Welcome to Mirror


Becoming a neurologist in Germany is hard and the required documentation is cumbersome. The DocTrain App makes documentation of specialist training easy and provides a quick overview of progress and open issues. Using the DocTrain app for mobile phones or the DocTrain web-application physicians can capture their progress and share it with their mentor. DocTrain supports the individual reflection about training progress and strategies. Furthermore, it is a valuable tool for reflective discussions in the appraisal interview.



 The test version is not public because we are currently in discussion with a commercial partner. In case you are interested contact Lars Müller, FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik

Quotes from testers:

“That would help a lot”
“I like it, when do we get it?”


How does it work?

After a treatment, the physician can scan the barcode of the current patient case and select the appropriate training task from a structured list. The physician may add personal notes for later reflection or store the data directly. The user interface is very intuitive and reduces the time effort to a few seconds.

The mobile application can be used offline and synchronization over the network is only necessary, if data should be accessible in the web application or shared with the mentor. The current progress can be reviewed on the mobile device or, after synching, on the web application.

DocTrain implements the official documentation as demanded in the specialist training guideline (WBO Weiterbildungsordnung).

Important facts:
Workshop Date: September 16, 2014
Place: Graz, Austria (co-located EC-TEL 2014 and I-KNOW 2014)
Submission of Papers: July 6, 2014
Review Notification: August 4, 2014
Final Manuscript Due: August 31, 2014

In this workshop we bring together different perspectives on the topic to foster the formation of a community between psychology, sociology, pedagogy, human resources, CSCW and computer science.

This year, we want to develop the MATEL format further towards creating a structured experience base. The foundations for this experience base are participants’ concrete examples, including both, prototypes and systems as well as experience reports from the introduction and usage of approaches, services and tools that address motivational and affective aspects in technology enhanced learning. Together with participants we want to take these contributions as starting point for further discussions and sharing of good and bad practice from different contexts. Similar to other engineering disciplines, we want to explore how patterns as aggregation and systematic descriptions of good practices can help to sustain and systematize these experiences for reuse. These socio-technical patterns will comprise practices to inform both tool design as well as strategies for adoption.
