-- Apologies for multiple posting --

International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Sciences 
(FEIS 2018)
Pisa, Italy 10-11 September 2018
http://feis2018.di.unipi.it An event organized by the Erasmus+ EINFOSE project (http://einfose.ffos.hr)

First Call for Papers

Differences in entry requirements and learning outcomes in the field of 
Information Science (IS) cause large mobility barriers and lack of uniformity 
among Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that offer Master degrees in IS. The 
Erasmus+ EINFOSE project seeks to find out the appropriate ways and modes of 
the harmonization and recognition of the entry requirements which would enable 
students from other fields to master  learning outcomes at the graduate level 
of IS programs.  The International Symposium on the Future of Education in 
Information Sciences (FEIS 2018) is intended to provoke discussion and reach 
commonly accepted recommendations that could serve not only to partner HEIs but 
also as a model for other academic disciplines. Contributions and discussion 
are solicited from HEIs, their governing bodies, public authorities responsible 
for the implementation of EU guidelines and recommendations at the HEI level as 
well as representatives from national agencies for diploma recognition, ECTS 
implementation and Qualification Frameworks. Submissions are also invited from 
researchers and institutions to share their experience and accomplishments in 
recognition and mobility processes, building up the European Qualification 
Framework and its nationally based implementations, and in the implementation 
of new teaching/learning didactics and evaluation approaches and methods. 
Contributions from outside the EU are very welcome. It is expected that the 
exchange of ideas and experience in accreditation processes, cooperative 
efforts and joint programs at graduate and postgraduate level throughout the 
World might contribute to discussions about the future of education of 
Information professionals in Europe and Worldwide.

Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):

* Educational trends in higher education worldwide
* Information professionals in changing and challenging digital environment 
(new profiles, old skills and new competencies, social role)
* Entrepreneurship and the information professional
* Reminiscing about the future of professional education
* Ethical values in IS (Universal access, collaboration, intellectual freedom, 
* Multidisciplinarity issues and relation with other sciences (Computer 
Sciences, Digital Humanities, Economics, etc.)
* Best educational practices and current challenges
* Software tools and platforms for collaborative learning and teaching
* Open educational resources
* Role and responsibility of archives, libraries and documentation centers in 
higher education
* Entrance into the labour market of IS graduates.
