Call for Chapters: work-based mobile learning

Ganz frisch aus der Presse ein interessanter Call für ein Buchprojekt zu „Mobile learning in Unternehmen„. Herausgegeben von Norberg Pachler (WLE London), Christoph Pimmer (FHNW Basel) und Judith Seipold (Uni Kassel) verspricht dieses Buch doch einiges an Qualität für eine Feld, dass bisher noch wenig systamtisch erschlossen ist.

The editors welcome chapters on theoretical frameworks, concepts as well as latest empirical results in the field of work-based mobile learning. The aim is to provide innovative approaches of how mobile devices can
encourage work-based learning activities. Contributions can relate to placements as part of education courses, to (semi-formal) on-the job training provided within organisations or to the manifold forms of informal and incidental learning experiences at the work place. Also, contributions, which consider life-long learning as a sustainable basis for work-based learning and critical reviews of cultural implications of work-based learning, are welcome.
Topics of interest in the field of mobile work-based learning include, but are by no means not limited to:

– collaboration,
– mentoring, coaching & facilitating
– assessment methods,
– contextualisation and personalisation of content,
– location awareness,
– performance support,
