of research in SIR and TEL and its implications for science and teaching.
