About the Early Researcher Symposium

The Learning Lab presents an opportunity for Early Researchers in the field of mobile learning to present, discuss and evaluate their own work. The event takes place over 28 hours and will bring together the mobile learning early research community, with methodological contributions from eminent academics in the field who will offer support to participants through structured opportunities to discuss their current research. The event format will maximise engagement and encourage the development of a resilient and vibrant research community by building capacity in an area where currently early researchers are thinly spread and where research methods, practices and philosophies are still evolving rapidly.

The symposium is being organised by John Traxler, Director of the Learning Lab, University of Wolverhampton and Prof Mike Sharples, Director of the Learning Sciences Research Institute at the University of Nottingham. The event is endorsed by the International Association for Mobile Learning (IAML) and it is anticipated that there will be opportunities to publish ISBN registered findings which will become available shortly after the event.

Contributors to the event include:

· Dr Peter Lonsdale, University of Nottingham – Mobile Investigative Techniques

· Dr Giasemi Vavoula, Leicester University – Mobile Evaluation

· John Traxler, Learning Lab – Mobile Research Ethics

· Dr Chris Dennett, Learning Lab – Technologies Surgery

· Prof Mike Sharples, University of Nottingham – Theories of Mobile Learning

· Prof Agnes Kukulska-Hulme, Open University – What makes Good Mobile Learning research.
