2nd International Workshop on Building Technology Enhanced Learning solutions for Communities of Practice 
Location: Crete, Greece
In the framework of the FP6 European Project PALETTE, the Computer Technology Institute (CTI), associated with the University of Patras, Greece, organize an international workshop on Building Technology Enhanced Learning solutions for Communities of Practice, held in conjunction with the 2nd European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning, Crete, on 17 September 2007. This event is supported by the Professional Learning Cluster (PRO-LC) and constitutes a unique platform for members of EU projects to exchange on their respective progresses and to present their achievements at an international level.

This interdisciplinary workshop brings together researchers in information technologies, experts in educational sciences, as well as mediators of communities of practice (CoPs). As such, it turns out to be a true face-to-face opportunity for implementing participatory design as advocated within the PALETTE project. The objective of this approach is to provide CoPs members with truly acceptable social software for information production, knowledge management, and collaborative learning.

As stated by Denis Gillet from EPFL, creator of the eLogbook PALETTE service, “CoPs are effective environments to support learning by professionals, organisations and educational institutions. In the PALETTE project, CoPs members are shaping innovative collaboration solutions that will meet their real needs, and service developers are opening new interaction realms that will enhance CoPs practices and sustain their evolutions”.

Scientific coordination of PALETTE is headed by EPFL and University of Fribourg while the management of the project is ensured by ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics.

Workshop for Communities of Practice organised by University of Fribourg and ERCIM on June 26 in Lausanne  
The FP6 European Project PALETTE, managed by the European Research Consortium ERCIM with scientific coordination by EPFL and University of Fribourg, will organize an international workshop on Communities of Practice on June 26 at UNIL-EPFL in Lausanne. This workshop will precede the EIAH’2007 conference on ICT Environment for Human Learning.

PALETTE stands for “Pedagogically sustained Adaptive Learning through the Exploitation of Tacit and Explicit Knowledge”. The project aims to facilitate and increase individual and organisational learning in Communities of Practice, which are frequently interacting groups of people who share a concern, a set of problems, or a passion about a topic, and deepen their practical knowledge and expertise in that domain.

With a good balance between technological and pedagogical experts, the PALETTE participants are developing an interoperable and extensive set of innovative services to sustain concrete scenarios of use. All these tools are designed, developed, implemented and validated on a user-centric basis thanks to the communities currently involved in the project, representing 3 professional domains: teaching, management and engineering.

The services will be open source, standard-based to ensure full deployment and free access.

As stated by Christine Vanoirbeek from EPFL, Scientific Coordinator of PALETTE, “This ambitious project will help us to transform a dream into reality: allowing anyone to use technologies for learning without any specific knowledge of the technology jungle!”.
