Team Tutoring Virtual Workshop Call for Papers - AIED 2021

Added by Sinatra, Anne about 3 years ago

The GIFT team is hosting a half-day VIRTUAL workshop titled "Challenges and Advances in Team Tutoring" during the Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED) 2021 Conference (the conference itself is ONLINE from Utrecht (The Netherlands).

We invite workshop paper submissions about the topic of Team Tutoring and Collaborative Learning.

The call for papers and submission information can be found at:

The goals of this VIRTUAL workshop include providing a forum for researchers to discuss the progress that they have made in team or collaborative tutoring, discuss the approaches that they have taken, the challenges that they have encountered, and/or present theoretical models on innovative methodologies to address future work on team or collaborative tutoring.

This workshop is expected to be of interest to those in academia, government, and industry who are developing tutoring experiences intended to include interaction between multiple learners. The expected outcomes of the workshop include an identification of team tutoring gaps/challenges in varying learning domains, approaches that have been successful or unsuccessful in meeting those challenges, and determining the next steps in approaches that AIED researchers can use for their own team tutor development.

The workshop will include a presentation of the accepted papers, followed by an open discussion about the challenges and current state of team tutoring. The discussion will conclude by addressing research gaps and future directions of team tutoring.
