    25/01/2019, 13h30 - 18h30

    (FCT-UNL – eLearning Lab)



    To expand participatory dialogues on the theme among researchers, educators, policymakers and the community at large; to identify the key research questions and build a research strategy in this domain.



    - Invited participants in two panels will present and debate (1h), followed by 20 minute open discussion. Except for a brief keynote, listed topics are therefore not structured individual presentations, but the main topic contribution from each panel member to the conversation.


    - A final joint (plenary) session will map & converge the discussion, identifying raised issues / questions and a follow-up agenda.


    - Since the objective is to have a conversation and compile research issues & priorities, to optimize the time available, we invite participants to submit (previous to the meeting if possible, otherwise shortly afterwards) complementing materials, useful to introduce themselves, and their related work. These materials can be multimedia (videos, slides, text), and will be posted on-line on the web, or only shared among participants, according to each contributor specification.

    - The session itself will be videorecorded, for research analysis.



    A first part of the meeting will be in english (roughly up to 15h), to allow full participation of our “keynoter” and non-portuguese speaking participants. The remaining part will be conducted in portuguese. Materials to be posted can be in any language, although it is recommended an english version, whenever available, in addition to original language, if non-english.



    Participants must register to have access to the meeting, either in person (e-Learning Lab, FCT-UNL, Monte da Caparica Campus), or on-line (through zoom/colibri videoconference link – requires installing a simple plug-in from zoom, free). Sessions will be videotaped; video / images will be posted in this site and / or incorporated in proceedings.


    Registration is free, but number of participants is limited to available seats, and limits to simultaneous remote location links. Non-registered persons will not have access to neither the room or a remote connection.


    To register, send email to pfa@mit.edu and kpinheiro.projetos@gmail.com.

    The event will be online-centered (webconference)




    This study helps us to clarify the epistemological basis of the new ubiquitous scenarios, as well as studies on mobility, online presence and continuous participation, inaugurating a new form of coexistence and complementarities that is the hallmark of these new learning scenarios, drivers collaborative and cooperative work.


    In each panel (lasts an hour) each participant has an average of 7 min to give their input / experience; and after each block of presentation we will have an synthesis.


    The whole process of mediation has the objective of promoting the convergence of knowledge.


    While the presentations take place, we will have support from e-planning researchers who would be sharing categories from each of the tables to converge knowledge about the challenges of ubiquitous scenarios in new ways of doing science.


    It is essential that each participant is aware of the limited time available, and do not overextend interventions, since the challenge of the workshop is to encourage the participation of all and to enable everyone to listen to each one of the participants, so that they feel true belonging to the ubiquitous scenario.


    We can always refer to complementary materials made available on-line, and, above all, we can program to continue this conversation and discussion with follow-up meetings. This is the beginning of a collaborative process, not the end of one.


    Our methodology is based on the principle of dialogism, interdisciplinary views, complex thinking and problem life cycle.
