[InetBib] CfP Intl. Symposium Future of Education in Information Sciences (FEIS 2018) Pisa - 2nd CfP

International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Sciences 
(FEIS 2018)
Pisa, Italy 10-11 September 2018
 An event organized by the Erasmus+ EINFOSE project (http://einfose.ffos.hr)
Symposium web site:http://feis2018.di.unipi.it -----------------------------------------------------------------
 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 stimulate 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
 The future of information professional education
 Ethical values in IS (Universal access, collaboration, intellectual freedom, 
 Multidisciplinary 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 centres in 
higher education
 Entrance into the labour market of IS graduates.
