Call for Papers for the 21st E-Learning Day 2022

How do emotions and language influence the (online) learning process?


The traditional E-Learning Day at FH JOANNEUM is taking place for the 21st time this year - on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, the motto is "How do feelings and language influence the (online) learning process?". The ZML - Innovative Learning Scenarios organizes the conference, which also takes place in an online format again, this time in cooperation with the Department for International Relations.

Emotions influence learning. The impact of positive or negative emotions on learning outcomes is something teachers experience themselves and observe in (their) children, students and learners. Language, as a medium of communication, has a significant impact on the learning process. This year we are focusing on the learners: the students, the pupils as well as the participants of our online trainings.
How does our value system manifest itself in the language of instruction?
How do university teachers, schoolteachers and trainers deal with the emotions of their learners (and their own) and to what extent do we succeed in creating linguistically adequate, appreciative and motivating challenges?

Present your concepts, projects and experiences from university, school, or company online on the topics:

Emotions in learning

  • How do you take learners' emotions into account in preparing/teaching/assessment?
  • What experiences have you had with emotions of individuals or groups? What went well/where did something go terribly wrong?
  • Would you like to share your good practice examples with us?

Language in learning

  • What role does language play in the teaching/learning process, what changes in online settings?
  • What is the importance of language in the expression of feelings? How are feelings communicated linguistically in online teaching?
  • How do individual values linguistically influence (online) teaching?

We look forward to receiving your contribution by Wednesday, 02 March 2022 and will notify you of the acceptance and format of your submission by Wednesday, 16 March 2022 at the latest.
