This year at the Moodle Research Conference in Sousse, Tunisia they hope run some research workshops that will bring together groups of researchers interested in initiating or continuing collaborative research projects. The goal of the workshops are typically publication of papers, although they hope they may lead to other things, such as improvements in Moodle or new add-ons.
They are inviting potential Workshop leaders to propose a workshop so that they can have one or more on the day after the Research Conference (Sunday 6th October). For more information check the Call for Workshop proposals on the Moodle Research Conference Site.
They hope to get proposals covering topics such as MOOCs, learning analytics, assessment tools, third-party applications/services, gamification, feedback attention, etc..The deadline for submitting a Workshop proposals is Monday August 12, so you have plenty of time to think on it!
See the Call for Workshop proposals page for more details.
See you in Sousse!
