Mälardalen INteraction & Didactics (MIND) Research group is organizing a symposium on the 15th of June in Västerås. The theme of the symposium is “At the crossroads of artefacts, technologies, and pedagogies: Interactional pathways for learning and teaching”. Together with researchers from different universities in Sweden and Finland, we will discuss our ongoing research as well as future directions. The symposium brings together projects that address the use of online translation tools, smartphones, telepresence robots, mobile observation tools, and other artefacts both in formal and informal learning environments, with a focus on micro-analysis of interaction.
Please send an email to olcay.sert[at]mdu.se by the 8th of June if you want to join us.
