You are invited to participate in the CITE Research Symposium (CITERS) on 4-6 March 2010 (Thursday to Saturday), at the University of Hong Kong. This year’s CITERS focuses on ways to optimise designs and applications of new technologies that enhance learning in educational and professional development settings. The Symposium will include examples, models and standards in learning designs,  the design of multimedia learning resources and learning architectures as well as pedagogical and assessment activities that support the development and adaptation of innovative practices aimed to improve learning in sustainable and transformative ways.

Participants are encouraged to propose presentations on a broad range of topics related to improving learning through developing and/or using and re-using units of learning and e-learning resources. Research outcomes into learning designs, exploring principles, tools, policies and learning environments that contribute to engagement of the learner are also encouraged.

The conference supports the government's e-Learning initiative as recommended by the Working Group on Textbooks and e-Learning Resources Development.

The conference has four sub-themes

  • Design of e-learning resources — 
    instructional design, interactive multimedia design, Web 2.0 design, harvesting and mashing  Internet  resources, learning objects and authoring systems
  • Design of e-learning architecture
    emerging e-learning environments and infrastructure, standards for learning management systems
  • Pedagogical and assessment design for e-learning
    e-learning activities and tasks, facilitating learning through technology and engaging students in active learning online
  • E-learning & education reform
    e-learning support for curriculum change and educational reform, emerging literacies and models for technology supported sustainable and transferable change
