Emerging Technologies, Challenges and Opportunities in Education and Research

We are excited to announce that EDEN 2024 Research Workshop & PhD Masterclass will be held in Politehnica University Timisoara, Romania, next 16-18 October 2024.

The main topic of the event is

“Emerging Technologies, Challenges and Opportunities in Education and Research”

which will provide a comprehensive exploration of the latest advancements and challenges in educational technology, with a special focus on the integration of AI in education, European University Alliances and their roles in research and digital education, the burgeoning concept of micro-education and microcredentials, as well as the application of AR/VR technologies in educational settings.

Find below more information about the tracks of EDEN 2024 Research Workshops & PhD Masterclass in Timisoara:

Educational Technologies

This theme will cover a wide range of emerging educational technologies beyond AI, focusing on open educational technologies, interoperability of education systems, as well as open education principles in digital assessment tools, and collaborative online learning environments. Discussions around how these technologies can enhance engagement, accessibility, and effectiveness in education, while also considering issues related to openness, digital divide and technology over-reliance.

AI in Education

On this track we invite papers that focus on how artificial intelligence is revolutionising educational paradigms, the AI’s role in personalising learning experiences, in creating tools for automating administrative tasks, data literacy for AI, but also on it affects educational assessment, challenges such as ethical considerations, data privacy, and the need for balanced human-AI interaction in pedagogy.

AR/VR in Education

We invite papers discussing the use of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in educational settings. Presentations showcase practical applications of AR/VR in creating immersive learning experiences, especially in creative industries to complex scientific simulations, the challenges of ensuring educational quality in these virtual environments.

Micro-Education and Microcredentials

The conference will create discussion on the evolving concept of micro-education, the growing trend of microlearning and microcredentials, emphasising their potential in providing flexible, skill-focused educational opportunities, with the challenges of evaluation and validation, recognition, and integration of these microcredentials into traditional educational frameworks.

Emerging Topics in Education

Other topics highlighting both the transformative potential of emerging technologies and the challenges that need to be addressed in the whole educational landscape, including VET, schools and training with current trends, challenges, and future prospects.

Research & Digital Education in European University Alliances

One of the most important topics for European higher education, we invite papers that look at how European University Alliances are fostering collaboration in research and digital education. The discussions should highlight how these alliances are driving innovation in higher education through joint research projects, shared digital platforms, and cross-border educational initiatives, in promoting internationalisation and inclusivity in education.

This presentation format is better suited to sharing the findings of case studies, research projects or more mature innovations related to the Research workshop theme/topics which allow you to provide a richer analysis, description and interpretation of the work. Importantly, a Full Paper should identify the main implications or discussion points which will be of wider interest to Research workshop participants. The paper length is 2500 to 3500 words, including tables, figures and references. If your Full Paper is accepted, the presentation time is a maximum of 15 minutes and 5 minutes for questions (i.e., 20 minutes in total).

Concise paper – A Concise Paper allows you to present a shorter summary of your work. This presentation format is ideally suited to small projects, new and emerging areas and works in progress. The format allows you to showcase and/or offer a brief snapshot of your work, with a specific focus on the main findings or discussion points that should be of wider interest to Research workshop participants. The length of a Concise Paper abstract should be 200-500 words. If your Concise Paper is accepted, the presentation time is 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions (i.e., 15 minutes in total).

The strange looking stone monument was built in the 13th century, and some historians assume it is a re-shaped Roman mausoleum. Build from river rocks, bricks with Roman inscriptions and funerary stones, the Saint Nicholas Church at Densus church makes for an interesting visit.

Couple of miles east, climb up to the ruins of the Colti fortress* in Suseni. The Castle was first mentioned in the 14th century as belonging to the Cindea family. From up here enjoy a spectacular view over the rugged peaks and ridges of the nearby Retezat Mountains.
