SIG 27 Conference 2022 in Southamptom

The next SIG 27 Conference 2022 will be held in Southhamptom

SIG 27 Conference 2022 in Southamptom

The theme of the 2022 SIG 27 conference is “Online measures at the crossroad of ethical and methodological challenges”. Many researchers using online measures are facing ethical challenges in collecting data and methodological challenges in analysing data. During this conference we would like to focus on these challenges and as a community we can further try to tackle these challenges through discussion and collaboration. The conference will yield a great platform for discussion and exchange of experience with different online measures such as multimodal and multichannel process measures, eye-tracking, brain-imaging methods, psychophysiological measures such as EDA and heart rate variability, video data, log data, observational data and the challenges that come along with them.

The conference will be jointly organized by the SIG 27 and the University of Southampton, England.

FLR Call for Papers: New Measurements of Learning

New Measurements of Learning

Call for Papers – Frontline Learning Research – Special Issue

New measurements of learning:
Emerging chances and challenges of process measures.

Deadline: April 15th, 2018

Over the recent years, research within EARLI increasingly focuses on studying learning as a process (how and why does the learning take place?) rather than just the outcomes of learning. As a consequence, process measures, so far used mainly in fundamental research (e.g., eye tracking, EEG), are increasingly being applied to educational science. Process measures make it possible to measure and visualize learning processes as they happen. This application requires the development of novel methodological approaches. The current special issue aims at critically discussing these methods with respect to their explanatory power for researching learning. In research practice, these measures offer researchers many opportunities, but they also raise many challenges. These include combining process measures of different levels of granularity synchronizing measures, capturing the sequential nature of learning processes and defining reasonable epochs for analyses. Often, these challenges go by unnoticed as there is rarely any room to discuss them in traditional empirical study papers. Due to this lack of exchange, researchers often re-invent the wheel.

The contributions to this special issue should include studies on learning that apply these new measurements and put their findings up for discussion. The aim of this special issue is that all contributions reflect on the strengths and limitations of their measures and provide a statement on how informative their data can be for researching learning. The discussants will address these statements and relate the papers to the current state of learning research.

This special issue is based on the initiative of EARLI SIG 14 and EARLI SIG 27. However, all interested researchers are invited to contribute to this special issue. All articles will be thoroughly reviewed according to standards of Frontline Learning Research, an official EARLI journal.

If you are interested in contributing to this call, please send a 300-word abstract to Ellen Kok ( before December 20th, 2017.
