Technological change, driven by new discoveries and market forces continues in all technical areas enabling advances in products, services and processes. To support this pace of change the world needs a continuous supply of appropriately qualified engineers, scientists and technicians. This need is present in all the major technical challenge areas identified in forward looking strategic plans such as those identified in Europe’s Horizon 2020 initiative. It is Higher Education and training organisation’s roles to produce appropriately qualified individuals to enable these technical challenges to be met. This is achieved through appropriate curricula, teaching and learning environments and methods.
ITHET 2015 will have a special theme as well as all the traditional themes of previous events. This year we want to explore the curricula and teaching methods appropriate for the future global technical challenges. You will be able to choose between the usual paper presentation in a session or in poster form in special poster sessions. Also this year’s conference will feature a research students paper competition so please encourage your researchers to submit.
This edition of ITHET will be held in Ever Caparica Hotel, at Costa da Caparica, Lisbon, Portugal, from 11 to 13 June, 2015.
Aside from the regular presentations, the conference will include keynote addresses with speakers from both industry and academia. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in any of tracks/topics listed below, but not limited to:
- Curriculum: Curricula for key global technical challenges
- Pervasive: Higher education as it is changing with the advent of pervasive information technology.
- Virtual: Virtual laboratories, classroom, universities
- Delivery: Changing delivery patterns and asynchronous learning.
- Quality: Quality management and accreditation issues in technology-rich environments.
- Roles: Changes in the roles and relationships of learners and teachers in technology-mediated environments.
- Innovation: Innovative uses of technology for teaching and learning within higher education and training.
- Assessment: The impact of technology on assessment practices in higher education, with particular interest in support for self- and peer-learning and evaluation, and the challenge of plagiarism and cheating.
Special Sessions: Aside aforementioned topics, special sessions are also forecasted. We cordially invite to organize special sessions. Details can be found at conference website.
Tutorials: A Call for Tutorials proposals can be found at conference website.
Proceedings: All papers presented during the conference will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.
