Keynote at conference on Argumentation

Keynote at EARLI Special Interest Group Conference in Ghent

Michael Baker and Jerry Andriessen had a collaborative Keynote at the first conference of the Argumentation special interest group of the EARLI (European Association for Research in Learning and Instruction), august 23rd in Gent, Belgium. The title of the talk was Argumentation and Collaboration. Our claim was that without collaboration, argumentation will be less productive.

We presented a vision and model for Argumentation in learning contexts, and showed three examples underlining the role of technology, social-emotional aspects and the organisational contexts for argumentation. Our conclusion was that it takes a long time for argumentation to evolve, and that the way people argue depends on their willingness and motivation to collaborate. If we want to understand the logic and other qualities of argumentation, we should study its context and the social emotional processes in a specific situation.
