Current call: Learning Tech 15

Call for papers: Learning Tech 15 – Learning spaces, borders and fringe zones

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to Learning Tech #15. The subject of this call is shifts, new boundaries and transformations in what learning spaces are – or are about to become – against the background of new technological developments.

Spaces are transformed in step with technological development and affect both people and materiality, where an increased diversity is decisive for learning. Digital technologies and online interaction challenge our perceptions of where and in what environment learning takes place. Fixed points of reference such as teaching rooms and classrooms can be dissolved, as places, spaces, relationships and forms of participation can take on new forms in learning spaces that involve digital technologies.

Therefore, Learning Tech #15 wishes to focus on how we can establish alternative understandings of what learning spaces are. What is a hybrid space? Where is it? Are there limits to these spaces?

We are looking for theoretical and empirical contributions that examine borders, border spaces and fringe zones that arise on the basis of new technological developments. More specifically, articles may address, but are not limited to, the following themes:

  • Physical, digital and hybrid learning spaces
  • How do the physical and digital interact in and across spaces?
  • Multimodal potentials and challenges
  • The learning tool as a learning space and the staging of a learning space
  • Ideals and practices in relation to different forms of physical, digital and hybrid teaching
  • The mental, affective and motivational aspects of different learning spaces, including inclusion and exclusion
  • Learning rooms and subject didactics
  • Space, marginal zones and borders – assembly and separation
  • Translation and transformation of technology-mediated learning spaces
  • Science creation in and across organizational mental, physical and digital learning spaces
  • Mixed reality and digital twins – counter-sharing learning in the double spaces
