Call for papers: Elearningpapers.eu on topic: Training and work

The article submission closes on 24 September 2010. The provisional date of publication is December 2010.

Today, a large part of learning takes place in a work environment, rather than in tertiary and post-tertiary education settings. In order to stay relevant and contribute to the human capital of future workers, learning needs to be tightly integrated into organizational work processes, allowing it to become a fundamental part of workers’ everyday activities. One visible result of this shift is the appearance of (on-the-job) teaching and instructing in an increasing number of expert job descriptions in many companies. Workers in this new scenario are not only in demand for on-the-job learning settings, they are also asked to take on new responsibilities and roles related to development and delivery. This has to be taken into account when learning and working processes are integrated.

Papers can be more specifically aimed at exploring the following themes:

  • New social scenarios in Training and Work, eg: the Virtual world in Training and Business; Learning Games and Simulation
  • Different innovative learning concepts and practices. Which may cover topics such as: Semantic Web Convergence and Interoperability; Generating Learning Content from Information Sources, Professional Documents and the Web; Integrating Media and Learning Management for Mobile and Instant Learning; Embedded learning, performance support and collaboration;Online validation and qualification, among others.
  • Challenges related to the pedagogical design of on-the-job training 
  • The role of different actors and applications involved in the development of lifelong learning in work environments, including the learner, the teacher, online platforms, or the institutional environment.
