disruptive technologies for transformative learning
The organisers of ePIC 2015 are inviting authors and practitioners to submit contributions to the 13th conference on ePortfolios, Open Badges and Identity. The theme we would like to explore this year is:disruptive technologies for transformative learning: under which conditions can disruptive technologies transform learning? Under which conditions can transformative learning impact our society, improve trust, (self-) employability, social integration and civic participation? We of course welcome all contributions related to the core themes of ePIC, which are Open Badges, ePortfolios and Identity.
Submissions can include research papers, case studies, work in progress, position papers, workshops, presentations and posters.
Following an open collaboration and review process, the ePIC 2015 proceedings will be published under ISBN 978-2-9540144-5-6.

Applicants from 22 countries tackled some of the thorniest issues around trust, privacy, and safety that are critical to learning in an open online world: How can learners exercise control over who sees and uses their data? What tools are needed need to navigate, collaborate, and learn online with confidence? What solutions will foster greater civility and respect in online learning environments?
