Dear all, apologies this might have been in the eBulletin today but
you may be interested in:

Digital libraries and technology-enhanced learning:
Call 3 information days
17-18 December 2007, Luxembourg

http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/telearn-digicult/call3-infodays_en.html

Which is in the information and communication technologies strand of
FP7. The technology-enhanced learning strand, for example, lists
among its objectives:

Research objectives
The work programme aims at stimulating research that will lead to the
creation of responsive environments for technology-enhanced learning
and, at longer-term, the development of adaptive and intuitive
learning systems.

Responsive environments for technology-enhanced learning should be
pedagogically sound and compatible with business processes and human
resources management systems of organisations. They should exploit,
where relevant, interactivity and collaboration of learners. In
particular, they should be able to:
* motivate, engage and inspire learners,
* accommodate personalisation to respond to specific
learning needs and contexts (mass-individualisation)
* support the transformation of learning outcomes into
permanent and valuable knowledge assets
* enhance competence, skills and performance.

Adaptive and intuitive learning systems , as they could result from
longer-term research efforts, will be able to configure themselves
according to their understanding and experience of learners'
behaviour. These systems will
* identify learner's requirements from monitoring
progress in an intelligent way,

Expected impact
* faster and more effective learning, acquisition of
knowledge, competences and skills
* unlocking people's and organisations' ability to
master knowledge and apply it
* increased knowledge worker productivity
* more efficient organisational learning processes

Best wishes,

M
