Workshop Papers

(Season’s) Greetings, everyone!

Today, I’m posting the first batch of position papers that have been submitted for our workshop this month. These are all initial drafts, intended to give us a general idea of our colleagues’ work in advance of the meeting — this is to say, do read them, but don’t treat these as final versions.

For those of you who don’t see your paper below, please be in touch with me if you haven’t already. If you’re going to be a bit late with your contribution, that’s OK, although it’d be very helpful to have an idea of the title or general subject by the start of next week.

Without further ado:

Computer-Aided Argument Mapping: An Educational Revolution? Martin Davies.

In with the in crowds. Jon Dron and Terry Anderson.

Rethinking literacies, learning and research methodology around archaeology in a virtual world. Julia Gillen.

The Academy and the Digital: Knowledge, practices, devices. Robin Goodfellow and Chris Jones.

Digital literacies: competing discourses and practices in higher education. Mary R. Lea.

Cognitive tools for epistemic engineering. Rosemary Luckin.

Identity and Context – The Reader and the Read. John Traxler.

Schedule and Location


Our workshop is now only two weeks away — and I imagine it’s helpful to know where and when it’s taking place. Without further ado:

We’ll be meeting at the London Knowledge Lab, nearby the IoE in Bloomsbury. Directions and a map are available from here; the address is as follows:

London Knowledge Lab
23-29 Emerald Street
London WC1N 3QS
Tel: (0)20 7763 2137

We’ve booked both of the seminar rooms on the ground floor (they’re not numbered). We’ll be primarily using the larger one, though the smaller one will be available, should we need it. The receptionist is aware of the event and will direct people to the rooms. We’ve confirmed both WiFi and projection capabilities.

The working schedule for Thursday’s meeting is below. Although the brunt of the day’s activities will be taking place from 10am – 4:30pm, the room will be available from 9:30 for coffee and conversation.
