Designed for learning

learning – teaching – research – design – technology

oh, it feels good

I’ve just been told that my thesis has won the TELEARC PhD excellence award:

The second TELEARC award, addressing PhD excellence, will be delivered on the occasion of the 2011 edition of the Alpine Rendez-vous.

The Alpine Rendez-vous is an event, legacy of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence, now funded by STELLAR, the FP7 European Network of Excellence on Technology-Enhanced Learning. It is a set of independent workshops held in the same place during a week.  The 2011 edition of the Alpine Rendez-vous, will held from March the 27th to the 31st in La Clusaz. It is organized jointly with the JTEL summer school. Again a special attention will be given to “Orchestrating learning”, “Connecting Learners” and “Contextualizing learning”.

The Technology Enhanced Learning European Advanced Research Consortium (TELEARC) has been created with the mission to keep on the legacy of the Kaleidoscope NoE. Its key objectives are: to contribute to the shaping of the scientific evolution of technology enhanced learning, to strengthen the scientific collaborations between research teams and foster integration of European research teams in the field of technology enhanced learning, to promote the excellence of European research in the area of technology enhanced learning, and to raise awareness in the area toward the scientific community, policy-makers and the general public.

Among the activities of TELEARC there is a PhD award which first edition, in 2009, was won by Dr. Gorgojo Guillermo Vega from the University of Valladolid (Spain). The second TELEARC award, addressing PhD excellence, will be delivered on the occasion of the 2011 edition of the Alpine Rendez-vous.

And if you know the history of my thesis, you know why this is especially rewarding.
