Earlier today Martin Dougiamas posted on Moodle.org about the upcoming Moodle Research Conference on 14-15 September 2012 in Heraklion, Crete.
“The purpose of the conference is to support networking and sharing among those who are researching Moodle and thinking about ways to improve it for different learning scenarios. It will also directly inform the development of Moodle in the future.”
This is going to be interesting aspect which was not apparent before but makes sense to learn from successful case studies of implementation of Moodle. Martin went on to explain:
“We’ve had a good number of papers already submitted for the conference, so it’s looking pretty exciting! Submitted papers range from in-depth case studies of how Moodle can be applied and used in various environments to interface design experiments and the development of whole new modules to introduce new techniques.
(Personally I love detailed and rigorous case studies. There are so many ways to apply even a stock Moodle but it’s important to understand what patterns best achieve our goals of improving education and why they work)”
They have extended the submission date until the 28th May, so if you have a paper to submit, go ahead! You have two more weeks to do so.
