Via Norbert Pachler. I contributed to this workshop last year even though I wasn’t able to attend. Should be well worth it again.

The Centre for Work-based Learning and Education (WLE), at the Institute of Education, London, in conjunction with the London Mobile Learning Group (LMLG), will hold the
 
3rd WLE Mobile Learning Symposium: Mobile Learning Cultures across Education, Work and Leisure
 
on 27 March 2009 at the WLE Centre, IOE London, UK.
 
The symposium aims to address different audiences, with a focus on education professionals and practitioners from school, further, higher and adult education as well as clinical settings, work and leisure. It will focus on mobile learning theory and practice in education, work and leisure and will address the following themes: „Learning across contexts“, „Cultural approaches to mobile learning“ and „Status quo, visions and conjectures“. Interdisciplinary approaches and thematic crossovers, both in theory and practice, are particularly welcome. Work in progress and international contributions are encouraged.
 
Registration for the symposium is free but numbers are limited. Priority will be given to authors of accepted abstracts.
 
Important dates:
–      1 October 2008: First call for expressions of interest and extended abstracts.
