Conference Theme

Research has shown that learning style is influenced by context (e.g., Entwistle, 1997; Kolb, 1984; Prosser & Trigwell, 1997). The major theme of the conference is Exploring styles to enhance learning and teaching in diverse contexts. However, papers on all aspects of style will be considered. ELSIN 2010 particularly welcomes submissions that focus on key issues such as:

1. Understanding the implications of style for teaching and learning
2. Student learning styles and teaching strategies
3. Putting style research into practice in the classroom
4. Flexibility of style
5. Developing methodologies for researching style in human performance
6. Style test development and psychometrics
7. Networking knowledge production and dissemination in style research

This is not intended to be an exhaustive list. Papers can be empirical or theoretical/conceptual. The key criteria for ELSIN 2010 are that submissions should be conceptually, theoretically and methodologically sound, and also that they have something interesting, relevant and original to say about styles and strategies of learning and thinking.

Call for papers

The Conference organizers are now inviting the submission of abstracts.

All participants who want to present at the ELSIN 2010 conference are asked to submit an abstract by 15 February 2010. Submissions should be of high quality, unpublished, original work related to a theme of the conference or of relevance to ELSIN delegates. Contributors can submit proposals for posters, individual papers, round tables and or symposia.

All submissions will be assessed in a double blind-review process by the scientific committee of the ELSIN 2010 conference together with the University of Aveiro research steering committee on academic merit and relevance to the conference themes.

ELSIN 2010 Book Proceedings and CD, both with ISBN, will be produced with all accepted full papers submitted.

Papers submitted to the conference will also be considered for special editions of two journals:
