Abstract

Awareness and reflection can be viewed from the differing perspectives of the disciplines informing Technology-Enhanced Learning, such as Psychology, Educational and Learning Sciences, or Computer Science.

A common denominator can be identified, though, and enhancing ’awareness’ of learners and other participants involved in learning processes by technology means augmenting formal or informal learning experiences, typically in real-time, with information on progress, presence, outcomes, workspace, and the like. Supporting ’reflection’ then means enabling learners to capture, adapt, re-evaluate, and share experience in anticipation of future situations it will prove relevant to. Reflection supported digitally is a creative act, adding sense and meaning to experiences made.

Combining support for 'awareness' and 'reflection' bears huge potential for improving the learning and training with respect to utility, self-regulation, usability, and user experience.

The ARTEL workshop series brings - for the 4th time in 2014 - together researchers and professionals from different backgrounds to provide a forum for discussing the multi-faceted area of awareness and reflection.

For this year 2014, the workshop organizes discussion and meta-reflection amongst researchers around the application of awareness and reflection in practice, its impact on learners and questions of feasibility, and sustainability for awareness and reflection in education and work. This year's workshop theme is:

How does computer-support for awareness and reflection need to be embedded into practical (working or learning) contexts in order for learners to benefit from such computer support?
