Theme: Design Learning-centric analytics
We hereby announce the sixth Designs for Learning Conference that addresses issues related to designs for learning, technology enhanced learning, design-based research, multimodal knowledge representations, embodied interaction, on-line environments, and learning ecologies. A special conference thread focuses on the design of learning environments and the implications of design for learning-centric analytics.
Hosted by: The Centre for the Science of Learning and Technology, SLATE, University of Bergen
When: 23–25th of May 2018

The Nordic journal Designs for Learning issues a call for papers for a Special Theme Collection comprising academic articles focused on re-representation of multimodal empirical material.
Visual communication is beginning to dominate communication in several domains. In education, for example, the use of moving images is easily distributed to pupils with digital tools, and students create multimodal artefacts as part of their learning outcomes. Using video as an observation tool results in a dense flow of information in different modes of communication. In design research, a key aspect of the process is the creation of interactive artefacts that are not easily presented in a traditional paper but rather requires a multimodal re-representation.
While written text is still the dominant mode of communication for research results, we are interested in exploring how multimodal transcriptions can be re-represented and transformed into audiovisual representations on a screen in an academic journal. We, therefore, invite you to submit multimedia items to be peer-reviewed for publication alongside with your written analysis.
The submission deadline is 1st of November 2017, and the instructions for authors can be found here. Articles are welcome from across the world.

We are happy to welcome two new Associate Editors to be working with Designs for Learning, namely Professor Sanna Järvelä from the University of Oulu and Dr. Anders Øgaard from the University of Greenland.
In addition to this, we would like to welcome Dr. Yishay Mor from Levinsky College of Education, Tel Aviv, to our Advisory Board.
These additions to the journal network are a part of the strategy to increase the Nordic grounding of the journal, as well as the international reach. Members of the Editorial Team and Advisory Board are asked to serve as ambassadors for the journal, and can also review manuscripts that fall into their area of expertise.
