EDEN Research Workshop - Impressions

Highlights in the EDEN Research Workshop sofar are the
  • session on Audiovisual Issues, and especially the presentation by Jack Koumi, a specialist on media characteristics,
  • the keynote by Rob Koper, who starts from an interesting definition of competences,
  • the interview that Tom Wambeke and I did of Stephen Downes, who will be doing a keynote later,
  • and the election of the paper of Alberto Cattaneo & Elena Boldrini as Best Paper during the conference dinner.
Sofar a very positive experience.

EDEN Research Workshop - Barcelona

Currently at a - potentially very interesting - research workshop in Barcelona (Spain) - more info on the EDEN Website.
A number of interesting keynote speakers, but also the format of the other sessions promises to be very exciting, with much debate and discussion and little presentation.
I'll try to do some live blogging on the way.
(Already said hi to Stephen Downes)
