Personal Epistemology and Learning (PEL) conference
National Taiwan University of Science and Technology
Taipei, Taiwan, 16- 17, December, 2009

Personal epistemology refers to individuals’ beliefs about the nature of knowledge and knowing. This conference, with the theme of “Personal Epistemology and Learning,” is devoted to elaborating the interplay between personal epistemology and learning. This conference will discuss how personal epistemology may play a role in the learning process and outcome. In addition, instruction, curriculum design, and the cultural impacts on the development of personal epistemology have received growing interests among researchers. It is hoped that international practitioners contribute papers for presentation at PEL conference to share their research findings and best practices, as well as exchange updated views of recent development in the field.
