The ESCoP Museum

Dear ESCoP Members,
the ESCoP Museum website is continuously updated and you can see the changes here.
Unfortunately, we are still missing a lot of materials and we need your help. We especially lack data about Summer Schools that took place before 2008. We are also still looking for several conference books: from the 2nd Conference (Madrid, Spain, 1987), the 3rd Conference (Cambridge, UK, 1988), the 6th Conference (Elsinore, Denmark, 1993), the 12th Conference (Edinburgh, UK, 2001) and the 13th Conference (Granada, Spain, 2003).
We also have problems with identifying two documents containing conference abstracts. They are here. Maybe you know which conference they might be related to?
If you have any information or materials that could be placed on the website please contact Michał Wierzchoń. We can’t get any further without your help!

1st ACM Conference on Learning at Scale
 4-6 March, 2014
Atlanta, USA
This conference is intended to promote scientific exchange of interdisciplinary research at the intersection of the learning sciences and computer science. "Learning at Scale" refers to new approaches for students to learn and for teachers to teach, when engaging large numbers of students, either in a face-to-face setting or remotely, whether synchronous or asynchronous, with the requirement that the techniques involve large numbers of students (where "large" is preferably thousands of students, but can also apply to hundreds in in-person settings). Topics include, but are not limited to: Usability Studies, Tools for Automated Feedback and Grading, Learning Analytics, Analysis of Log Data, Studies of Application of Existing Learning Theory, Investigation of Student Behavior and Correlation with Learning Outcomes, New Learning and Teaching Techniques at Scale.
Registration is now open.
