Ganz frisch aus der Presse ein interessanter Call fÃ¼r 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 QualitÃ¤t fÃ¼r 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:
– mentoring, coaching & facilitating
– assessment methods,
– contextualisation and personalisation of content,
– location awareness,
– performance support,
