DescriptionThe seminar will explore a number of notions drawn from developmental psychology and cognitive science in the context of the new digital age with the opportunities for knowledge sharing that that offers. The context will be both formal learning (in schools and universities) and experiential (knowledge gained through working on tasks). The issues are based upon empirical research and are underpinned by theories from cultural-historical school of psychology originating in the 1930’s in the Soviet Union. The topics will be considered under the following themes: formal and tacit knowledge; sharing professional knowledge; knowledge acquisition processes; the nature of learning; levels of activity; distributed working and learning; coping with complexity.
(Email: r.lewis@lancaster.ac.uk) Professor of Knowledge Technology Robert Lewis is currently Honorary Professor of Knowledge Technology in the Department of Educational Research at the University of Lancaster and has recently been Visiting Professor at the University of Geneva and Coordinator of Research at Neurope Lab on the French Geneva Campus at Archamps. In this latter capacity he was coordinator of DELTA Project D2017 - JITOL (Just in Time Open Learning) and also of Project D2042 - NECTAR (Negotiating Competence Representation and Recognition). He also Coordinated a DGXII HCM network of researchers - Virtual Mobility and Distributed Laboratories and was a member of the SOCRATES ODL project MECPOL. All these projects had Lancaster as a partner. After a period of geophysics research in the Antarctic and then teaching, he joined Chelsea College (now King's College London) in the University of London in 1968, later setting up the Educational Computing Unit. He directed a number of curriculum development and research projects during the 1970's becoming Reader in Computer Assisted Learning in 1978. He left London in 1981 to set up the Institute for Educational Computing at S. Martin's College of Higher Education in Lancaster moving to the Psycology Deprtment at the University in 1983. During the period 1984-1993 he coordinated the Information Technology in Education Research Programme (InTER) for the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in the UK. He has received many large (1 MEUROs and over) R&D grants from the ESRC, the UK Departments of Employment and Education, and from the EEC. He has also been Visiting Professor in the Universities of Beograd and London, and was until recently Chairman of a Working Group of the International Federation for Information Processing for whom he has edited many conference proceedings and holds their Silver Core for services. In recent years he has worked as consultant/expert with OECD, UNESCO, the National Science Foundation, the Council of Europe, the Nordic Council of Ministers and the European Commission. He holds or has recently held awards for bilateral research between the UK and France, Spain, Switzerland and Yugoslavia. Recent involvement includes membership of the European Science Foundation, Task Force on Collaborative Learning within the Learning in Humans and Machines initiative and the Executive Committee of the Asia Pacific Chapter of the ICCE. He has edited the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning since its foundation in 1984.
