Book on Networked Learning
Springer New York Publish New Book on Networked Learning
We are pleased to announce our second edited book published by Springer, New York featuring selected papers from the Networked Learning Conference. This important relationship with Springer publishers ensures a wider audience for the Conference, indicating the high quality of papers presented at the Conference and the importance of the Conference in leading and shaping opinion in networked learning.
The book features selected papers from the 2012 Conference which was held in Maastricht, The Netherlands, titled “The Design, Experience and Practice of Networked Learning”, edited by the Conference Co-Chairs, Vivien Hodgson, Maarten de Laat, David McConnell and Thomas Ryberg.
Twelve papers from the 2012 Networked Learning Conference appear in the book, with a chapter by the editors. The book explores new and innovative ways of thinking about the nature of networked learning and its pedagogical values and beliefs. They pose a challenge to us to reflect on what we thought networked learning was 15 year ago, where it is today and where it is likely to be headed. The Design, Experience and Practice of Networked Learning will prove indispensable reading for researchers, teachers, consultants, and instructional designers in higher and continuing education; for those involved in staff and educational development, and for those studying post graduate qualifications in learning and teaching.
Springer are sponsoring a reception and book launch on Monday April 7th in the Playfair Library, 19.00 - 20.30
We expect several chapter authors to be present at the reception.
The previous book titled “Exploring the Theory, Pedagogy and Practice of Networked Learning”, edited by the Conference Co-Chairs, Lone Dirckinck-Holmfeld, Vivien Hodgson and David McConnell is still available.
